Christmas Crochet Blanket
A finished object – woo hoo!
It is done. Finished. Completed. All the ends woven in and everything!
I started this at the end of last year with the last scraps of 2020’s Christmas knits.
Typically, there wasn’t quite enough to finish it in one go, so I waited until now to buy a couple more balls of yarn to finish it off.
It’s not the biggest blanket I’ve ever made, but it’s certainly one of the prettier ones! And so festive!
It’s a simple Granny Square pattern. The old ones are the best!
I really like the colours of this one. But, as I have loads of homemade blankets already, I think I’m going to donate this one to charity somewhere. I’ve already donated to Knit For Peace in the past, so this time I think I’ll have a look at Woolly Hugs.
They send blankets to UK hospitals, both to maternity wards and for older children and teenagers too.
Here is what it looks like as a finished object.
It’s difficult to get an idea of the true size, but I’d say it was just over a metre squared.
I really love it and it’s not immediately obvious that I used two different kinds of red yarn!
