Velvet Blanket (4)

I’ve used up the first six skeins of velvet chunky yarn, and now it’s time for me to start decreases! They seem to be pretty simple to understand, and this blanket is AMAZING. It’s very heavy, almost like a weighted blanket. I can’t wait to use it.

3/12 skeins down! Once I get 6 done up I’ll start decreases. I’m hoping it I just stick to my 1 skein a day I’ll get it done without too much hassle. It’s quite large and heavy now, and absolutely warm and smushy! I can’t wait to use it.

My mother in law sent me 12 skeins of velvet chunky yarn, so I decided to crochet a quick C2C (corner to corner) blanket with it. I’m crocheting 1 skein a day, so it should be done in 12 days. It doesn’t take long at all because it’s so bulky. It’s incredibly warm and soft, I can’t wait until it’s done!

Another update! The blanket is coming along well. So far I have started all 10 colours, and now it’s time to repeat them all once. I think decreases will happen once that’s done, we’ll just have to see. Hopefully I have enough yarn for it all. It also will need some blocking since my stitches are not super even, but for just picking up crochet, I’m quite happy.

My daughter has a yellow knit blanket that she carries around with her that I made for her when she was born, but she’s starting to outgrow it, so I decided that I would make her another one. The problem is, knitting blankets takes FOREVER. They’re beautiful, but a TON of work, especially using sport weight yarn like I was going to.
