I used Stylecraft Special DK in a variety of bright colours and used a 3.5mm hook to crochet it. The pattern is Attic24's interlocking ripple
(it is actually straight, my garden slopes and it was tricky finding a good angle to take this photo!)
I made it single bed sized after my eldest daughter claimed it. I probably could have made it a little wider but it's just perfect for snuggling under :)
I'll do a post about the border tomorrow but it was very simple to do. It's come out a little wavy which is a shame but it's a blanket that was made to be loved, used to make dens, sit on in the garden and be snuggled under on the sofa. I'm not too bothered if it doesn't look perfect ;-)
I think I'm going to miss working on it. Not right now though, that border felt like it took FOREVER! I started a new 100g ball of yarn for the purple and had only 35g left by the time I was finished. Yikes!
Linking up with Ginny's Yarn Along. Thanks for visiting :-)
