So here she is:
Wouldn't you just LOVE it if this was your actual carpet??
It's not a large blanket--just a nice sized throw. I probably could have made it bigger, but I think I got a bit bored with it and just ended it. I fringed one side of it, and let it sit. And sit. And sit. And then I finally fringed the other side. Gave it a wash and dry and now it is super soft and snuggly. The yarn was three one-pound bags of mill ends--a hot pink, a lime green, and white. I have no idea the brand, but it feels to me like it could be Caron's Simply Soft, but I'm not positive. I still have plenty left, and I have no idea what I'm going to use it for.
It really is quite a simple stitch. I don't remember how many I chained, but I think it would have to be divisible by 4, plus 3 (for turning). Then it's 4 dc, 4 sc, all the way across. You turn it, do the same type of stitch in the same type of stitch (sc in sc, etc.). Then you switch colors, and do dc in the sc, and vice versa. You do 2 rows of each color, alternating the stitch pattern when you change the color.
It gives it a slightly wavy edge. I'm sure you could add a border and even it out, but I didn't as I like the look of the wave.
I love the look of fringe but don't care for applying it. When I was younger I used to absentmindedly pick the fringe loose while watching TV. I would murder my younger self if I caught me doing that now. Don't I know how much work that is?
So that's that. I have had an insanely busy four days (I don't know when I've ever done so much work before!), but almost all the Christmas decorating is done and I can concentrate on the crafty makes that I've got dreamed up. I'm off to snuggle with tea and some crochet and watch some TV. Have a good week!
