Another blanket done! This time that yarn is not something I would usually choose, but after finishing this I really love the effect. I used my trusty 5mm hook and my forever-favourite Ice Yarn to make this.

After making the purple version a few months ago I decided to make the blue twin! I used Stylecraft Special DK yarn and my trusty corner to corner pattern by The Crochet Crowd and set to work! As usual I didn’t follow any colour pattern and just made lots and lots of squares. I tried to make the squares have contrasting colours and used the darkest blue and green a lot to give it some boost. I joined the squares together using a different blue colour and the slip stitch technique. And added one row of single crochet of the border to finish it off and make it more secure.
