There is a phrase that goes ‘If you are going to do something, do it well’ and this blanket, which a friend of mine is making, brings it to mind:
She is a beginner (can you believe it?) who took some lessons a few weeks ago and decided to start her crochet journey with this linen stitch blanket (see here for the pattern). Made in Drops Alaska Off white and Grey mix on a 6.5mm hook.
I am so impressed with her progress so far, and excited to think that there may be more great crochet things to come!
