Yes...I have been working very hard on this during the past week. I am so happy to have a finish that is also part of my UFO challenge for 2012. This has been one of the first projects I listed that I wanted to get finished. WooHoo! I love the jewel tones of the Drops Paris cotton yarn that I used for this blanket. They look really nice against our cocoa powder brown couch.
When I found out I was running out of some of the colors, I had to make a decision about how I wanted to finish off the blanket. I worked with the hexagon shape and created a shape that we can use as a throw on a chilly day but also looks really nice just laid over the back of the couch. To edge the blanket, I crocheted two rows of double crochet in the brown then a third row of double crochet in beige finally creating a scallop by doing a single crochet in the previous row of double crochet followed by 3 chains. Skip one dc and sc in the next dc followed again by 3 ch. Simple but really effective.
I love the fact that after crocheting for two years, I finally feel I can really play with stitches and create a look I like. I have developed some crochet courage. *grins*
