The Violet Blanket

The Violet Blanket has been a labour of love, that I have been working at on and off for the past two years, and I finally finished it last week. I started it the first summer that I lived in the USA and whenever I found myself looking for something to do, I would crochet a square. 240 squares and several months later, I had crocheted as many squares as I needed. However, soon after, I started a new job and then moved back to the UK, so the poor squares sat waiting to be sewn together for months. Once my craft things from the UK got delivered to Lincolnshire, I picked up my crochet hook and finally the blanket was completed.

I was absolutely thrilled with the outcome. The blanket is made up of granny squares, in a mix of pink, blue, teal, purple and cream, and has a grey and cream scalloped border.  It measures 60″ by 55″ and has a nice heavy feel to it, perfect for snuggling under on the sofa. Each of the granny squares I hand-crocheted myself, then crocheted together and finally, added the border.

It was my mother-in-law who suggested the name ‘The Violet Blanket’ because of the purple. I loved the suggestion and think it suits the blanket perfectly, so that’s what it’s called. I look forward to making the next one!

It’s for sale and available here.
