Mila Cosy Stripe Blanket
"Whether you’re an experienced crocheter or just starting out, this crochet blanket pattern is designed to guide you through the process. Worked in the Alpine stitch, the finished blanket has a lovely heavy and luxurious weight, making it the perfect companion for chilly nights and winter snuggles! Choosing your favourite color combination allows for a personalized touch. You can match your cosy stripe blanket to your home décor, create a thoughtful gift for someone special, match the colors to your favourite sports team or simply express your own style through your crocheting. Three different sizes of crochet hooks are used to maintain tension – the foundation row uses 6mm, the Alpine stitch uses 5mm and the border, 4.5mm. I’ve kept the border simple for this alpine stitch blanket because the colour sequences and the stitch itself is the ‘star of the show.’ This cosy stripe blanket is written in UK and US Crochet Terms"
