Here is the pattern for our popular sock yarn granny stripe blanket, orginially inspired by Attic 24’s Cosy Stripe Blanket but worked in blocks of colour to take advantage of the colour changing features of sock yarn. This has the added benefit of reducing the number of ends that you need to sew in!
I’ve used a mix of fast-changing and slow-changing shades – in this case Drops Delight and Drops Fabel – to give a varied look. In total I used 10 x 50g of Drops Fabel and 9 x 50g of Drops Delight. If using different sock yarns you will need 200g of colour A and 150g each of colours B – F. If you want to use more than 6 colours each 7 row block uses approximately 30g of yarn and there are 25 blocks in total. You will also need extra for the border.
This is a good project to crochet in front of the TV as it has a simple, repetitive pattern. The only stitches used are chain, double crochet (US single), treble crochet (US double) so is suitable for beginners/improvers.
