I finally have a new project to share! I know I have said it before, but I love making blankets for presents.
This particular project was for a graduate student I worked with at Iowa State. She just recently finished her Master’s program, and I wanted to congratulate her graduation.
I chose Iowa State colors for her to commemorate her time in Ames. Happy times Angie!
I used an N (9.00mm) hook.
I followed this pattern here. She does an excellent job with her instructions. It is probably one of the best written instructions I have used.
I will say this was a tricky pattern at first. You work in a three row pattern, with each row in that triple being a different stitch combo. The first dozen rows were a pain in the rear end until I finally got a hang of the pattern. I think a lot of the trickiness at the beginning is just figuring out the varying stitches and how to hold it with not much blanket there.
I believe it took me about a month and a half to finish this.
I have two more blankets I need to whip out here in the next two months, so I better get cracking!
Do you have any good crochet patterns to suggest?
