A Crochet Ta-Daa!!!

In the spirit of Lucy, at Attic24, heres my first crocheted blanket/throw!!!


It's the Granny Stripe Blanket. It was pretty simple, as long as you know how to chain stitch, double & treble crochet, you are good to go!! Its not as bright & colourful as Lucy's, but I have found a company that sells the exact wool that Lucy used as a set, so thats on my wish list.

My blanket is set to live on my sofa, although the other sofa is now feeling jealous!! Im thinking of granny squares (if I can ever master them!!) for it?

The edging is granny square trebles all around the edge.

The wool is cheap acrylic, as I didnt want to use expensive wool for my 1st project in case it was a disaster!! I have to say though, that apart from the brown, which was really 'squeaky', it was a dream to work with.
