Blanket #5

Knit Square motif blanket using sport weight yarn

Here is finished blanket #5. I used about 25 balls of sport weight yarn that I had in my stash. The golds were an afghan kit I bought at a thrift store and I had the blues and whites. I really like this color combination as I think the blues help update the 70’s gold.

There are 48 squares in a 6×8 pattern. I crocheted the squares together and then did a simple double crochet border. After a nice little steam to set the stitches (the yarn is acrylic), I have a generous queen size blanket.

Unfortunately, have not made a significant dent in the stash. On to blanket #6…
