I just finished the most rewarding project. My friend George turned 21 on the tenth and since I could not visit him in Texas I wanted to make his birthday present extra special. Originally it was going to be a beer pong table but I wanted to do something a bit more challenging and something that he would like for a really long time. I haven't given it to him yet because I won't see him again until August so if you happen to know someone named George Huber from Texas please don't tell him about his birthday present. haha
Now without further ado I give you the Dallas Cowboys Birthday Blanket!
Just a few notes:
I use KnitPro because hey!, it's free. The blanket is not a very big one but that's how I wanted it to be. I think it'll fit on his bed as a smaller afghan and it won't be so bad to tote around to football games or a weekend swim meet or something.
I compiled some pictures to show the process of making the blanket. I stayed up until four am on some nights just to get this thing done.
The back of the blanket looked really yucky so I bought some really soft navy colored fleece and attached it to the back. I used a hole punch to make holes and then crochet it in accordingly.
Like I said, I'm super proud of this one because it's my first time using a graph and it certainly won't be my last time doing so. Also, I've never made a shape or letters in a blanket before and I'm so proud about how the whole thing turned out.
