Finished : Red Velvet Crochet Blanket


I love a good finish - especially if it's been a long time coming. I started working on this 'Red Velvet' crochet blanket a few years ago with a bunch of Caron Cakes that I'd bought at Spotlight.






At the time, my son's favourite colour was red, so I decided that I'd be making it for him to snuggle up with. Well, since then, his favourite colour is no longer red, but luckily it's still in his top 3 favourites! Kids!

After working the blanket as big as I wanted, I then added a row of SC and finished with a scalloped border. I really love that wavy edge to finish off a blanket.



The Caron Cake yarn is heavier (wool/acrylic mix) than the usual 8ply acrylic yarn that I use, which means this is a lovely warm blanket. 

Even though I enjoyed working on it, it's nice to get the little shelf under my coffee table back... well until I start another project ;-)

  3. How do I know that your "finished" feeling is so nice? Because I'm nearing a finish on a crocheted afghan of my own: Moorland that was a CAL with @auiltsfromtheattic I've just looked back to my blog to see when I began and it was February 2017. Past time to be done! I'm glad your son still likes the colors you used. That scalloped edge finish is nice.
