I started my One A Day Blanket right back on the first day of the year. My aim was to crochet one square each day and join them as I went along, a joining technique I hadn't tried before. I really enjoyed the laid back approach to making this blanket, one square each day is so achievable.
It's made up of 192 squares, 12 X 16, so on the 11th of July, the 192nd day of the year, the blanket was complete. All I had to do then was crochet the border. I put the blanket to one side while we went on holiday, I needed a more portable project to take with me, and then when I got home, I concentrated on Daniel's Ripple Blanket as I wanted that to be finished to take with him to university.
The border didn't take long, it's just five rows of granny clusters, but I'm happy with how it finishes the blanket off.
I love this blanket, it's a real hotch potch of colours. I had the yarn, Stylecraft Special DK, bought for me for Christmas so I didn't choose the colours myself, but they're such jolly, happy colours.
It's been finished at just the right time, the cooler weather will be here before we know it and I have a lovely, squishy blanket to snuggle up in.
