R2D2's Crochet Blanket Journey #1: Why I Am Making My First Pixel Afghan

While I was finishing off my The Art of Crochet Throw – Click To View
My middle child, who is 6, who is obsessed with Star Wars, asked me to make him a blanket, as his younger brother has had one made and so had his older sister. Before anyone thinks I’ve left him out, I haven’t, it’s just I have asked him several times, if he had wanted a blanket and every time, he’s said no!

It wasn’t until a week before Christmas 2017, he eventually came up to me, and asked would I make him a blanket in the new year. So I eventually took to my graph squared paper. I had been deliberating over where or not to try a pixel throw after seeing The Mario Blanket from CrochetedBlankets101 on Instagram.

So I drafted out the photo below, where the green squares are, is actually going to be white. (it was just easier to count the squares!)

So now that I have ordered yarn from The Little Wool Shop online – click here
let’s begin…

Wish me luck!
