Even though I’ve been knitting the Monster Blanket, I’ve done some crocheting too. Here’s one I’ve just finished… Its a twin (single) sized blanket, edged and joined in olive. Made for Cumbrian Country Crafts. Oh, crochet is so much quicker than knitting!
Take a simple textured stitch pattern that looks woven, add some colorful stripes and you’ve got The Basket of Rainbows blanket! It can be worked up in any dimensions you wish and with any number of colors.
