I spent most of Christmas making a giant crochet blanket from Attic24’s Granny Stripe pattern – many hours of frantic crocheting, which eventually turned out like this!


I have to confess that I didn’t actually start it at Christmas, the cast-on chain was made in January 2013, but then I didn’t do much over the course of the year. Look at the colours! It’s so warm and cosy and lovely and bright and colourful, a proper snuggly cheering-up blanket.

After finishing the blanket, I had lots of yarn left over – not enough to make a full blanket, but too much to be thrown away. I decided to use Attic24’s ripple pattern to create a rainbow cushion, and here is the finished result! The inner pad is a 12″ feather cushion from John Lewis, and the buttons on the back are vintage finds. My starting chain was 45, and I did 5 repeats of the stripe pattern. It’s lovely and soft, and I still have lots of yarn left! Time to find a motif pattern, I think…
