This little lap-blanket is crocheted as a full circle, using a large hook with 2 strands of yarn held together. It’s fast and easy, and the big stitches give it lots of loft and a relaxed drape. It works well as an around-the-shoulders wrap, too. This makes a great prayer shawl.

This is my all-time favorite yarn. It's nice to work with, has the warmth of wool, and the washability of acrylic. It is machine washable and dryable. I love to use it for gifts, because it's so easy to care for. And it comes in lots of great colors.
