I finished Miss M's stripy crochet blanket over the weekend! I loved making this, it was so enjoyable and luckily Miss M really likes it too, she says the stripes are "happy" hence the name. I agree...it is a happy blanket!
For this blanket I was totally inspired by lovely Heather and a similar one she made here. Thank you for the inspiration Heather! The stripes are worked using half treble stitch and I did two rows of each colour with a single row of white in between the colours. The border is a round of double crochet and then my usual shell border which I always use, from Nicki Trench's book Cute & Easy Baby Clothes. It measures 120cm x 120cm and seems to be a good cosy size for my best girl.
One of the best things about this blanket was that it was made entirely with yarn from my stash...and if I'm completely honest, a little yarn from my mums stash too when I had run out of one or two colours!
Now I have the dilemma which I am always faced with when I've just finished a big project....what to crochet next?!
