Crazy Crocheted Blanket: DONE!

It's finished! My big, crazy, yarn-eating blanket. I wove in all the ends yesterday (which was a fairly large job on its own). I'm so happy with the finished product; I'm looking forward using this in my dorm next year. I ended up buying two skeins of yarn for it (the last two blue stripes on the blanket), because I actually ran out of yarn at my house. This was such a good way to use up all the skeins I'd been pointlessly hoarding! Since I already had 95% of the materials, this blanket only cost about $6. 

Here it is on my bed; I won't actually be using it there, but it doesn't look bad, right? (Also, do you think I have enough pillows? My bed is so comfy.)

It's legitimately huge; like, almost too much to carry all at once. I think it's around 6x6 feet. Because it's a square, it's big enough for 2 people... The perfect cuddling blanket. I'm satisfied; now I just need get back to sewing things.


  1. It looks great. I love crocheted blankets.

  2. Ahh this is so lovely! Wish I could crochet. This looks like the ultimate snuggle blanket :)
