Project

Memphis' Blankie

What are you most proud of? I'm proud of what I've created. This is the biggest blanket and crochet project I've made. The colors go so well with one another. I always received compliments from ppl who saw the WIP over time. What advice would you give someone starting this project? 1. You'll need at least 3 balls of each color of Brava Sport. I used 2.25 balls of each color. 2. Know how to make the turning chain for HDC and where to place your hook next. 3. HDC one more row of the color you start with after the foundation chain; then HDC two rows of the next color. 4. I used an invisible join method when switching colors. I can't post the link b/c the original is now wonky. 5. When starting the first round of the border, you can hook where you want when working perpendicular to the stripes. 6. When you hit a corner area before HDCing the next side, HDC 3x in that st to create a better looking corner.
