Crochet

 Crochet Blanket
just the right size for the couch to keep the chill off. 



i made up these squares last year & they were just sitting in a basket waiting to become a nice warn blanket. it was going to be a single bed blanket but i didnt want to make a heap more squares. last saturday  i layed it out & found i needed 3 more squares to finish it off.
it is a 9x7 patch about 68" x 48".
i didnt want to just sew it all together i wanted something more so on to you tube i went in search & i found a tutorial for a continuous five
chain flat braid Five Chain Flat Braid 

so on sunday i sat down & pieced it 
all together, took me pretty much 
all day, i like how it turned out, i 
will be using this method again.
