To see the history of this blanket please click on the granny zig zag label. The blanket is about 5' x 3' and I've used stash wool mostly from car boots or charity shops. The wools are all different - acrylic, mohair, wool so washing it should be fun.
The pattern is in one of my other posts and was very easy once I'd counted the first chain and done the first row. It was easy stress busting, mind numbing work.
I like the stripes of little white flowers between the colours.
The edge is a single crochet followed by half doubles (US terms).
It's not staying on the couch or chair. At the moment it's just a spare lap blanket. As usual while crocheting ideas come into my head as to what to do next - (there's already 3 WIPs). Angela has just crocheted a granny blanket and is using it for a lap blanket and also as a cushion so that gave me the idea of granny cushion covers to contain the lap blankets.
I may use my granny rose squares, (click on the granny rose label for more information), or I may decide on something else. Who knows? Such excitement!!!
