Day 139/365: What A Pound of Crocheted Yarn Looks Like

2 Comments

I used up my big ol’ Lion Brand Pound of Love Bubblegum ball of yarn.  In case you were curious, here’s what that much yarn can produce, in a repeating pattern of crocheted shell stitches:

“Don’t stretch it,” I told Sean as he held up the afghan and I tried to take a photo.

“I’m not,” he said.  “It wants to stretch itself.”

Here’s what it looks like when resting flat:

Right now it measures 35″ by 37″, which I think is too small to be of any use to anybody except a very small child.  Since I’ve decided that this is going to be more of an adult-sized blanket, I’m going to have to add at least one more Pound of Love.  I wonder how it would look if I add the new yarn as a border and work my way out, rather than adding more rows to lengthen it.  I’ll keep you posted.

  1. I always have trouble visualizing how much yarn I’ll need for a project. It looks like a single pound of yarn would be perfect for a baby blanket. Thanks for sharing this!
