The crocheting is complete on my Marled Crochet Blanket. Thanks to binging some knitting podcasts and a glass of white wine…this monstrosity is complete. And as I feared yesterday, it still looks like a giant boob.
I turned this project in for points in the Pigskin Party KAL and promptly set it aside. My completely inept and total made up crochet increases made this blanket bubble in the middle in the red section. I texted some photos to crafty friends as to what I should do with this.
One friend suggested I stuff it and make a pillow or lounge pad. But as its square-ish and the gauge is really open I’m positive it would be impossible to seam and the stuff would just spill out. So I have two choices:
- Just throw in the towel and let my kids have this as a “play” blanket for their stuffies and dolls
- Call my seamstress mother to see if we could sew up custom pillow or fabric bean bag like item and then attach this to the top for humorous effect.
I’m going to mull my options and see how crazy wild I get this winter. This project may resurface….
What? No mention of tassels?? I have always wanted a low prayer bench that I could use with a large stuffed floor pillow. I think this would be lovely stitched to the top. Maybe the fabric below could be a contrasting floral. I don’t know. I see it in my head and it sounds so lovely!! (my poor head…)
😂 your description is hilarious, and you are a good sport!
Well I can’t un-see it now you’ve said it :p
