This Little Couch Potato Siesta Blanket was crocheted over the course of one weekend (at a relaxed pace), with 3 cakes of Pool Party Bernat Blanket Stripes yarn.

The yarn was easy to work with and except for the final row of the project I let the colors come out of the yarn cake as they were dyed.

The last row I removed a small section in the dark blue in order to use the next color in the ball to complete the final 2 rows in the same color.

Two separate colors over the final 2 rows did not fit with the flow of the rest of the blanket.

So if you end up in a similar place after you reach row 50 consider cutting out a small section and allowing the next section to take it’s place to make the blanket color flow a bit more smoothly.

This was a very relaxed and simple project to crochet. I love the striped effect created by the yarn and not having to sew in a bunch of yarn ends!

Great for gifts, baby showers, children, floor blankets and cuddle time! Drew’s finished blanket measures 40 inches wide and 36 inches long. The stitch multiple is 2+1 so you can create this to any size you wish easily.

Have fun,
