All of the Lush Life Blankets are made with Bernat Blanket Yarn. This yarn is so soft and thick compared to most yarns. I have found it to be one of the best brands I have ever worked with. The Family Room Throw can be made with either the Bernat Blanket Yarn or the Lion Brand Yarn. I like both. The Bernat is softer, but the Lion Brand is thicker and gives a denser look to the pattern.
I will have a very hard time parting with any of these blankets. It’s kind of crazy how it feels like each blanket becomes a part of you after spending so many hours on it. I am currently making one for myself, because I like the pattern and style of the Lush Life Blanket so much. It has a very thick and luxurious feel that I’ve never seen in my other crochet projects over the years.
As an Arizona Cardinals fan, I am also working on two different Family Room Throws (one with each yarn brand) in the Cardinal colors. I love the idea of doing sporting team colors with this pattern. You choose the # of colors, as well as the colors, and I can crochet your blanket in 3-4 days. One of these blankets made with school colors would be a great gift for a graduate going off to college.
