Granny Stripe crochet blanket

A year ago, I saw this pretty creation on pinterest

Granny Stripe blanket created by Lucy at Attic 24

On April 29 my Bendigo Woollen Mills 8ply cotton yarn arrived

Soft cotton, delicious colours!

My colour inspiration was from Corrie at retro mummy

From memory, my foundation chain was 198

I used a 4mm crochet hook

Once the first few rows were complete 
it was an easy blanket to crochet

This was the first time I had crocheted using cotton

It was so soft to work with and didn't annoy my skin

The pattern is in UK terms!

Use the correct UK or US terminology you are used too

All up it took 11 weeks for me to complete my Granny Stripe crochet blanket

I crocheted most nights and spare moments I had during the day

It measures 169cm x 118cm

Perfect size for snuggling on the lounge with hubby or the kids

I thoroughly enjoyed creating this beautiful crochet blanket

* Inspiration for the border and edging 

* I learnt how to crochet shell border stitch

* Video tutorial ~ crochet shell border stitch

My current 'work in progress' is a blue, white, grey baby blanket!
