Star Blanket

A while ago I saw the most beautiful wool by Scheepjes, called Whirl, turning from one color into another while crocheting or knitting. I loved the wool but didn't really know what to make with it, until I found this (free) pattern for a blanket. 



The blanket is really easy to make. When you're a tight crocheter, like I am, I would recommend to use a larger hook or more wool to get a bigger blanket. The pattern says the blanket will be about 104 cm wide after 37 rounds, but even after doing 50 rounds, my blanket only measures just 90 cm.  

The Scheepjes Whirl I used is called Liquorice YumYum. I love licorice (or drop, as it is called here in The Netherlands)!
