I made doily before. I also made cardigan. However, I never made any crocheted blanket before. Why? Because a blanket, in order to give you warmth, it need to cover your body, if you know what I mean. I don't know whether I have the patient to crochet that big of object.
Anyway, I decided to give it a try.
I am trying to make below pattern that I got from japanese crocheted book.
I bought 9 balls of acrylic yarn (each 40 gram) from local handicraft shop. They are cheap. Each only cost me RM1.5 or US$0.40. So, total only cost me less than US$4.
I made 4 motifs, and this is how it looks like:
After making 36 pcs:
According to the pattern, I need to make 155 pcs total. But, I can not wait to see the result. So, after I made these 36 pcs, I joined them together to see how it looks like. Here is the result:
Nice? I think so. The problem is: I have to make another 119 pcs!
The thing I don't like about this pattern is that there is a lot of strands that need to be weave in due to color changing. Oh well.....
