Finished: Retro Blanket

IMG_3875

I finished this retro inspired blanket last week. Inspired by googling photos of those awesome crochet blankets I set out and brought some yarn. The burnt orange, mustard, deep maroon, cream, bottle green, and petrol blue really made this blanket come together! The pattern is a simple granny stripe which works up fast.
I used two balls of wool per colour, but only 1 for the blue. I’m not sure if I should add a border to this one or leave it. Possibly a grey or brown to keep the retro vibe alive. I haven’t had a granny blanket for a while, but I’ll be sure to make them in future!
