Start of my moms blanket

I used my own pattern when it came to making my mom's Christmas blanket.

I used a lot of destash yarn for this project.  Mostly full skeins I didn't have a idea for, they were all fairly new. The others, the red, burgundy, some pinks, and the border I bought just for this blanket.

All Yarn is Red Heart Super Saver

I took my colors, laid them out the order I wanted, and began rolling the first into a ball.  When that skein ended, I tied another color... 

The last few colors I pulled straight from the skeins.


First off I started with a circle. 

Circle( see previous post)

When ready to make it square you do 3xsc in 4 corner.

I did 2 rows sc, 2 rows dc.. Making sure to place 3 stitches into the corner. 

( last stitch, chain 1. Sc or dc 3 into next stitch. Continue sc or dc round)

Last group( stripes)... I did hdc & worked 4 colors

Row1, first, opposite end, add 2nd color- row3

Row 4, add 3rd color on 1 side( not used)

Row5, add 4th color

Then went around with colors til 7 rows on each side, cutting one color at a time.

Then I added the border
