|Crocheted Cowl by the author|
My second project was an easy scarf pattern. I am making a gift for a child at the school. He has asked me to teach him to crochet and since that first lesson he has been busy making gifts for his family members. I thought he might like to have a scarf of his own. The scarf is 8 single stitches across each row. Easy peasy.
After I finish his scarf, I think my next project will be a throw or blanket. Perhaps the one featured in the following video.
This video is a bit long, but excellent in showing a step-by-step blanket pattern with this yarn. It shows steps from start to finish. Please note, how soft and lush this yarn appears. It feels even better than it looks.

Bernat blanket yarn can be found at craft stores as well as online. It is a Gauge 6 - Super Bulky Chenille yarn. It comes in ball size: 300 g/ 10.5 oz, 201 meters/220 yards. It is machine wash and dry. When I bought my first ball, it seemed a bit pricey. But I have made two scarves so far, and haven't gotten to the end of that first ball.
