Towards the end of last year I made a blanket with the same design and similar colors. That one was a Christmas gift. My husband and I loved it so much that we decided I must make another one.
we changed to brown from gray, and kept the other colors the same. We
went from Super Bulky to Lion's Brand Jiffy Bulky yarn. I used about 20
skeins! It measures about 100"x100". For reference, a quick search on
Google shows that a queen blanket measures 90"x90". I was getting
pretty quick (when I didn't have to pull out a row or two for not
finishing my "v" stitch) that I was getting about 7 rows completed in
about 2 hours, or about a row every 20-30 min or so.
So....it repeats 7 rows blue, 3 rows white, 4 rows brown, 3 rows white, 7 rows blue....... all "v" stitch.
going to apologize in advance for the lighting. When I use flash in my
room, it distorts the color. When I turn the flash off, then the
pictures are dark. I really need to learn the setting on my dslr to help

I've recently been playing with perler beads with my 8 year old daughter, and I've been wanting to make something that was Northern Lights. So...I thought, why not perler bead Northern Lights and winter cabin? This is my first attempt at free-handing and I've only made possibly a handful of these before. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
