You’ve got to love camel stitch. I just love the faux knit rib effect, it works so beautifully on a large scale piece such as this.

The blanket is crocheted lengthwise, so that the rows run from top to bottom. With the yarn I chose, the blanket is 175 stitches long and 82 rows wide and the final measurements are 44” wide by 75” long. I am considering buying some more of the same yarn and making it just slightly wider, but it’s really fine as it is. I recommend making a 4” by 4” swatch, and then use that to calculate how many stitches/rows you’ll need to get the size of blanket you want, then from that – calculate how much yarn you’ll need to buy.
