I've been working on this for a long time--years, in fact--and I hope to have it completely done soon. My mother's 90th birthday is next year and I think she'd like this for a room she has decorated with clowns. (It has a red leather couch!) All I have to do is weave in some ends (been doing that a little at a time) and add the rest of the border. It's just double crochets, one round of each color in the blanket.
