Big Red [part 2]


For the past 2 nights (the night I made my first update & last night), my husband and I watched the last few episodes of the past season of Breaking Bad. MY.GOSH! If you don’t know, the show is pretty intense and fast-paced. We watched 3 episodes each night, after the kiddos went to sleep. I sped through 2 more skeins of yarn! My hook was FLYING!


306.365: Big Red part 2

My current blanket stats:
J hook, 3 skeins Simply Soft yarn
Beg chain 160 (~48″ wide)
46 rows of the offset shell stitch (~27″ tall)

I’m out of yarn, so I will be making a trip to Michael’s, tonight. I am getting 4 more skeins. That should make the blanket dimensions about 54″ x 48″ when I’m done. I’ll do 3 more in the current pattern, then start the border with my last skein. The blanket will be substantially big. I hope it gets some good use!

  • the blanket is coming aling well, I see! good job and I hope it will turn out how you want it to be :)

  • That is really pretty! Like the pattern and the red is really vibrant but not neon-ey like some reds can get. Love it!

  • Lisa, You and I have a serious connection right now! I started making this blanket last night while my husband and I were watching Braking Bad! Crazy!
    Anyways, I’ve done about 12 rows….mine is shorter then yours and it is purple but I’m loving it! This is so much fun!

    • OH MAN! That’s such an awesome coincidence! We finished season 4 and now I’m trying to figure out what I can watch that has a similar pace to keep me crocheting fast.

  • I love the red that you’re using!
