I´ve been creating so many things for other children than my own lately, so I decided it was time to make something for my boys. My older one loves Icelandic wool - he want´s to cover himself with it, swim in it, dig in it... he loves everything about it, even the smell :-) So.... why not make him a crochet blanket of his own, big enough to wrap all around himself?
I decided to use the traditional granny square pattern for this blanket. What I like about this blanket is the simplicity&at the same time "happiness" of the colors. It only took me 1 week to make it since each square only has 2 colors.
I didn´t make an edging because I want to be able to add some rows around it when he grows...
hook: nr. 7
material: icelandic unspun, 2 strands (tvöfaldur plötulopi). I mainly used wool from my stash.
Do you recognize the system behind the color-arrangement?
