I started to crochet with this yarn, which is Bernat Blanket Breezy Yarn. I had bought some at Joann's on clearance. I immediately abandoned the crochet hook and picked up some knitting needles. I was initially going to make a shawl. I ended up casting on 70 stitches and just did the stockinette stitch. I got so say, the yarn is super soft. Since I do have a grandchild on the way, I decided to just make a baby blanket. The colors are could work for either a boy or girl, since I do not know the sex of the child yet.
I did end up doing a crochet edge and did a chain of 20 for the fringe. One ball was enough to make the blanket and I had some left over.
