Aww, another crocheted blanket.
But this one was a special request from my daughter Nicole who wanted a bright red blanket. Her colour choice surprised me. Purple is her fav not red.
She loves to wind down at the end of the day and enjoy some solitude. Once her rumbustious little girl is in bed for the night Nicole can cuddled up with her blanket and watch a “grown up” show on the television.
This blanket was quick and easy. A beginner could definitely make one of these and in their favorite colour.
Once you get into the swing of it, crocheting the basic granny square can be completed quite fast. Plus the bigger the squares, the less joins which means less time finishing.
Hope you enjoy. Give it a try.
