Yes it is finally done in February 2015
I started this blanket in January 2014 making one square a day and choosing the color of this square depending on my mood … the good and happy days were bright and happy colors… the bad days: greys and dark colors… the “in love” days : reds and purples… the calm, relaxed and peaceful days: cremes, whites and pastel colors
Back in early september I stopped it … completely… I was not “in the mood” anymore… and I decided to finally finish it in January 2015… so the last squares were not done depending on my mood… but I really really love the result… It is amazing to see a whole (not so whole) year in a blanket
This blanket is made of squares… each one is made of 5 rows of 12 dc… joined as I go with a last round around the square of 1sc 3ch 1sc… and I rotated each square before joining it to the others to have this patchwork effect You can find the pattern of this blanket HERE.
I used leftovers of my trusted Nako Vizon aran acrylic yarn and a 4.5mm hook…
The final blanket is 270 squares (18 x 15)
For the edging I chose to make a very very simple one: 1sc 3ch 1sc all around the blanket like the last joining round of each square. I think that a very simple design blanket like this one must have a very simple edging …
And I am really pleased with the edging
The blanket looks lovely in the sitting room and I think that it will stay forever there keeping us snuggly and cosy during the cold days
Have to leave you now… the weather is very very bad here today and there is a storm coming our way …
Wishing you a warm and happy week!
