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!
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, here are the details:
Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts hosted a stitch along (there is a version for crocheters and knitters) using Yarnspirations Bernat Blanket Yarn! Every monday from October 3rd-24th a new clue was revealed.
