When I first saw this granny stripe blanket pattern on Attic 24 I just had to make one. I love rainbow colours but I knew it wouldn’t really fit anywhere in my house. However, I then thought of the perfect person to receive the blanket!

So I started this for my niece before she was born in August but it took me a little longer than planned and I just had it ready for her Christening last week!

The pattern was so simple to work and it crochets up quickly – you could get it done a lot quicker than me if you have some time to crochet every day! It is also great in this cold weather because you can use it to keep your legs warm while you’re working on it. I might make another one just to keep me warn through the winter!

Thankfully, my sister loved the blanket and I hope it will be keeping Florence warm in this freezing weather.
