Well I've done another couple of rounds so I thought I'd post a new picture. I hate weaving in ends, so every few rounds, I'm trying to stop and weave some in. So far it's working! Smiley

Im thinking red black and white. Going to use it as a 'cuddle rug' for my couch. I have a tendency to drift off when Im warm and comfy (and tired) and my partner has to drag a duvet off one of the spare beds  Cheesy so this should be easier for him. My only worry is the yarn Im thinking of is acrylic  Undecided but Im not all that keen on buying tons of nice soft yarn just for me  Cheesy gets a bit pricey. Got any hints on how to make it softer or will the stitch style keep it from getting too bad?

I don't blame you for wanting to use acrylic because of cost. If you crochet tightly, you could go up a hook size so the blanket isn't so compact and rigid. I think that might help the softness factor. I've done blankets in acrylic before and they wash up ok after a couple washes. If you could find acrylic baby yarns, they always seem to be softer - though I don't know if it's possible to find that type of yarn in those colors! Smiley

I've been workin on this blanket nonstop, it seems. It goes by really quickly! I'd say I'm about 75% done.

lol, my stitches are normally very tight, I learnt to make toys before anything else (even though I was/am doing a scarf along  Roll Eyes so now my poor scarf is all different widths, adds character  Roll Eyes Tongue Cheesy ) so Ill possibly go up a hook size anyway. Plus, bigger the hook the faster it grows  Grin.
t1g3rl1ly that looks so cool  Cheesy cant wait to start, but have to finish Christmas crochet first... although could make someone a blanket.... lmao  Cheesy Cheesy

Ohh, that looks so good! I might have to try that pattern. One question though, is the pattern written in US or UK terms?

Uk/Auzzy, but it has a key so you can read it in American too

Cool thanks. I;m an aussie, but I learn to crochet through american books, so I don't really get UK/Aussie crocheting terms
