The full, completed blanket, a total of 64 large snowflake motifs and 49 small filler motifs, all crochet-joined together:


Close up of the motifs and edging:


Finished size - 56 inches square


I've been working on this since early November and finally finished!

I made my throw a lot bigger than the pattern calls for.  Even if I'd only made it the size the pattern calls for, I'd still have needed more yarn.

I absolutely love this blanket, it looks so much more complicated than it is!

You can read more about it on my blog:

The finished size is 56 inches square, so about 4.5 feet x 4.5 feet. 

I'll add another picture! Smiley
