Farmhouse Granny Crochet Blanket fresh off my hook!

 

Time is luxury and a luxury is precious, but now we have so much time. Time to read, time to cook, and time to make things. My latest make is a Farmhouse Granny crochet blanket…

Such a pleasure to crochet and a super fast hook up, mainly because the pattern calls for chunky yarn and a size 6mm hook.

Changes I made to the farmhouse granny crochet blanket:

 

I added a simple dc (UK) SC (US) border. after joining all my squares in a 6 x 4 rectangle. I crocheted 5 rounds, with a chain at start of each round to keep it straight.

I did not block the squares, instead I gave the whole blanket a gentle albeit cool wash in the machine, then hung it to dry folded in half over the washing line. It came out perfectly…

Wrapping the blanket around me to watch TV in the evening, then I take it to bed and wrap it around my shoulders to read…it must be my age!
