This beautiful traditional crochet blanket is an heirloom for sure. Make it in any dk weight yarn - use your scraps of acrylic to bust your stash, or treat yourself to some soft and squishy merino.
The name came from the fact that this has taken me YEARS to make, with long periods languishing in a box under my bed collecting dust!!
This pattern is a comprehensive guide for making this traditional crochet blanket. The pattern includes the written instructions, chart and links to video and photo aids.
The blanket measures 170cm x 170cm but you can make more or less granny squares to create the size you want, and adjusting the border is easy too!
Have fun choosing your colours. Use lots of vibrant colours, or play down with a more muted vibe. Pastels would look super pretty too!
