Day 20: A Monster of a Blanket


I found the Vintage Vertical Stripe blanket pattern at Bella Dia back when I was still a new crocheter, nearly a year ago. I loved it, and I couldn’t wait to start it. I don’t think I had made a single blanket completely at that point, so that is my excuse for starting such an enormous blanket. I had no idea how big 250 stitches done with an I hook would be!


See how this thing hangs a bit over the back and folds over a bit at the back of the seat? It is folded in half, too! It is giant!

I really don’t know what I will do with this, it is probably going to be too big for my bed. I will have to find someone with a king bed to give it to maybe. Or maybe I will just keep it for snuggling with the kids–they are always yanking the blankets off of me if we try to share on the couch.

At any rate, I really felt that adding 5 rows to this thing was an accomplishment–that is 1,250 stitches, enough to feel productive, even if they do go fairly quickly. I love the colors, and it is a great way to use up some of my stash, something I definitely need to do more.

Anyone else making a VVS?
