Annie's Blanket

For my friend Annie...on her 55th Birthday!

I loved making her this blanket!  
I didn't have to many color changes,
which means fewer end to sew in...that makes me VERY happy!

I love the white outline of each square.

small, but not too small.

a very simple edging...one row of single crochet, followed by a chain 4 skip one row...
don't know what that is called, but I like it.

A smallish blanket, perfect to throw in their camper and head out. Lightweight, soft.

I love the whole process of making a blanket for someone...picking out colors, deciding on patterns and needle sizes,  big squares or little squares, borders...knowing that this person will (hopefully) love it as much as I do.


I used Caron Simply Soft:
Soft Mint

Size 4.5 hook

  1. Love this! Often simple ones are the best. And less colour changes and ends to see is a bonus! :)
