One of my favourite things about crocheting Christmas gifts for family is that I can use those gifts as opportunities to design new, fun projects. When making my gift list for this year I really wanted to make my grandmother a blanket. She loves maroon and has a lot of maroon in her home decor. So the colours were pretty easy to pick. They normally wouldn’t be colours I would choose myself but I am so glad that I used them. I fell in love with the burgundy and whipped cream combo! Now I want one for myself!
Bernat Blanket is my go-to yarn for soft, cozy blankets that work up super quick. The Bernat Blanket Whipped Cream in this texture actually kind of looks like real whipped cream which just makes me happy…and a little hungry but I promise I didn’t consume any of the yarn. Well…not on purpose anyway!
This blanket is a lapghan/baby blanket size and is easy a good blanket for beginners. If you know how to chain, single crochet and double crochet, you can make this blanket. It is so simple but has a beautiful texture.
