picnic blanket is finished!

.

nice to see you here!

the picnic blanket is finished and it looks a bit different than i envisioned. 

 

i had the blocks crocheted together with white yarn but i became loopy when i saw the result…

i have ripped the white and tried it with a soft pink hue.

again ripped it and also tried a piece with a gray purple tint…the result was bluh.

then i crocheted two strips together with the anthracite colored yarn, but the blanket then looked very unfriendly and a picnic blanket should not look like it wants to bite your butt – to my opinion. then i sewed the blocks together but i did not like it and have everything disconnected.

.

finally i did manage to crochet the blocks neatly together and to make an edge around the blanket.

still no spring
here in the netherlands it is still no spring weather and much too cold for a picnic. therefore these pictures in my living room, i hope you like them.
 
in the coming time i will make a tutorial, though … would you like to have a tutorial for this blanket? please, let me know if you do?
 
 
wish you a wonderful weekend!
