An airy blanket – neutral colors, crocheted in acrylic so it’s warm and soft on skin.

Aunt’s Lydia White Mercerized cotton – crochet string size 10, almost 100 yds

Crochet Hook: 6.5 mm for the blanket, 5 mm for the border

Pattern: half double crochet throughout. Use the cotton string mixed with the main color to add interest – can be in the yellow for a more discreet look or in the greys.

Size: you can make it as long and wide as you want, mine uses 20 hdc rows for every color and is about 1.50 m long and 1 m wide. The border is about 6 cm.
