I'm up for this, I have alot of reds and pinks I'd like to use to make a scrap blanket from, keeping a sort of theme while using all my scraps, we'll see how far I get!

I'm starting with the greens on this one:


Here's a close-up:



I was working on this yesterday while my fiance played the Mass Effect 3 demo (he just can't wait until the actual game comes out).  This blanket might end up being the thing I make while being an ME3 widow Tongue

It's already looking very interesting! I fear I myself don't have enough scraps or patience for crocheting blankets, but there's some cool stuff here Smiley

It is just dc stitches with some ch10 spaces thrown in. At the end you kind of chain up those ch10 spaces to make a braided look. It's called Jacob's Ladder.

Usually Jacob's Ladders go in a straight line, but that's just not how I roll. Grin

I was going to wait until the very end to do the laddering, but I just couldn't wait to see what it will look like.



I'm going to undo it now, as it'll just fall out as I'm working on it anyway - it'll be the last row that holds it all together.

I think when I do this up for real I'm going to cross the ones at the bottom, too, to bring the lines closer together.  It'll take some experimenting, I think!
