Yay! Well done!!

Yeah. DC is different in Us and UK so if you can't figure out if a Brit or American has written it then sometimes it takes a bit of figuring out.

My big blanket takes ages to see any progress on so it gets a bit tedious so I decided to do a quick granny square blanket in the headband colours.

Done 7 squares so far. Going to get it to 9 and then just go round the edge a few times until its big enough just to pop over her car seat etc in summer.

Think im going to crochet a blanket, but like in stripes??? if thats at all possible, i like the crochet on the headband its fairly easy to do, but would it be good to do for a big blanket???

or do you know of a good easy pattern to do a nice blanket with?

Do granny squares. Soooo easy.

And knits up so quick.

Honestly it's just groups of 3 DCs. It was the first thing I ever crocheted!

That should help. It's easier than the flower you did. I promise.

And the perfect weight for our spring/summer girlies.

This is my Granny Square blanket:



And the other blanket I've been doing for a while. I sort of come back and forth to it as its pretty slow to knit up.

Fab thread poppy!
I love the booties and blankies!
I only know how to knit right now, hoping to wrap up my knotting projects and learn to crochet next month. Here are the projects I want to do next:
