Bobble Bedspread

As big as a bedspread, cozy and warm, this blanket is a dream to crochet. This is a great stashbuster project — you can use all those half-used balls of worsted weight yarn to create a very colourful throw, or get all new colours to match whatever room you plan to put it in. I've used a bobble technique that creates a soft bobble for a more comfortable feel, and the texture adds a great twist to the classic striped blanket.

Size: One size, to fit a queen size bed.

Materials: Approximately 3750 m of worsted-weight yarn, any colours (3500 m for bobble stripes and 250 m for optional border), I used yarn from my stash to crochet this blanket.

Gauge: Approximately 1-1/4" per bobble, both height and width.

Other Materials: None.

Hook Size: 5.5 mm hook (or size needed to obtain gauge).
