My first completed crochet project.
It's not quite big enough for a blanket but just about enough for a sofa throw, 120cm (48") square. I used Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino in the following shades and quantities, x9 50g - 031, x3 50g - 101, x4 50g - 700, with a 4 mm crochet hook.
The basic design is granny square using a double crochet stitch and two chains to link the stitches with three chains at the corners. The ruffle edge is made by making three double crochet stitches into every chain along the edge. I would recommend Baby cashmerino yarn, it's very easy to work with, washes well, does not pill, and feels extremely soft to the touch.
