A Completed Crochet Project

As you know, during the summer school vacation I worked on a crocheted bedspread for our queen size bed. I soon had the required number of granny squares which I joined to form rows.

These rows were soon joined to one another. The blanket quickly became big and heavy. To avoid getting hot, I placed the work next to me so that I would not get too uncomfortable.

My last decision was to decide on how to work the border. Deciding to continue with the granny square motif, I alternated the colours of my choice.

For the last row, I tried a curved edge. I liked the look of it, and decided to stay with my first choice.

Once the last stitch had been made and the final piece of thread worked away, I carried the work to my bedroom and laid it on my bed.

My family and I admired the result – my daughters called the blanket cosy. The room has a different look to it now. Now when the cooler days arrive, my husband and I will have something warm with which to cover ourselvest.

Have you completed a project during the summer/winter? What was it?

  1. Congratulations!!! You did it 🙂 😀 If I drop by your place one cold night can I borrow it? 😉 Seriously, Colline, this looks impeccable and lovely and it will come very handy. Thank you for this post – we can even say it was “within my theme” – a bedroom makeover 🙂

    1. It is the beginning of one Paula. I am revamping our room bit by bit – and I began with this bedspread. It is surprising how much that one little change can affect the look in the room.

  2. Super, dear Colline, you did a wonderful work. I loved it. You can put on bed some little pillows but made cotton lace or tulle… I imagine like that… 🙂 Thanks and Love, nia
