WIPs: Crochet Ripple Blanket and Granny Square Cushion
As I haven’t posted about crochet for a little while, I thought I’d share some works in progress with you. First off, I’m working on a small ripple stitch blanket. I started this as I need something to wrap baby small in when she’s in her pushchair and it’s cold. When she’s wearing trousers with tights underneath, it’s not too bad – but if she’s in a dress with tights, I thought she could do with something extra to keep her snug….
The other project I have on the go is a granny square cushion cover. Our sofas are a bit old and tatty now but, as I can’t afford new ones, I thought I’d try to spruce them up a bit by making some new cushion covers and possibly a throw.
The front is just a simple granny square, made to the size of the cushion. I’m not quite sure how I’m going to do the back yet – I could just do another granny square and join with double crochet but I want the cushion cover to be removable (baby small currently has a fascination with felt tip pens so I think its important the cover can be washed!). I’ll probably do a striped piece for the back with an opening half way up. Once I’ve figured out what I’m doing, I’ll try to write up a pattern and post it here.
