It was very simple to do. This is my second crocheted project so it was very easy.
I didn't follow a pattern, but if you can chain and single crochet then you can make this blanket in just a few nights in front of the tv.
If you'd like to give it a try here are my "how to" instructions:
You will need:
18 balls of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick yarn (I used "Oatmeal")
Q crochet hook
My finished blanket (not including the fringe) measures 53" x 57"
Using two strands together, chain 65 plus 1 and turn. Single crochet into each chain until you reach the end of the row (65) then chain 1 and turn. Keep going in this manner until desired width. I didn't count the number of rows I crocheted...I just kept going until I was almost out of yarn, but still had enough yarn left to add a fringe to the ends. The blanket looks good with or without the fringe.
It is a very quick blanket to "whip up" and by using two strands of yarn it makes this blanket very heavy and very warm!
If you are a beginner crocheter like me then give it a try. It's quick and easy and a lot of fun to do!
Thanks for stopping by!
