Lucky Stripes Blanket
I call this blanket Lucky Stripes because I was lucky to receive a large container of beautiful yarn, just by chance. I was in the hospital get a procedure done and I was talking to the nurse about Project Linus and how much l like to make blankets. The nurse couldn’t believe her luck as she had been driving around for a few days with a Rubbermaid container full of yarn, and she wanted to find someone who could put the yarn to good use. I truly believe that things happen for a reason. 48×52

“A blanket that has arms to hold you when you are sad, now that’s what I call a comforter.”

I started this blanket a few months ago and put it down and got caught up doing other style blankets for Project Linus. I call this the “Magic Blanket” because I wasn’t happy with the colors, until I added the orange and magically I got the pop I was looking for. 50×50 .This is a solid granny square, you can find the free pattern, with excellent instructions at Fiber Flux .

Berry Patch Blanket
I call this blanket the Berry Patch because it reminds me of the colours of summer berries, another corner to corner blanket trimmed with the picot stitch.
This blanket was created by my sister , who happens to be left handed. She completed the blanket in less then ten days.
I had a laugh trying to teach her the corner to corner pattern. Thank goodness for the internet, we found a left handed crochet pattern, demonstrating the pattern easily. Here is a link for right and left handed box stitch to make a corner to corner blanket. 46×46
