Candy Cane Christams blanket and matching cushion
There can be nothing cosier than a warm, soft Christmas blanket to snuggle up with on a cold Winter’s day, and with it’s colourful candy canes and bright red pompoms this matching blanket and cushion set will have you feeling festive in no time at all.
The pattern for the blanket and cushion is perfect for all crochet abilities as the only two stitches used are dc (UK terms) and chain. The blanket is worked in rows of dc and the candy canes, rather than being worked in rounds, are simply small crocheted rectangles in dc, which are then rolled up and stitched in to place, with the stripe being created by wrapping a length of chain stitch around the cane. The candy canes and snowflakes are then stitched in to place on to the finished blanket. It really is as simple as that !
I used PAINTBOX Wool Mix Aran for the main part of my blanket but PAINTBOX Simply Aran could also be used for a cheaper option.
The pattern is written in UK terms.
