This lap blanket was going to be just blue and gold, but I ran out of enough yarn when it was time to join the squares and crochet a border. So, I did the joining and border using primary colors that matched: green, red, and orange.

  • 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.
