Mum’s Christmas block stitch blanket.

In September I decided a crocheted blanket would keep mum a bit warmer, she’s always cold. I found a fairly simple block stitch pattern that I could work on at bedtime, the end result is based on a pattern by Emma Leith that was in Simply Crochet magazine issue 61.

I am trying to stash bust, so I used yarn I had already. This is Aran weight with 30% wool and a mixture of Marriners and Aldi. 

Mum’s cat approved, mum loves the blanket too.

I really love the bobble border.

Getting a photo at home proved tricky, as soon as I set the shot up a dog appeared and claimed the blanket.
