|Lost my hook so I had to take a mini break |
on this until the hook came out of hiding.

|All the scraps from other blankets. |
A multitude of different stitches, all combined in a very eclectic fashion.
On the Catherine Wheel she does emphasize that one must stitch loosely. I just couldn't seem to adjust well enough that everything didn't seem squeezed and misshapen, so I increased my hook size until it was loose enough and then reverted back when I'd completed the Catherine Wheel rows.
I also used a variety of yarns to stitch this blanket. Most is Red Heart Super Saver, but I did use some of Vanna's Choice yarn, Lion Brand Wool, Caron Eco and a few rows of Bernat Baby yarn. These rows however I tried to use primarily within the half double crochet rows, and adjusted the hook size to keep the gauge with the rest of the blanket.
