By chance, I found this wonderful website, Attic24, and was so inspired by all the amazing projects that I just had to have a go myself. I decided to attempt the cosy blanket so off I went to the wool shop and returned with a bag full of colourful yarn, eager to start work. It was the first crocheting that I had done for years but I confess it is now definitely my favourite craft! I started the throw just before Christmas 2014 and it has kept my fingers busy through the winter months. I found it very therapeutic; row after row, stopping to select the next colour and then off again. (It was also easy to do whilst watching TV.) I admit I am now totally hooked on crochet!
The pattern is simple. Two rows of trebles, change colour and two rows of treble clusters……and repeat again and again!
It just kept on growing! I made it slightly smaller than the pattern as I wanted a ‘throw’ for snuggling, not a blanket for a bed. However, I was reluctant to finish as I was enjoying it so much. Eventually I stopped and chose 4 of my favourite colours to make the edging.
The only problem is that Rosie is rather keen on it too!
