Exciting times here since I have almost finished my granny stripe blanket! Well I say almost because I still have to do the edging and I have no idea how long that will take me but I’m excited to see most of the blanket finished.
I didn’t have an exact size or measurements in mind for this blanket so just kept working on it till I thought it was long enough…..and as I was starting to run out of a few colours like the teal.
For the edging I’ve found two ideas and am tossing up which one to go with. Firstly Attic 24 does a lovely one here and another lovely one is on the new to me blog ‘Crocheting and Knitting the Day Away’ here. Both pretty don’t you think? I’m thinking of doing pale pink, yellow, cream and the blush (hot pink/coral) for my edging.
If you’re inspired to start a granny stripe blanket then do it…the first few rows were the trickiest and then you’re off. The pattern is here just remember to use the correct US or UK terminology as what she calls a treble crochet I call a double crochet.
I used lots of Bendigo Cotton 8 ply from the stash and am really happy with the result…..so are the girls who are already claiming it as theirs.
