Look! more camel stitch! I just love the faux knit rib effect, it works so beautifully on a large scale piece such as this.
This blanket took me ages to finish because I started out making it super-super bulky, crocheting 3 strands of bulky weight yarn together – but I ended up not liking how it felt. It was just too heavy. So I unraveled it and re-crocheted it all over again with a single strand. Now it’s nice and warm and it’s almost summer here so I won’t have much to do with it for a while, but it’s really pretty to look at!
Personally, I think this pattern works best with a single color. I made it in white with a rather bulky. I found it made the knit pattern stand out just enough, without making the blanket too heavy.read more →
