I was going to do 3 rounds of each color but I'm trying to conserve my colors. The blue variegated near the middle is vintage Simply Soft that I bought years ago. I'm also mixing in some Red Heart Soft Yarn as I have a lot of that too.
I agree.... it's easy. I'm not that great at knitting but I just did one pattern repeat this evening...
I didn't follow the chart but the typed instructions and it really was easy I'm not sure if I'm going to have enough yarn (of these colors...) to finish it as I just wanted to try it out but now, I'm hooked on illusion knitting
I changed my mind about the Red Heart for the moment and decided to use Simply Soft. I've been looking for a worthy blanket to use my lone, cherished vintage skein of Simply Soft Periwinkle Ocean Ombre. The one on the right is using my cherished vintage yarn.
I really wish they'd bring that colorway back *sigh*
Oh, I'm doing the small squares on size 10 needles
i saw this on ikea's website for $30 and i love it... but i think i'd get so much more satisfaction out of it if i made it myself... what does everyone think?
For myself, I'm not sure that I'd get done with a blanket that size any time soon. 1X1 ribbing is a headache and doing a whole blanket in that would stretch my patience a great deal. if it were me, I'd probably buy it. But that's just me... Most of the time, buying something that I could make myself grates on me but under certain circumstances, I'll give in if I'm really in love with whatever it is.
