Simple Blanket

My mother requested a blanket for my grandmother. Requirements: not too large, easy to clean.

The result:

I used cartridge belt rib and Simply Soft Caron acrylic yarn. Very basic, but tedious. Blankets take forever.

Hopefully my next blanket is a baby blanket (i.e. very small!)


This project has been a year and a half in the making, working on and off in front of the TV. The blanket is big enough to fit a queen sized bed –each row took about 15 minutes. I used 16 balls of yarn knitting a moss stitch. Plain but functional. I knew the blanket was a success when the dog began using it as her favorite sleeping spot. The downside: it shows every single dog hair.
