hand crochet lap blanket

Step 1
FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: 42" x 36"

GAUGE: 3 sc = 4"; save time and check your gauge.

NOTE: This lap blanket is made using seven strands of yarn at a time, held together and worked as one, giant strand. Here are the yarns you should be holding at one time:
  • 1 strand of Patons® Classic Wool Roving® in Natural
  • 1 strand of Patons® Classic Wool Roving® in Low Tide
  • 1 strand of Patons® Classic Wool Roving® in Aran
  • 2 strands of Loops & Threads® Cozy Wool™ in Fleece
  • 2 strands of Loops & Threads® Cozy Wool™ in Mushroom
You will need a total of 12 skeins of Cozy Wool™ and nine skeins of Patons® Wool Roving to complete this project. 
Step 2
Working with seven strands held together, begin by making a slip knot. Use your fingers instead of a hook to ch 29, and turn.

Row 1: Sk the first ch and sc into the second ch from the hook. Continue to sc into each ch until you reach the end of the row. Ch 1 and turn.

Row 2: Working in the back loop only, sc into each st until you reach the end of the row. Ch 1 and turn. 

Rows 3-23*: Rep Row 2.

Finishing: When you reach the end of your final row, knot off your yarn and trim the excess, leaving a tail of 4"-6". Weave in this tail, as well as the one at the beginning. 
 
*The project has a total of 23 rows, but you should have enough yarn left to crochet additional rows, if you prefer.
