The feeling must be similar as to when one welcomes their first child into the world: you waited soooo long for it, upon its arrival you giddily parade it before all, and many people – even strangers – want to hold it, again and again.
Yep, I just finished my first crochet ‘child’, the massive Billow blanket. Well, the first crochet child of mine that I like (ugh, you messy cowl!).
It took me 6 long months to finish (almost enough time to make a baby!), but the journey was pure joy, as Billow is such a luscious yarn to work with and features a scrumptious color palette.
The nitty gritties:
- I used 3 hanks each of Cornmeal, Ash, Sagebrush, Lichen, Gosling, and Natural, in that order.
- I chained 120 and did granny stripe from there on out.
- The blanket measures roughly 60″ wide by 63″ tall.
- I used a Harmony Crochet Hook in 6.5mm.
Suggested uses for this buttery-soft blanket? Snuggling with, taking naps on the lawn, a living room tent, a magical cape …. that is, IF you can manage to get out of bed while this delicious blanket is on it!
