This Little Couch Potato Siesta Blanket was crocheted over the course of one weekend (at a relaxed pace), with 3 cakes of Pool Party Bernat Blanket Stripes yarn. The yarn was easy to work with and except for the final row of the project I let the colors come out of the yarn cake as they were dyed. The last row I removed a small section in the dark blue in order to use the next color in the ball to complete the final 2 rows in the same color. Two separate colors over the final 2 rows did not fit with the flow of the rest of the blanket. So if you end up in a similar place after you reach row 50 consider cutting out a small section and allowing the next section to take it's place to make the blanket color flow a bit more smoothly. This was a very relaxed and simple project to crochet. I love the striped effect created by the yarn and not having to sew in a bunch of yarn ends! Great for gifts, baby showers, children, floor blankets and cuddle time! Drew's finished blanket measures 40 inches wide and 36 inches long. The stitch multiple is 2+1 so you can create this to any size you wish easily.
"This crochet rustic country blanket is a great project to work on while you are staying home. I am staying home and glad to have my yarn stash. It is easy to go shopping in your own yarn to pick out a few skeins to make a blanket. If you look closely at the rows of color used in this throw, you will see that some are wider than others. This was the design plan from the beginning. The pattern starts out with 4 rows of bone colored yarn, then 3 rows of light country blue yarn, and the bone color yarn completes the set with 2 rows. In keeping with the color changes at rows 4, 3, and 2. The next color would be 4 rows of light country blue, and so on. As you can see, this lends itself well to a modern country chic blanket."
