I finished this blanket for my boy on Christmas day. He was rapt as everyone else in the family had a handmade blanket but him. Interestingly I did knit him a blanket as a baby but he wouldn't remember. I think I have only knitted 2 blankets but I have crocheted many now. I have cherished a crocheted blanket I was given as a baby and now to be able to crochet blankets myself is wonderful.
"Its so warm, I don't even know how warm!"
I used 3 strands of patons washed Haze which is 60% cotton 40% acrylic which is okay to work with though easily split. I bordered it with single strands.
