From the blogger:"Sofa Sweet Sofa is a cozy crochet sofa throw that is quick to make and oh-so luxurious to use. This blanket is great to nap under, and it can also be shared. The yarn is soft and fluffy, thus making the throw warm and comfy. The giant shells give it a fun look and also make it quick to crochet. In addition, it's perfect for cuddling under with Amir the Elephant, whom I shared with you a few weeks ago!"
The Hudson's Bay Company was founded in Canada in the 1600's and still endures today. With its iconic colours (and its more modern, turn of the new millennium, grey-scale) it's "stripe spotting" branding is known worldwide. For my blanket I opted to use the grey-scale as it fits nicely with the colour scheme I plan to use in my little boys room. The pattern would also look wonderful in the vintage HBC colours! Give it a go!!! If you make one please share a picture; I would love to see it!

The Three Hour Throw lives up to its name - you can crochet this jumbo afghan in less than 3 hours! And you don't even need a giant hook - just Bernat Blanket Extra and your own hands, and the free crochet blanket pattern on Moogly! To make the Three Hour Throw, I used two strands of Bernat Blanket Extra held together - and that made some really big stitches! Crocheting with your hands isn’t really any harder than crocheting with a hook. You still yarn over with the yarn before pulling it through loops.
