Blanket Round Up 1

Although last year was a bit of a nightmare for me what with one thing and another, I still found time to crochet and as I've said before, it's kept me sane what would we do without it, I have lots of friend that don't do any handcrafts at all and that's fine everyone is different but I can't help but think that they are missing out.  Anyway last year was definitely the year of the blanket, I haven't counted how many I made but there are a few which I didn't share so I thought I would show you over the next few weeks, it may inspire you to make them too..
The first was the Last dance on the beach Blanket which I started way back here and I did manage to share a lot of the squares as I made them but not the finished blanket so here it is....



I managed to finish this just before Christmas and I gifted it to my son, I had it spread out on his bed when he arrived home. 



He loved it and said it kept him cosy and warm. He's working in Qatar now so it's adorning his bed just waiting for him for when he has a holiday at home.  I really love this blanket and the way it turned out, I enjoyed making all of the squares and loved the fact that there is a video tutorial for each just in case you get stuck.

You can find the patterns for all of the squares and links to the video tutorials here.

  1. It's lovely Linda. I'm sure hand made blankets keep you much warmer than bought ones.
    I sometimes get a lull where I lose my crafting mojo but it's never very long until it returns. X

  2. Linda it looks so cozy on the bed. That must have been a nice surprise for your son. I love the patchwork look it has. Crocheting is so therapeutic and productive at the same time.
