The “Dijon” Blanket is finished and I’m so very happy with the way it turned out – I’m afraid I’m going to bombard you with photos!
As you can read here, it was quite the struggle to get it started, but once I had things figured out, it was pretty much plain sailing.
A lot of crochet hours went into this plain sailing, but hours well spent – I truly enjoyed the ride. The beautiful texture of this stitch/pattern makes sure this (baby or lap) blanket is really comfy and warm.
I tried some different things for the border, but decided this strong geometric pattern asked for an absolutely non-frilly finishing touch. So just one row in sc (US) with the charcoal yarn it is.
While working on this blanket, I was wondering whether you too crochet things in a color combination that you’ve really fallen for, but know beforehand that it’s not going to fit into your home decor …….
For me, the love of a certain color combo and the idea I have in my head pretty much always make me go ahead and make the project.
It’s a good thing there’s friends and family to gift handmade things too, and of course there’s my Etsy shop, in which this beauty is already listed.
I’m almost too embarrased to admit it, but I’ve already picked out new colors to start another one …….
Should you want to give this pattern a go as well, here‘s where you’ll find the tutorial!
