Glorious Granny Stripe!

As the crochet seems to be going well, I wanted to share with you my glorious granny stripe blanket.

The tutorial for this is available over at attic 24 I would highly recommend doing a small demo type blanket first just so you get the hang of it, the only reason I say this is, if you go ahead into the big blanket and get lost a few stripes through then you will have to go back and start again, this can be most frustrating!

Ok here we go with the pics there are lots!!!

 It covers my rung in the living room, and makes you want to roll on it!

 It covers my 3 seater sofa easily!
 I decided to do a simple edge to my blanket
 Here it is all ready to snuggle under
 Stripes fabulous stripes
And folded ready and waiting to be used.

I used Style Craft DK, Lucy also uses this and it crochets up a treat, its also very warm!  I have used slightly different colours to Lucy I think its nice to use what ever you fancy, in fact I think this would look just as nice in just a couple of colours or maybe in shades of one colour only, the options are endless!

Right must dash catch you all soon!
