We’d like to thank Benita Campbell Mann for posting not only this great photo in her search for the name of the stitch, but also finding an online tutorial on how to make the blanket. It is a beautiful work of crochet art and we bet it is warm, too.
Don’t you love, too, how it is so colorful!
It’s called a “Wool Eater Blanket”. Benita gave this link to a YouTube tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edVGSzaGhKc.
One of the nice things about social media is that we help each other out. Sandy, one of our readers, also commented and gave this link for another source of instructions: http://sarahlondon.wordpress.com/2009/08/25/wool-eater-instructions/
We’re sure there are other sources for the pattern and instructions on how to make it. We just know that it is beautiful! Thanks to everyone who has helped us discover “wool-eaters”.
