Hook: Started with 5.5mm but switched to 8mm
The upstairs room needed something to "tie it all together" and I needed to bust down my stash.
7 yarns. 7 stitch repeat. As far as how many I cast on, I just counted out 7 stitches over and over until I had the length I wanted. I originally thought I was going to repeat the colors in sequence but clearly I've chosen to alternate and reverse the colors and I threw an extra white stripe in between the grey. It's actually fairly long. Hope I have enough yarn! Might end up with a lapghan.
UPDATE: Soooo... I am frogging the original. I decided to go with horizontal stripes rather than vertical. I was hoping the ends of the yarn could just be fringe but I think the blanket will look better the other direction. This also means the dimensions have to change, so "rip it". Plus, I changed to a bigger hook. The single crochet was a bit dense as a blanket. It was coming out more rug than blanket.
