Aqua Larksfoot Blanket

AQUA LARKSFOOT
(Crochet * Special guest: Chichi)

Today we have a special guest with a special project…
Hoy tenemos a una invitada especial, con un proyecto muy lindo… 






I had to share with you this lovely blanket that my aunt made.  It is a crochet blanket made for a young lady.  She used the “Larksfoot Stitch” (which you can find @ Crochet Geek).  I love the colors, which remind me of the ocean, and the border makes me thinks of waves.  ¡Lovely blanket, Chichi!

Tenía que compartirles algunas fotos de una linda manta de ganchillo hecha por mi tía.  Ella usó el punto conocido como “Larksfoot” (lit. pata de alondra).  Pueden encontrar un tutorial con gráfica y video (en inglés) en el blog Crochet Geek.  Los colores de la manta me recuerdan al océano y el bordillo asemejan olas del mar. ¡Linda manta, Chichi!

  16. Beautiful! Do you have the pattern for the edging? And how many chains did your aunt use for the girl's blanket? Thanks heaps!

    1. Thanks for your interest, Heather. Regretfully my aunt already gave away the blanket, and it was sent far away :-( But I remember that when stretched over a queen bed, it almost reached the width (short of 10"). I hope this helps...

    2. Thanks Ana, having the dimensions helps but perhaps your aunt can share the pattern she used for the edging to finish it off? This would be really helpful. :-)
