Need a simple heartfelt last minute gift? Then this is perfect! Want a nice throw for the holidays? Then this is perfect too! The fleece blanket is sold by Rite Aid and is very reasonably priced. And of course, if you are like me, you don't buy anything for the marked price....you wait until it is on sale! These fleece blankets were not only perfect to crochet a border on, but they were a great deal at 50% off!
What makes them even better is the fact that they already came with a stitched edge that was so easy to just start crocheting into and around.
I simply crocheted a single crochet border around all sides, adding a few extra stitches at the corners. This blanket was 2 single crochet rows of cream colored cotton, 2 single crochet rows of green cotton, 1 single crochet row of red, and finaly the last row was 1 single crochet, chain 5, skip 2 and single crochet again. The same pattern was repeated around.
So simple, and really so nice!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Hi there! I'm Kathie, the author behind Creating A Simpler Life. I'm excited to share our longterm projects (and planning) toward building our future retirement homestead in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. In the meantime I will be sharing all the other little things we do that are part of creating our simpler life!
