Easy Peasie Oceanside Blanket

Welcome to the September Craft Room De-Stash Challenge! This month I'm sharing a Bernat Easy Peasie Blanket I made for my father-in-law. My father-in-law requested a blanket to keep him warm during his dialysis treatments. I asked what colors he liked, and he said blue, green, and white. I knew I had a yarn like that in my stash! At first, I was going to crochet the blanket with the corner to corner crochet stitch, but I didn't like the way it looked with this yarn because the color changes happened so quickly. So I searched the Yarnspirations website for a quick and easy pattern, and I found the Bernat Easy Peasie Blanket pattern. 

I worked on this blanket during the Hurricane Dorian evacuation. We live in southern Georgia, and we used the evacuation as an opportunity to visit family in Tennessee. The yarn I used is Bernat Blanket Oceanside. I had six skeins in my stash, and I grabbed them on our way out the door to hit the road. I started working on the blanket while my husband drove.

I crocheted a little at night after everyone went to bed. I was crocheting in my parents' guest room. I used a size L/8mm Clover crochet hook.

I worked on the blanket for about 3 days, and it measures about 56" x 58".  I did have to run to the store to buy another skein of yarn. Luckily, I was able to find a big skein, and it was just the amount I needed to finish the blanket. When I finished, I added a tag. I think the tag matches the blanket perfectly!

I had to take a couple pictures of the blanket in my mom's sun room before gifting the blanket to my father-in-law.

My father-in-law loved the blanket, and I'm so glad! He said the thick yarn is perfect for keeping him warm at the dialysis center, and he even took a nap!
