LILY Crochet Blanket/Afghan
Lily is named after my mother; she died in 2007 so this blanket was made as a tribute to her.
Although she was a seamstress she also knitted and crocheted, she loved colour so I used as many bright colours as I could find, I’m sure she would of loved the blanket.
Lily measures approx. 40 x 55 ins, (232 motifs)
(15 rows wide, alternate rows of 15 & 16 long).
Lily is a scrap blanket and best made with oddments from you stash in as many different colours as possible.
