I started crocheting this blanket in January, I think. I purchased the yarn online from Wool Warehouse; it was the Attic 24 Original Stylecraft Special DK yarn pack.
The thing about following a pattern that’s already laid out for me is that I don’t have to think. I can just sit with my hook and yarn, zone out, and fall into the rhythm of crochet, which can go by very quickly. This is a particularly soothing activity when I’ve spent all day in prison being a psychologist and need to unwind.
One thing I did differently from the pattern, though, was the border. I substituted a scalloped edging instead.
Overall, I think it turned out well. Crocheting this particular style of blanket was such an enjoyable and satisfying project that I’m already planning to make another one.
