I’m an idle-hands kind of crocheter who hooks stitches only while sitting in front of television or when stuck as a passenger while travelling. This particular project happened as I watched Eureka and reruns of Poirot. I liked it well enough that I’m considering a larger version in autumn colors as a project for this coming winter.
For those who crochet, the pattern I used is here: Lace Border Blanket. The pattern is not difficult, but I wouldn’t recommend it as a beginner’s project. Rows of v-stitches form the body of the blanket, which is then finished with a border of chain and double stitches to create a lace-like effect. I used Caron’s Simply Soft “Woodland Heather” yarn, which is a wonderful pale green, but any soft yarn would work well for this one.
