  • Size: 27 inches diagonal

  • Colors: Burgundy, Fiesta Jewel (Red Heart Super Saver)

  • Pattern: Round Wheel Lap Blanket - Design by Cheryl Lambert

  • Hook: G, H

  • Date: start April 14; finish May 3

Modeled after a Round Color Wheel blanket / rug pattern I saw on eBay (the 4th photo above) and found intriguing. By looking at the photo of the Round Color Wheel pattern, I was able to guesstimate how it was made and created my own version of the blanket using just 2 colors instead of switching colors every few rows. I quickly got bored with it and decided to stop after it was big enough to cover my knees (which are frequently cold and ache).

[Update June 3, 2008] I decided to make it larger by adding two more bands for better knee coverage. I've taken notes on how I made this and will post them on this blog when I've gotten around to typing instructions out.

I know it's been a long time since you posted this, but did you ever get around to writing your pattern for this lap blanket? I do a knit one that has 16 panels in it but thought this crocheted one was unusual.

Hi, Pepsi - I don't check email often so I'm just now getting to your message.

I haven't crocheted at all for over a year and a half. I did take handwritten notes as I was creating it, but they were far from readable - even for me. I don't know where they are now.
