Crocheted Double V Stitch Blanket


This is the year-long crochet project that I thought would never end. But today I am happy to report... it is finally finished!

I started this blanket last fall with every intention to finish it. Then, my sister made a special request for this double sided shell blanket that she wanted me to make her for Christmas. Needless to say, it took every free moment I had to finish her blanket in time for Christmas, and then I became a little burnt out on making blankets. So as soon as the weather turned cold enough to crochet (below 70) this Fall, I kicked my butt in gear and got to work on finishing this beauty.

I am beyond excited with the final product! It is so warm & cozy and I am so thrilled to curl up on the couch with it each night.

While blankets are very time consuming to crochet, it is a great feeling of accomplishment every time I finish one! I've already got a few more patterns up my sleeve for the next one.

WHat is your favorite thing to crochet?
