Blue Canvas Blanket

(Crochet * Stash-buster)



The Blue Canvas blanket is all finished…all 108 squares and border!
La frazada “Lienzo Azul” ya está terminada… los 108 cuadros con el borde.




It is a gift for my niece.  She is going to set it on the foot of her bed; but, if extended, it covers the whole bed (queen size).
Es un regalo especial para una sobrina, para ponerlo al pie de su cama, y extendida cubre toda la cama.



The motif is a modified version of the “Sunburst”, which I also used for a cushion not long ago (check: “Study Cushion” for a graphic chart and more information).
El motif es una versión modificada del “Sunburst”, el cual también usé para un cojín (visiten: “Cojín del Estudio” para ver la gráfica y más información).


I joined the squares with simple crochet stitches.  To avoid the join from being too bulky, I actually made: *1sc+ch1* (skipping a st with every chain).
Los cuadros están unidos con punto bajo, alternado con una cadena, para evitar una unión abultada.



My niece wanted the border to be simple, very simple…and all in blue. So I continued with a few rows of granny stripes, and then a final row of hdc.  To close up the border, I used slip stitch all around.   
Mi sobrina quería un borde simple…así que seguí con la puntada granny, y terminé con una pasada de hdc (semi-punto alto) y al final, punto deslizado. 



This is a truly stash-buster project.  All yarn was from my stash, except for the navy blue for the background and one extra cream.
Este proyecto lo hice prácticamente con lana acumulada; sólo tuve que comprar la lana azul del fondo y una de color crema.



Call me crazy…but I am SO tempted to make another one (maybe for a baby girl)…
No crean que estoy loca…pero tengo ganas de hacer otra (tal vez para bebé)…
