Lapghan Blanket

Snuggle up with this large solid shell stitch lapghan blanket.

You can mix up different colors to make a bright and cheerful one or use warm
Autumn colors.

There is nothing better on a cold evening than to put your feet up and relax with
a warm blanket around you, I have crocheted it in a close stitch for extra warmth
and on a large hook so it grows faster.
