Circle Lap-ghan



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.

  1. Thanks for sharing. I am going to try this with the odd single skeins of baby yarn I have. It looks quick which is what I need because I have a two-week old niece and my first grandbaby is due any day. Gotta get going.

  2. Thanks for sharing. This would be a really great gift for a person in a nursing home. It would keep their legs warm in a wheel chair or to be put around their shoulders. I will be making this for our charity!
