This cosy, snuggly lap blanket is perfect for keeping your legs or shoulders warm, but is a good size to carry in the car with you or throw in a bag. It’s really easy and soothing to make for crocheters of all skill-levels, and the stripes are a great opportunity to play with colour.

The updated version of it is designed to be kept simple and use two 50g balls of each colour of Milburn DK, plus one ball of the edging colour.

1 x 50g ball of Wicker
