We have just returned from our holidays.  On the last day I managed to finish a project I'd started during our previous holiday.  It's a crochet blanket made with Victorian Lattice Squares (design by Destany Wymore).

I bought a packet (10 balls) of the green wool with which I made 30 squares.  The blanket was not quite big enough for my liking and I didn't have any more of the green (and it was no longer available) so I decided to make a wide border.  I chose a very contrasting plum/purple for the decorative edge.  It's not quite a "violent" a purple as the sunshiny photos would suggest but a bright colour nonetheless.

It looked really pretty hanging on the washing line...

I like the effect of the light colours of the sandy ground behind
showing through the design on the photo below.

It measures approximately 1.65m x 1.30m

I don't know why but I really enjoy making crochet blankets.  I always find it very satisfying to complete a larger project like that.

Best wishes,


  1. That is very beautiful, you do such perfect work and fantastic color combinations again 😄💟😄

  2. Love the colors and your corners are perfect. Bravo!!

  3. So lovely! I like your contrasting edging. I"m enjoying making crochet blankets too.

  4. Evan when you crochet, you make lace! It's gorgeous! If you're like me, you like to crochet /knit, because after a short amount of time, you have something substantial, instead of something the size of a quarter! For me, it's a pleasant change.

    1. Yes, you're right, it's a good point!

  5. That is so beautiful and I really love the design!!! :)

  6. Es ist eine wunderschöne Farbkombinationen. Ich liebedienerisch Farben.
