A Crocheted Throw Blanket

Today, I am sharing a crocheted throw blanket I made my niece for her
40th birthday. I'm pleased to say she loved it.

My plan was for her to start using it late September/October time, when the
weather starts getting cooler, but she's told me that she's used it already,!

I adapted the pattern which I used HERE to make the Infinity scarf.
The pattern consists of just the V Stitch. 

I first decided how wide I wanted the throw to be, and then crocheted rows
of the same stitch.

I finished it by adding a small border of double and treble crochet stitches
and then wrapped it with a pretty crocheted blanket tie. 

I purchased the yarn online from The CheapShop, Tiptree, Essex.
I used eight 100g balls of Stylecraft Special DK in the colour ‘Spearmint’
