My thoughts/TIPS about this PROJECT:
First – DON’T BE INTIMIDATED. This design looks really challenging, but it’s so easy, you’ll be surprised! If you’ve gotten the hang of C2C crochet, and you can follow along a graph, this blanket is not going to be hard for you. The hardest part is managing the yarn, but even that wasn’t as big of a deal as I originally thought. And if you get too tangled, just snip off a few of the balls and reconnect them on the next row, you’ll just have a few extra ends to weave in.
I found it easier to work on this project at a table, it helped me keep things a little more manageable once it got to it’s widest point. You could also probably work on the floor. I am sure there are better ways to manage all of the balls of yarn, but for me I just tossed them all in a little bin (seen in the pictures below) to keep them from rolling around too much, and untangled them as I needed to.
Yes, there are going to be a LOT of ends to weave in. I always use a backstitch method for weaving in – this is a great tutorial on how to do that. If you can commit to all that end-weaving, I promise you won’t be disappointed. This blanket is a gorgeous, texturey, colorful, thick, cozy piece for your home when it’s complete!
