This was a test and turned out to be a small lap blanket. It is actually made from yarn that you would normally use for dish cloths. I loved the color so much I had to play with. It is made up from single, double and triple crochet; half-double and popcorn stitches. The yarn is Sugar'n'Cream Stripes, called Natural Stripe. It is easy to handle and I recommend it for a beginner.
