Crochet Along: Finished!

Remember this project I started in April, well this should show you how tortoise like I really am sometimes.

So we were crocheting this great throw seen here below. I used a dark blue red heart yarn from my stash. Talk about stash busting! I used up 4 skeins with this bad boy, not to mention I had to open a 5th!

Alright..... So apparently I am not good at Crochet Alongs. This blanket took me a long time to do. Ok... well not exactly. It took me less time than I thought, I just beat around the bush and then crocheted it up in a week.

I have a horrible photo of it in the beginning stages:

And I have a lovely photo of what it looked like when I gave it to my Grandmother!

Overall I really liked this pattern. It was very easy to memorize and didn't take too long to finish. I think a better yarn would make it look WAY better, but I liked the way it turned out. It is definitely a small throw. I think it would even qualify as a baby blanket. It measured only 36 inches square when I finished it. I used an L hook and crocheted it VERY loosely. A larger hook would not be a bad idea for this project!

This was a great project to get those Post stitches from rusty to perfected!

Now I need to go work on the sweater I have been taking FOREVER to make! Have fun crocheting.
