Serendipity Crochet Granny Square Blanket

Photographs of my newest creation, I do have to say I love the colours. I’d recently had a customer who wasn’t wholly clear on the colour scheme for her blanket. I decided to make up a sample incorporating some of the colours she wanted. Ultimately she decided she wanted a purple and grey ripple blanket. I decided to continue with these colours I had put together and ended up with ‘Serendipity’.
