Please congratulate me on this momentous occasion! 🤣
After 9 months and 2 moves, I have finally finished my Abstract Princess blanket! I worked on MANY different projects in that timeframe as well, but this one has lingered in the “WIP” (work in progress) pile for too long.
I often hear that people like to do scrap yarn projects because it is like a walk through memory lane. Oh, remember that sweater I made with this yellow yarn? I bought that pink yarn on vacation. Oh, this blue yarn was part of that blanket.
I used mostly scrap yarn balls that were given to me so I didn’t have the same emotional response. I just like the pretty rainbow of colors. My Main Color is Bernat Cozy Styles – dark purple – and I think having that color through the whole thing really helps tie the project together.
I used the overlay mosaic crochet technique for this project and that is one reason it took so long. I am much quicker at interlocking crochet.
If you recall, I drew up this pattern after I created my Abstract Queen. That blanket fits a queen size bed and it is just too large for me and some others so I created this smaller version that ended up being not that small actually.
The back is all striped and pretty in its own right. I had a few tails to weave in from where one scrap ball of yarn ended and I had to join a new one.
The tails on the sides are all tied, so I imagine the blanket will get used as it is right now and perhaps never get an envelope border, but I may change my mind later.
I am going to celebrate my “finished” project by starting a new one! You can celebrate with me by adding more projects to your to-do list!
