I was really impressed with how quick this blanket worked up.
This pattern was the Corner-to-Corner Granny Square by Blossom Crochet. The YouTube video tutorial can be found on Blossom Crochet’s channel here. I did two rows of each colour in a repeating order of White, Lincoln, Grey, Pale Rose and Grape, until the end where there was one final row of White. I absolutely loved this pattern and the tutorial was super-easy to follow. I love the way that the blanket is lovely and square with perfect corners and straight lines.
I used Stylecraft Special DK (100% Acrylic) in colours White, Grey, Lincoln, Pale Rose and Grape (1 skein each).
I used a border that was outlined by The Patchwork Heart. I used the White yarn for the border. This was two rows of treble crochet followed by a row of double crochet, chain 3, double crochet in same stitch, skip stitch then repeat in next stitch (all UK terms).
The finished blanket is approximately 72cm x 72cm.
