Everything went well. Nothing snagged and my colours didn't run, not even the deep purple of the logwood section. The Romney singles softened nicely, although the blanket texture is still quite sturdy. She measures 107 cm x 107 cm or 42 inches x 42 inches, which is a good size for a lap blanket or a meditation blanket.
The pattern is very simple: start with your favourite granny square and keep going until you run out of yarn. I used a pattern of three double crochet, chain one, with the double crochet stitches worked into the chain one space. Each corner was increased by working three chains between the double crochet stitches (instead of chain one); on the next round, work three double crochet, chain three, three double crochet in that chain three space and continue with your regular pattern.
I'm pleased with my first attempt at crocheting a larger work. Can you tell?
