This year for my boyfriend's parents I crocheted them a blanket.  Normally I don't tackle crocheted blankets because I like instant gratification projects when I crochet, like hats and scarves.  The pattern I used for the blanket I found in an issue of Crochet Today.  I chose it because it's made of circles... 172 to be exact.  Each circle took me about 8 minutes to make so while the complete project took me over a month, each circle was very instantly gratifying.  Overall I'm very pleased with how it looks.  It is approximately 64 inches at its longest and 54 inches at its widest and fits the top of my full size bed.

That's a really cool pattern. So neat that it's made out of circles!

I have this issue of Crochet Today as well, and have yet to figure out when and where to start on this.  I love the blanket, great job!  It looks beautiful :0)
