Crocheted Mixed-Stitch Stripey Blanket

IMG_2607One thing I love to do to stay cozy in the winter months is crochet.  I’ve been working on a crocheted mixed-stitch blanket ala Little Woollie.  Mine is shown here, with modeling help from Lil’ Pupper who loves crocheted blankets.  He likes to get under them and then stick his nose and teeth through the holes, wrestling and growling like he’s a scary monster.

Anyway, I really like and was especially enamored with her mixed-stitch stripey blanket.  It’s kind of free form, and you know, I love free-form anything.  I really want to add some Catherine Wheels, but I’ve been feeling lazy and just doing EASY stitches.  I have to say, I think I love lazy-easy more than I love Catherine Wheels.  Well, that’s me, at least that’s me now.  Who knows maybe I’ll feel adventurous and complicated tomorrow.IMG_2299

  1. I love this! I came back to look at it twice… thinking, “I simply cannot start another project right now!”… hmm… maybe I CAN? I haven’t crocheted in a million years, but my grandmother taught me well when I was a teenager. I still have her little book of stitch descriptions; it’s very dated with 1970’s appeal, but the stitches themselves never go out of style. I love the Mexican blanket look you have here. You’ve got me thinking!
