It's official, I have decided to "go for it" and make a large blanket from the crocheted filet starburst squares I've been working on. Of course I could have stopped at baby blanket size, but when my sweet eight year old requested a crocheted blanket for his birthday (in two months....there's time!) well, I just couldn't disregard his request! I've never made a large crocheted blanket, you know the size that could be a bedspread on a twin bed, so there's always a first! Of course if I make one, I'll definitely have to make at least two, younger brother won't want to be left out of this one!
I'll admit, the color scheme is a bit random based really on the skeins of Red Heart super saver yarn I brought back from the US last January, but I think after I add some white, and possibly black, using white (or grey) to crochet them all together with a raised edge it will somehow work out? Not 100% sure whether to use the variegated squares, so I'll just have to make more and decide when I lay the whole thing out. About fifty squares down and another twenty or so to go. And fortunately by the time I'm ready to crochet the blanket together, the weather should have cooled down just a bit!
For the pattern for this square see my previous post here. Enjoy, this is a great take along project to work on all summer long!
