I made this for my construction worker boyfriend who wanted a throw to cuddle with/sweat on while he lays on the couch after work with the central air cranked up, shivering & flipping through the 187 channels on T.V. and complaining that theres "never anything on". He has absolutely no interest in my beautiful knit & crochet projects that I labor on while sitting next to him while hes shivering/complaining/channel-surfing. Until one day he looked over at me and said (with a mouthful of Pringles) "th'an you make me a blanketh'...one with 'no holes' in it ?"
I was in love all over again!
So I whipped this up in worsted weight acrylic (he wouldnt truly appreciate a finer yarn) Aran fleck color done entirely in simple single crochet. No pattern. Measured his carcass on the couch..made a chain in that length, *single crocheted across, ch1, turn* repeat from star. Its durable and easy to machine-wash over & over again since its done in cheap acrylic yarn. It actually gets softer after each chip & beer stained washing. He really likes it... and its the most appreciated thing I have ever made for anyone!
