Well, I'm pretty sure that the wool eater only uses two stitches, chain and what is written as double treble, which makes it triples all the way through, or yarn over twice.

You got it, mwagen! Sometimes you make a cluny group and sometimes you do separate triples (without leaving all loops on the hook). As you read the directions pay attention to the corners, because you end up doing 12 stitches in them as opposed to the sides, where you only do 8 stitches.

Well i haven't done a very good job of keeping this CAL going  Cheesy

BUT I did finish! I took about a month break from crochet, but it's a very quick project. Here's some pics I've been meaning to post. Did anyone else start?

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

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

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

so in when i can afford more yarn!

It may be on the designer's page, or maybe Ravelry, but someone's making it in Caron Simply Brights. Cheap and really saturated colors; it's beautiful!
