Inspired by the awesome retro blankets I’ve seen online recently I decided to make my own. I used Stylecraft yarn which comes in a great range of colours. For the retro feel I choose mustard, deep red, bottle green, an off cream, burnt orange, and a warm blue. Most of the retro blankets I’ve seen are granny squares which annoy me to pieces. After searching around I found a granny stripe pattern. This was great as it works from left to right and its very simple to understand. I’m doing 9 rows of each colour before repeating the pattern but in the opposite way. It’s coming together faster than I though and once you get past those tricky first three rows you almost don’t have to think.
