Granny Stripe Blanket - the purl bee - beautiful blanket and the site has goregous yarn colors
All too often I hear people saying "this isn't your granny's crochet" or disparagingly calling something handmade "granny" to mean that it's unstylish, ugly or fussy. I personally think this is unfair to our collective Grannies, women who made so many beautiful things that still inspire us today. I made this bed sized Granny Stripe blanket with the hope of showing that Granny Style can indeed be a thing of beauty. I think this blanket is both modern and elegant, especially with its playful color note which for me harkens back to the fun and funky crocheted blankets made by many of our grandmothers. The Granny Stripe is a crochet pattern that is made just like the iconic Granny Square, but instead of stitching around and around a center square, it is made by stitching back and forth in rows. The beauty of the Granny Stripe pattern is how effortlessly it lends itself to graphic elements, like bright stripes or big blocks of color. For my Granny Stripe blanket I used the incomparable Madeline Tosh, Tosh Merino Light. As I worked on the blanket I fell madly in love with this yarn, it is an amazingly strong but delicate single ply beauty. Tosh Merino Light comes in an astonishing range of gorgeous hand dyed color, and truly any one of them (or any dozen!) would make an incredible Granny Stripe blanket. Above are a handful of colors I really love and considered for the blanket, the off white is Antler, the top stripe is Edison Bulb (both used in my blanket), then Citrus, Napoli, Oceana and Denim. --Joelle
Granny stripe blanket from the PurlBee. Purl Soho is one of my favorite yarn shops and their blog has a lot of project ideas. But alas, this blanket is a crochet pattern. Another reason for me to learn...

How to make perfect Blankets and Lap Duvet's courtesy of Molly's Sketchbook and the Purl bee's craft blog. I really like this one. Pin leads you back to directions! She calls for wool batting, but I use the Natural Batting instead because I am allergic to wool. Still it is all good! :-) http://www.purlbee.com/lap-duvet/
