The lap blanket I posted about here is finished!

I used a 5mm crochet hook and 8 ply acrylic yarn double to do the coloured squares, and then crocheted around them in a single strand of 12 ply acrylic (still using the 5mm hook). After sewing up the blanket I crocheted an edge around it using a 3.5mm hook and cream 4 ply nylon yarn used double.

You can see the edging a little better in this photo:

It was a good way to use up some of my left over bits and pieces of yarn :o)


  1. Oh Lynda... it is lovely! What a treasure you have created :-)'


  2. What a beautiful blanket, so special to have been created with your hands.
    Warm wishes, Tonya

  3. Thank you for your kind comments Maria and Tonya. I'm extra pleased with it because it was made using scraps and so was very economical.
