This was so much fun to crochet! I really thought it would be a bit larger with the amount of yarn I used! Oh well, it is the perfect size for an adult lap blanket. I thought that if it was completed in pastels, it might make a baby blanket. But, on second thought, the buttons would be a very loud NO NO.
This pattern never became repetitive to me and I usually loose interest halfway through and have to concentrate my efforts to finish. I think the many varied styles of squares and edges contributed to holding my interest throughout. The bonus is that it is a dense heavy blanket, warmth will not be an issue.
So, back to cross stitching the stocking! I fell a bit behind and need to make up for it. If I can get ahead again I will reward myself with starting a new afghan! Cyn
