After completing my giant granny blanket last month, I couldn't wait to start another! Miss M had requested a snuggly blanket of her own and I was happy to oblige! I loved making this for her, and mostly worked on it in the evenings whilst catching up on some tv (mainly Broadchurch and The Great British Sewing Bee, I have loved both of these...)
I was told that the blanket had to be mostly pink and now that it is finished, it's proud new owner has declared that it be called "The Pink Sweetie Blanket"! And I must admit that the colours are very similar to the little bowl of sweeties above...
It's not a very big blanket, well it's child sized and just the right size for Miss M to cuddle under. She does love to cuddle under a cosy blanket whenever we watch a DVD together.
I used a 4mm crochet hook and again used my favourite Stylecraft Special DK yarn (the colours this yarn comes in are just wonderful). I used 3 balls of shade 1080 pale rose, 1 ball of shade 1061 plum and one ball of shade 1083 pomegranate.
I am now desperate to begin another blanket and am planning a red one for the living room, however first I have lots of other projects to finish - my decopatch project, gran's cross stitch, a new baby gift and cushions for a friend at work. I have told myself that I must finish these first before I buy new yarn for another blanket but we shall see...!!
