Finished! Greengate Blanket

I'm on a roll with finishing projects lately! We won't talk about the one's I have started though :)

This one has to be my proudest finished projects. I can't believe I actually finished it. Way back in August when I started it, I said to myself why am I making this I'm never gonna finish it. But here you go in less than a year it is finally done and it's a whopper! It measures about 68 inches wide by 96 inches. Definitely the biggest thing I've ever crocheted and probably ever will. I am so in love with it and it fits so perfectly on my bed.

The pattern can be found here. It is in Swedish but with google translate and a little crochet knowledge its easy to figure out. Or to make it simple, it's just a series of straight double crochet rows and granny stripes, if you wanna make your own just mix them up.

Since we sadly can't get GreenGate products here in the US I dub this blanket my first ever GreenGate!

Hope you all have a fab weekend!

  32. I love it! I'm a crocheter too and can appreciate how much time that took. what yarn did you use for it?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Beautiful, and the colors and pattern are perfect! I made a lap size tribute to Carh Kidston a few years back. What brand of yarn did you use?
    And why is it that GreenGate won't come to the states? So frustrating.

  38. Nice plaid. I especially like the way your bed is placed under the window.
    Really cosy!

  39. Hello! I'm wanting to make a bed-spread like this, and am wondering how much of each yarn did you use? The google translate site says, for example, 20 "balls" of blue. How does a "ball" translate to a skein? Thank you!

    1. Hi there! I'm not 100% sure how much yarn I used, but I think it was about 4 to 5 skeins of each color :)
