The Yarn

For this blanket, I used a worsted weight yarn from a local craft store but I would recommend using Vanna’s Choice by Lion Brand to achieve the same results as shown.

You will need about 1500 yards of yarn to make the same size blanket as written below.

  1. Could you give multiples of The Elise? Also in future patterns please so designs can be made larger or smaller. Thank you.

    1. Hi! Any Chain # will work for this blanket since it is worked in single crochets. 🙂 Happy Crocheting.
