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
