bernatblanket_clue4_5

The final clue – clue #4-  of the Bernat Blanket Stitch Along has been posted! It went live today, Monday, October 24th and all we are doing is adding on the final border of the blanket! Although, I couldn’t resist adding a fun little extra touch to my project :) With a yellow circle in the center, my blanket was begging for a smiley face!! With Bernat Blanket yarn in black (technically “coal” color), I crocheted two eyes and a smile and have include the smiley face pattern below for those of you who might want to add a smiley face to your blanket as well! It does look beautiful without the added face so no pressure!

    I LOVE the added face. You’re right, a big yellow circle is just begging for a smile haha!
    How does this yarn feel? I’ve come across it many times but I was never sure it would work up in a way I liked, so I haven’t actually used it before.
