Remember last week, I told you I was making something from this?
Well, I’m all finished! Here’s the end result:
Here’s the link to my Rav page with the pattern details. Basically its a huge crochet granny square using double crochet.
I was using up stashed yarn I’ve had for a while, a shopping bag full of unknown weight and fibre, so I just kept going until I ran out of yarn. I was hoping I would have enough to make a blanket for my bed, but sadly no. It measures 1.2m x 1.2m so its still a pretty decent size.
While I was channelling my inner-Nanna I decided to stay on the crochet path and try out a pin I saw on Pinterest last week.
I had a big piece of woven fabric that I was going to bind with ribbon to turn into a proper blanket, but I thought this was a better idea. I used leftover yarn from my February Lady Sweater (which I haven’t shown you yet – its not quite cold enough here to get away with wearing a wollen cardigan!), and the whole thing took about two hours. The link has a great photo tutorial, very easy to follow.
I’m well and truly set for winter!
And, for my next project…
