Christmas blanket

I finished my Christmas blanket at last - as a WIP, it was around for a long time. 

I used the sumptuous and squishy Debbie Bliss Rialto DK in white (001), claret (063), vintage pink (066) and willow (059) with a 4 mm hook.  

As for the pattern - easy, just traditional granny squares, five rounds, join-as-you-go.  I like to keep things fairly simple so, as you can see, it's the same colour sequence for each square. There are 108 squares in total and it measures approx. 110 x 148 cm. 

For the border I just did one row of treble clusters all the way round, followed by one row of double crochet and one row of picot (UK terms).  

As I always like to have a blanket WIP I have already started another.  I've gone for hexies this time.

Hope all is well out there ...

  2. Looks lovely Jane both of them. I am looking forward to getting back into my hooky its very tactile and I can pick it up and put it down although more often than not it is always on the go. Never done hexies before might have to give them a go. Pattypanxx
