I've been working on this blanket for a few months now.
And all this time, it's the first time I've laid it out!
It's as wide as our queen size bed!
It is a kit I got from Wool Warehouse. Several of us ordered them through Attic 24's blog.
And it's the coastal ripple blanket.
I can't wait to snuggle up in it!

I had a question about the size of my blanket and how many chains I hooked.
The original pattern calls for 213 chains, which is what I did. However, Lucy (who designed the afghan) uses a 4mm hook. I use a 4.5mm hook. So that makes up for some of the difference. And I probably crochet a little looser than she does.
My blanket is a little over 5 feet wide (5.25) and hers is a little under 4 feet wide (3' 11.25") She posts in cm.
Her afghan fits a single size bed, but she doesn't say if it goes down along the side of the bed. My blanket fits to top of a queen bed, but does NOT go down the sides. Maybe an inch or two but that's it.
Now, having said all of that. There is a good chance that I will run out of yarn in this kit before I finish the blanket! I will either stop and call it finished, or order another kit to finish it. I'll decide when I get closer to that point! It'll probably depend on how tired I am of the project by then.
