Introduction: Stripes! Blanket

Picture of Stripes! Blanket

One of my favorite things about crocheting is making gifts for other people. My two submitted afghans and tote bag were presents for friends and family. I thought, it's time to make myself something finally. So I decided to make Lion Brand's Stripes! Blanket. I started it immediately after my Special Effects bag, and the blanket took me about a week and a half. I used Vanna's Choice yarn of 12 different colors following Lion Brand's Pattern, except for the color "Dusty" which I substituted for "Linen." I crocheted it with a size K hook because my gauge was too small. Using a size K hook, for me, made it come out perfect. It has three rounds of border using all 12 colors; 3 colors on each of the 4 sides of the blanket. It totaled 96 rows and approximately 45" x 65". It's warm, beautiful, and works up fast! I recommend it to anyone who wants to make a great gift for themselves or someone else!
