I have made my kid brother a CB stadium blanket based on a scarf pattern that I love to use.

Material:
P - crochet hook
yarn needle to weave in ends
6 -skeins of Cleveland Brown LB Hometown USA
2- skeins of Syracuse Orange LB Hometown USA
1- skein of New York White

Tip: Use any color super bulky yarns as long you have 729 yards.

To make an afghan instead of a scarf, begin by chaining 52 instead of 20. Then just follow the scarf pattern instructions, making the afghan the length you want.

Here's how I did the colors - 3 skeins of Brown, 1 skein of Orange, 1 skein of White, 1 skein of Orange, and then 3 skeins of Brown.

Tip: I don't have the measurement of the blanket, because I had to finish it before Christmas. But I do know for sure that every skein make about 5" length. The total of the blanket is 45 inches long.

Oh! don't try to do this blanket in a rush, because it get heavy on your wrist. Take your time and enjoy!!

Go Brown next year!!
Edwin

Is that the seed stitch? If so, I just finished a scarf using that stitch. One of my favorites right now!

Nice Job! :cheer

Thank you, I'm not sure if the stitch is the "seed stitich". The scarf pattern did indicate the name. Their is a link to the scarf pattern, take a look and let me know.
