Hello! Do you love to crochet? Do you love twill yarn? I was given some of the lighter twill yarn, and thought it would make a lovely blanket with some darker brown twill.
I started with the yarn in the above picture and then needed a couple more of the dark brown as I went along.
The fun part of this blanket is that the yarn names are chocolate chip and oatmeal. Makes it sound yummy doesn't it?
I went looking through the many patterns that are out there, and I settled on doing a granny ripple stitch. It's so easy and here is the free pattern: Country Fair Chevron Crochet Pattern.
The blanket ended up being about 5 foot by 5 foot.
It is now on my son's bed and he loves it!
Now my other son has asked for a blanket just like this but all in camouflage. So when we were at the store this week, (and yes I always look at the yarn) he pulled out the last five balls they had and plopped them in the cart. Then said...please? I couldn't say no.
I am delighted that they enjoy and desire to have homemade things.
Thank you for dropping by! Praying you have a wonderful day!
