Mr.Fantastic and I like to relax on the love seat after a long day's work.  Sometimes we get chilly, so I made this blanket just wide enough to cover both of our laps.  I made it the same length as the couch is wide so that when not in use, it fits perfectly on the back. ^_^

I used Oddly Linked stitches (10 loops tall) and Bernat Waverly yarn in Aqua Frost, Greek Sea, and Turtle Green.  I really love this yarn - it's so cushy!

The oddly linked stitch is fabulous!  I have never tried the 10 loops one, but I might have to after seeing this gorgeous blanket!  Your tutorial was the best pattern I eve paid for online!  Thanks for continuing to make it a versatile stitch!

Love the colors and the ribbing look!
