rainbow granny stripe


My Mum recently finished a Granny Stripe blanket and it is so pretty I just have to share!

Mums Rainbow Granny Stripe

She used the same 17 ‘Lucy’ pack of Stylecraft Special DK colours that I used for my Granny Stripe blanket, except she arranged them in a rainbow order, repeating this pattern across the length.

It’s so bright and incredibly cheery! We were surprised at how different it looks to mine, even though the same colours were used in both. It just goes to show what can be done by playing around with colour!

Mum and Dad’s poor chookies thought they were going to get fed while I was taking these photos!

      Thank you Ingrid, it’s finding a new home in Mum and Dad’s caravan to keep them warm on their travels!

    It really is cheery, isn’t it? I keep mine on the back of the sofa (with all the others…) for anyone to grab when they feel like snuggling up in front of a good film.

      That’s where mine lives too, it’s such a great size for a sofa and brightens the room instantly :-)

    Love a crochet blanket myself, you and your mum have created such wonderfully sunny and perfectly stitched loveliness.
    Nice to see a sunny picture-so dull and rainy in the UK this weekend.

      Thank you! We’re nearing the end of winter here but have had rather sunny weather lately which has been nice!

    Wow, what a difference color makes! I can hardly believe you two used the same ones. <3
