The little lavender Linen stitch blanket is done. My tension wasn’t particularly even but I focused on being more consistent in the 2nd half of the blanket. I’m ok with imperfection but I do strive to improve!
Yarn – Caron Cotton Cakes, colorway Lavender fields
Hook size – H
Pattern is a purchased one that came with a kit but for those of you following along on my crochet adventure, I searched for a free pattern to share and you can find it at this link. It’s basically the same as the pattern I’m using except mine has a crocheted border to finish it off.
Blanket size – 34 x 40 and I used 2 cakes plus just a little bit of the 3rd one to finish my edging.
I love the texture the linen stitch creates and will be doing more blankets using it.
I had several people question whether I like the Big Cakes or the Cotton Cakes yarn better and I have to say I like them both. I’ve only got one more set of Cotton Cakes and both the yarns I bought have pastel colors and it’s a lighter worsted weight than the Big Cakes so I see using this yarn for baby blankets and the other yarn for older children and adults but it’s certainly suitable for any size blanket you’d want to make.
