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.

Farmhouse Granny Crochet Blanket.
Free Pattern: Bundle handmade on Ravelry
Skill Level Medium- intermediate
Yarn: Bonus Hayfield chunky 100g from wool warehouse (£1.85 a good price) I made 24 squares. I bought 20 balls and had 2 left over for the border.
Hook: 6 mm (UK) for a looser gauge I could also have used a 7 mm (UK)
Stitches. Chain, dc(UK) or SC (US) puff stitch and treble (UK) or double crochet (US)
Time taken : about 28 hours, OR 2 hours each evening whilst watching TV!
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…
