I did it! I did it! I finished the V-Stitch blanket (throw) completely! Even the yarn tails are weaved in! Hurray! lol
This photo, above, shows the size of it on a queen sized bed. It is 44 inches wide by 66 inches long. I used 5 cakes of Mandala Baby yarn, in the color Far Far Away, and a 5 mm hook. There was no pattern for it, but I did follow a stitch pattern called “Winning Ways” which I found in a Leisure Arts book (which you can find/buy here, but I bought my copy at Walmart).
In this photo, below, you can see a close-up of the stitching, as well as the color pattern. The pattern consists of chains, sc, and v-stitches. It is very simple and “mindless”. The second and third rows of the pattern are simply repeated until you’ve had enough, lol.
Here’s Olivia impatiently waiting for photos to be done so that she can use the blanket…
And last, but not least, here is a photo of the little monkey snuggled up under it on her little roll-a-way bed. I think she’s claimed the blanket for herself 🙂
I thought about putting a border around it. I saved a small amount of yarn from the end of each cake, just in case, but in the end I decided to just leave it as it is.
And that is it. Now I can move on to other projects 🙂
