I woke up this morning wanting to make a blanket for myself. Even though we’ve been having nice weather recently I’ve been really feeling the cold.
I have a wardrobe that is bursting at the seams with balls of yarn, a lot of which is Stylecraft Special Dk, so that is the yarn of choice for my blanket. I love the choice of colours they have and for a yarn that is 100% acrylic it really is very soft.
As I want a nice cozy, squishy blanket I’m using the double crochet stitch (single crochet for US) and a 6mm hook which is quite a bit bigger than the recommended 4mm for this yarn. I think using a bigger hook with the DC stitch makes for a much softer fabric.
I’ve done a few rows already but I’m not kidding myself, I know this blanket will take quite a while to finish. I hope you will join me on my journey making it.
