stripe crochet blanket

I started working on a new crochet blanket a couple of weeks ago after finishing my crochet rainbow blanket and loving it so much.

This one is distinctly “boy” colours – navy blue, lime green and bone. My son, also known as Mr Happy, is already asking for this one to be his – and I don’t think he has ever claimed one of my projects before!

The pattern is the same as the rainbow blanket but with only 3 colours. I am randomly deciding the order of colours and width of bands as I go long. When I feel like a change, I change colour again.

So this is what I am currently working on at swimming lessons, soccer practice, dance lessons and in front of the TV.

Some details for those that like to know:

  • 8ply acrylic yarn called Thorobred from Spotlight
  • 100g balls – so far I’ve used 3
  • Size 4.5 hook
  • 153 stitches wide

    I have bought some of the Thorobred yarn to take on holidays to make another rainbow blanket. I am 90% through my first one.
