the rainbow connection

It is very gratifying to look over at the shelves and see this↓


I’ve counted and there are currently 26 colours of Cascade 220 and 14 colours of Cascade 220 Superwash in stock.  26+14=40 juicy colours of yarn (insert sound of the The Count from Sesame St. laughing “Ha, Ha, Ha!”).
This is good timing as tonight the Crochet Blanket Class meets for their first lesson.  Cascade 220 is the most popular yarn to chose for this project.  The colour selection is key to winning people over.  The price is also right.  Cascade 220 is the most used yarn on Ravelry with 72611 projects and counting behind it. Excellent for big projects like blankets that eat up yarn: this yarn remains easy on the wallet as well as the eyes.

The Crochet Blanket Class is where we make this stunner of a blanket ↑. The class is full for tonight but one or two will make an appearance on our fall calendar. This is one of our most popular classes and a great way to learn your way around a crochet hook.  Yes- it is open to beginners.  If you would like to try this blanket out on your own there is a version of it here including a helpful How-To with pictures and everything!

Craftily Yours

  1. does this one need sewing together at the end?

    • The pieces are put together while you crochet the borders which in this case is the white part so that there is no seaming after the fact.
