The FOMO blanket

 An awesome granny square (rectangle) retro crochet blanket by CraftyRie.
So last year when I finished a blanket for Laney, Joe got a little jealous .. he had a bit of FOMO going on (Fear Of Missing Out)! So I jumped online and ordered the cheapest yarn cakes that I could find to quickly make him a blanket too ... but big mistake, the yarn was crap, so it slowed me right down!

So I treated it as an 'Slow Project' - a project that I'd pick up every now & then to do. It finally got finished and my Joe is loving it!

So as the yarn I used was crap (unevenly spun, horrible texture, terrible dye job), I'm not going to recommend it, so instead here's a link to some nicer yarn that is similar that will be much better to use.

I crocheted each yarn cake into a rectangle = 6 yarn cakes
Then used an additional 3 yarn cakes to join the rectangles and edge it to hang over his bed.
