Pattern: A Little Bit of Chocolate by Diana Lynn Sippel (with modifications)

Inspired by the motif pattern in the original A Little Bit of Chocolate and the color palette (brown, tan, beige), I used a bunch of Caron Sayelle in blue, off white, brown, and white to make this lap blanket to add to my 2005 blanket donations.

The blanket is a little too long for a lapghan, but it would have been off-balance if I hadn't added the last row on the top (or bottom). The original pattern has the motifs whip stitched together, but I chose to use the "sc, ch 1, sk 1, sc" pattern to join the columns and the rows. And, since I didn't have enough white to crochet all columns together, I used the off white for the center so I could use the rest of the white for the border. The border is also one of my modifications to the pattern.
