Stripy Fun

Im almost at the end 
of this stripy goodness


This has been one of my 
favorite things to crochet


Lots of colors and 
stripy patterns


I was a little worried
about maintaining my stitch count

But with stitch markers 
its been pretty easy


I cant wait 
to get to the end of one row
and start another color and pattern


Now to decide 
on the color(s) for the border


Im thinking maybe red

  3. Oh wow! I am so pleased to see that someone else tried this! I saw it on littlewoolies' blog a few weeks ago and wanted to drop my WIP and do this CAL! I forced myself to keep working on my shawl until it's truly finished, but I am having the hardest time not lapsing into this CAL on the border of my shawl and turning it into a floor length cloak or something! I love how your blanket is turning out, and how pleased you are with the colors, as they aren't my usual colors either. I am looking forward to your ta-dah!

    1. Janet I started following this one on little wollie's blog but when I got farther than where she was I just start doing my own thing. Mine isn't as large as hers - I started with 246 stitches which worked pretty well with all the different stitches.
