This Christmas crochet blanket in granny ripple stitch is going to be a beautiful present for your loved ones, for a baby’s first Christmas or for a Mom-to-be. Spread some Christmas cheer and love for handmade gifts with my Crochet Blanket “Christmas Present”!

This blanket features a crochet granny square that has been transformed into a little crochet gift parcel complete with a cute little crochet ribbon & bow, which you can also make on its own without joining it into the blanket and turn it into alovely crochet Christmas tree decoration or you can also hang it on your door handle for a festive touch. Or make a matching set of both!

The pattern is worked in chevron/ granny ripple crochet stitch with adapted granny squares joined in at the top and bottom of the blanket edges. The adapted granny squares feature a gift parcel look complete with criss-cross crochet ribbons and bows in the middle.

Yarn I used: Stylecraft Special DK (3/ Light) yarn in White (3x 100g skeins), Green (1x 100g skein), Kelly Green (1x 100g skein), Grass Green (1x 100g skein), Saffron (1x 100g skein), Fiesta (1x 100g skein), Bright Pink (1x 100g skein), Lipstick (1x 100g skein), Turqoise (1x 100g skein) and Lapis (1x 100g skein). There is some leftover yarn for your matching granny square Christmas decorations too.
