Baby Granny Stripe Blanket


Woooohooooo!!!  I have finally finished my teeny tiny granny stripe blanket (when I should have actually been finishing this one - whoops). 


I love finishing a project - especially when it is for someone special, as this one is.  Now, if only I can finish one of the other million projects I have on the go...

This blanket was started on our family holiday a few weeks ago, and nearly finished while watching the Royal Wedding last week (because everyone knows that the Royal family are totally into crochet... or was it Croquet?).

Loving the grey and white stripes on this one.  Once again, I used this pattern for my edging and love it. 


In keeping with tradition, the classic 'here's my finished blanket' pose.

  1. This is really lovely - well done. Love the grey and white combo. I've used Lucy's pattern too before to make a ginormous rug for my son. Her instructions are just so easy to follow.

  16. I LOVE! I have been trying to learn to crochet for a few months now and seem to be doing not so well. I just get so confused and waste hours on the internet looking for 'how to crochet' and it still doesn't help. I love your funky style you bring to crochet and I want some too lol!
