Crosses Granny Square Blanket

By PaisleyJade - Tuesday, November 04, 2014

So happy to have finished this awesome blanket - one of my favs!

I love granny square blankets - mainly because you can crochet the granny squares wherever you go without having to lug a giant blanket around with you!  I also really enjoy putting the blanket together at the end, and with this one I put a lot of the crosses together before I started doing the final arrangements.  The worst part of a blanket for me is always the threading in of the ends!  Such a relief when that is done.

I love the fact you could do this same blanket in any colours, or even a black & white or grey & black version would look awesome.

Looking forward to getting on with a few other crafts on my to do list, but this has been such a fun blanket to make.  I'd totally recommend this pattern to anyone, even to crochet newbies!

    Dear Kristy, re your daughter's love of penguins. She might like this year's John Lewis Christmas advert. Here is a link:
    Their adverts are much loved here in the UK. Another one to look for is from 2012. No penguins in that one mind, but a snow man and snow woman. Love the throw you've made. Best wishes, Emma
