Vintage Crochet Blanket

crochet blanket white turquoise 1

Ever since we had our own home, I have fallen into the trap of "collecting". Wooden carved animals? Check. Pretty tins? Check. Vintage cake stands? Check. Globes? Check. I need to join "Collector Anonymous."

My latest obsession is the crochet blanket. I love the look of the stitches, the texture and most of all, how it adds a homely look to an otherwise a bland decor of our home. I recently acquired this white blanket with dark aquamarine circles because it matched the colors of our bedroom perfectly.

And more importantly, Dexter likes it because the color matches his eyes.

That is a really nice blanket, gives your room a nice retro touch.

What a lovely blanket! So much so, I've attempted to make it just from the pictures. Which reminds me, thank you for taking a close up shot! :)

I was wondering if you could take a picture of the other side..I am trying to locate this very unique pattern?

what I am wondering is...does the other side look identical to this side or does it have yarn ridges?
