I used Lion Brand Wool Ease Yarn ... for warmth and washability... in green, gold, black, cream, blue and tan... i don't remember the exact names for the colorways. I also dont know how many skeins I used... I am so bad about keeping up with that... although I will say that I spent about $125 on yarn for this project.
It's mostly worked in sc, dc and hdc - - - - - with a P hook (...ha ha ha... she said "P hook!")
It's a very HEAVY blanket... but Sugar Daddy says that it is perfect... and he certainly has used it every day since I made it... so I consider that a successful project!
This blanket gets the Jubal Seal-of-Approval!
