It’s finished it’s finished it’s finished! :D
I am SO happy with this blanket, seriously, I can’t stop touching it and feeling it and snuggling up under it and spreading it out to gawk at all the gorgeous stripes… I’m in love.
I used Scheepjes Softfun yarn, my favorite yarn because it’s just so soft, and comes in wonderful colours! I hooked this up in a 4mm hook. The blanket has 21 stripes, where I repeat 7 colours 3 times. I used 14 skeins of Softfun; this blanket is a yarn gobbler! I had little bits left at the end of some skeins, but others I completely ran out of (thank goodness I had just enough to finish the rows!).
I finished the last row with an extra 3 rows of single crochet stitches, to give it a finished look, and to make the ripple more prominent. The finished blanket measures about 1.40 by 1.40. I intended it to be a little longer (and not square) but I had grossly underestimated the amount of yarn I would need to make this blanket bigger! But this size is perfect for snuggling under when I’m on the sofa watching Netflix, so I’m a happy Wink :)
