Impeccable Amethyst- Need at least 3 balls for the blanket (4.5oz balls) I used the purple for an extra round on the baskets and one other place where I was afraid to run out of the color so ended up using 3 whole balls and part of another.   I’d say 4 balls for this if you are using it for the hearts, lace, and border, most crochet looser than me.
