My newest blanket! When I was re-decorating my craft room I found an old blanket, that I started years ago. The edges were uneven, as I was just learning to crochet at the time. I used a ton of different yarns and stitches, all in shades of gray and white.
The old bit was a bit more ‘elaborate’ – I practiced different stitches and used different sizes of hooks with different yarns (no wonder the sides are wonky!)
Onto this I added simple wide stripes of double crochet rows on a 5mm hook. I just wanted to get the job done, really, so wide 1 skein stripes it was.
I left the sides wonky, but with the wide edging (and some blocking too) you can barely tell. It was great for using up all of the partial or full skeins I had lying around!
