Cozy and comfy in Silver Slate

Win for last night!  What’s that you say?  Whose team won?  What was the score? What is the prize?

Calm down!  Let me explain.  The prize is a finished cozy and comfy knitted comforter in Silver Slate.  Finished size 68 x 66 inches.  This project took several weeks to complete.  The pattern is quite simple–the entire blanket is done in a garter stitch.  I used five skeins of Bernat Blanket and worked it on a pair of circular needles. Once the main part was done, I used a solid gray to crochet a two-row edging.  img_0941

The first row of the edging is single crochet stitches and four single crochet stitches at each corner.  The second row is a single crochet, chain 2, single crochet.  This is repeated and between the single crochet posts, there is a space of one single crochet.  See picture below to get a visual of this.

Because of the bulkiness of the yarn, you cannot see a clear distinction of the single crochet space.  It was critical otherwise the effect would be quite different.  The effect I wanted was simple and sleek.
