Two ta-daahs in a month! How exciting!! This morning I stitched in the very last end of my Criss Cross blanket!! Huzzah! I have really enjoyed this blanket, it is only little- a lap size rather than my customary single bed side, but is also quite heavy considering how little it is, and very warm.
The border is made up of 16 rows, and is a combination of double crochet, treble crochet and a double layer spot edging (like the Spot On Edging used by Attic24). The double layer can be given different looks depending on the colour you use on the round after- so for instance I have used it once with dark purple over the pink followed by grey which covers the purple and creates a little dash line, but then on the final rounds the spot is clearer as the outer two rows are in the same colour, if you get what I mean.
The corners will need blocking though to stretch them out, at the moment they curl slightly at the corners which makes them look like little pointy petals.
So, are you ready for the whole blanket?
A little square blanket with criss cross granny squares and a stripey border, all made in the Merry Berry Rooster yarn pack from The Homemakery. Perfect for snuggling under whilst watching something good on the telly.
