Our new cat had started sneaking onto the spare bed for a nap, so I wanted something quick and washable to cover the bed linen. What better solution than a granny blanket!
But this is no ordinary granny blanket: the centre uses my favourite diamond pattern, which is also used in the joining and in the edging. I used 12 different colours of yarn, with most in my chosen accent colour, red. You may choose whatever colour scheme you like.
The pattern is written in English and US crochet terms and is charted. It also includes a schematic for the colour scheme and photographs to help you with joining, and some ideas on variations.
The pattern was written for Red Heart Detroit. A substitute yarn is shown below.
