Crochet solid granny blanket


Happy Bank Holiday Monday folks! I would of had a few more bits to share but my rainbow hat I was starting had to be frogged abit and so I threw it down and started this blanket.

I bought some Caron simply soft a few months back in dark County blue and light country blue as the mid blue tone I wanted was sold out, so I had make do with the light. I had no idea what pattern I was going to do until I thought of granny squares.

Now I like a good old granny blanket, especially In 70s style colours but this time I wanted something more closed for when I sit and read (and for winter.) so I went with the solid granny square.

It has a much more cleaner and modern look to it and so I want most of it to be in the dark blue, with a tiny of light and then right at the end I do another row of light and then blue.

Problem is, I don’t like the light blue. So I’m going have to re-evaluate my lighter colour. Thankfully the shade I wanted originally is in stock, so I might order it. But I was thinking what about a row of mustard?

Idk something about the light blue doesnt mix with my palette even though blue is my favourite colour. I would perhaps do another version of this blanket in light blue with a tiny of grey. So one for each sofa.

What do you guys think? Let me know of any shades that might go with my darker blue. It’s only for one row.

I hope all is well, catching up with ya’ll soon!

  1. I love the idea of mustard with dark blue, I think yellow and blue are great colours together! I like blue and grey too, I think they go well together but maybe use a light grey to go with the light blue?
