I'm really impressed by the method you used, haha. And how nice and straight and even everything looks. Cheesy

(Also, that is one of my favorite color combinations, so instant win!)

Such innovative techniques you use...wow--I love the colors but most of all, it must be so gratifying to go from the biggest to the smallest...I love shawls that sort of do the same thing...

Lovely stitches, Mio...you continue to delight and surprise!

I really like the blanket! Wondering though, is there an advantage to starting from the outside? I've made a blanket exactly like this (change of colors and everything...gotta find a picture,) staring from the middle though, and my favorite part was that it was so mindless.

I saw that you did a granny square outside in too, which looks really cool. How do you do the middle though?

Thanks!

The advantage to starting from the outside, I feel, is that it seems easier to finish.

When I make blankets in the round starting from the middle (and I've made many!), I find it harder to stay motivated the bigger the blanket gets.  Sometimes I even stop sooner than I had originally planned, just because I could!

Working from the outside means getting the super long, hard to do in just one sitting rounds out of the way when you're still super motivated about the project.

Every round gets shorter and shorter to do.

The corners end up being dc5tog instead of 5dc into middle stitch.  For the last round, the very middle, I did a bunch of dc2tog instead of 4 dc5tog. It made it more of a circle, but I'm ok with that. ^_^
