Hello! It’s Lynda here from Homelea Lass and I’m glad that you’re joining me in making the Macarla Blanket.
This blanket was inspired by lazy mornings in bed and snuggling on the couch. There’s something so special about a chunky blanket, and the softness and warmth of your Macarla Blanket will wrap you and your family in love.
The stylish ribbed texture of this blanket is created by double crochet (US single crochet) stitches that are worked through the back loop of the stitch below. The ribbed lines of the border and the centre run perpendicular to each other, and the stitches on the edges of the blanket are worked through both loops to give the blanket structure and strength.
Once you finish the Original Macarla Blanket you can add another border by making the Extended Macarla Blanket.
