Here is the finished product!
I took one of those ginormous skeins of handicrafter yarn (bernat brand) and worked up this blanket in one week. I loved the pattern that I found in a stitch book. So here is the pattern for a blanket. It turned out 3 feet long and 2 feet wide using a size H hook and a 14 oz skein of Handicrafter yarn.
Row 1: Skip 2 ch (counts as 1 dc), 2dc in next ch, *skip 3 ch, 1 sc into next ch, ch 3, 1 dc into each of the next 3 ch, repeat from * to end, leaving 4 ch left. sk next 3 ch, sc in last ch. Turn.
Row 2: 3 ch (counts as 1 dc), 2dc into 1st sc, * skip 3 dc, 1 sc into 1st of ch 3, ch 3, 1 dc into each of next 2 ch, 1 dc into next sc. Repeat from * across, ending with skipping the last 2 cd and then sc into the top of the turning chain.
Repeat row 2 until you run out of yarn!
It worked up so quick, and I love the way it looks!
