A Lap-ghan

It's FO Friday, and I'm back! My last few FOs haven't made it to the blog... not enough hours in the day. But it's high time for some fiber-blogging.

This little lap-blanket was an experiment. It's a big crocheted circle, made with a US size Q hook and 2 strands of worsted weight yarn held together. So it works up real fast. This also gives it lots of loft and a relaxed drape. Love it.

The best part (suggested by my good friend, Alice) is that it can be worn as a wrap.

This is a prototype that I designed on the fly, and I have just put the pattern together as a free download. It's fast and easy, and a great stash-buster.

  1. That worked out nicely. I tend to do the same thing- design on the fly. Then someone wants the pattern and I'm like, "Uh...Okay, well I single crocheted to here, then I did front post double crochet for 2 rows..."

  2. I would love this pattern, I need this lap-ghan for church. my email address is Thanks so much, I just stumbled on your site and is now one of my favorites. deena in cajun land

  3. Oooooh, I do prayer shawls, and that would be perfect! Could I get the pattern from you?

  4. I will be happy to write up the instructions for you both. I'm so glad you like it! Give me a few days, and I will post it here on the blog.

  5. Hi, I want to let everyone know that I just put the pattern up on Ravelry as a free download. You can find it here on the blog, in the right hand column, as "Circle Lap-ghan."
