Crochet Blanket

As mentioned in a previous post I am making another crochet blanket for Sent with love .

This is a lion Brand Pattern  – Magnolia Afghan for chunky wool but it can be made in any weight.
I’m using Stylecraft chunky (black), Stylecraft Phases (cerise and grey)

I’m making a lap blanket so have used 3 x motif for my blanket.

I found that creating the 4 corners pieces was easier if you didn’t make a separate piece, but instead of making the starting chain I double crocheted the required amount of stitches across the corner. to finish I double crochet  the remaining two sides of the corner triangle.

As I wanted the blanket a little wider than the 3 motifs I added some extra rows on the edges.
