Are you new to crochet and want to make something that is simple to remember and will dazzle your friends and family? Or are you a seasoned crocheter and just want a “no thinking” project to do while you watch TV? This is great for every skill level, and the yarn is plushy, squishy, and just super soft! It really makes the project look more difficult, and it works up really fast.
This project wasn’t on my to-do list, but recently my daughter and I were at the yarn shop, and she spotted this yarn and fell in love with how soft it is. She asked me to make her a big, big blanket with it. I made several swatches of stitches for her, and she picked this one. It is a hit at my house, so I hope you give it a try for your family to enjoy one as well!
