Originally I was going to make Lucy's at Attic 24 Granny Stripe blanket. I even bought the yarn pack to do it. However BG saw a blanket made up of small granny squares and wanted that. I then showed her Bunny Mummy's Large Granny Square Blanket and she was happy with that.
I used the Stylecraft Special DK Colour Pack from Deramores which is based on Lucy's blanket. There are 17 different shades of colour. I have to say not all of them were my cup of tea and next time I will choose my own colours but as a beginner it was good to have a pack I could just use.
I used a 4.5mm hook and I did two rounds of each colours and then a border of DC with three different blues.
BG choose the order the colours went in and colours for the border.
I am really happy with the way it turned out. Its not perfect there are some mistakes but that adds to the charm.
I started it on the 26th August and finished it in the 2nd October so it took 5 weeks which I am really impressed with.
I can't wait for BG to get home from school so she can see the finished blanket.
Now what to make next!
