I finally finished my autumnal shades blanket a few days ago!
It took just a little over four large (250g) balls of magic aran yarn and is based on repeating THIS scarf pattern. I then added a border of single crochet all around, and a second round of double crochet to finish it off.
It’s absolutely riddled with mistakes, but I don’t care – I love it. It’s gorgeously soft and warm, and I shall look forward to snuggling under it during the colder months.
And I had enough left over (just shy of three balls) that I’m going to get my scarf, gloves and headband set in these gorgeous colours after all!
