I've been working on this blanket for a few months, it's a house warming present for my best friend and her husband.
I used the free granny stripe blanket pattern from the blog Attic 24. It was lovely to make.
I started with a 180 chain (instead of the recommended 240 chain) because I wanted it to be a good size for my friend and her hubbie to be able to snuggle under on the sofa, but not too big to take in my luggage when I visit them (next week!) (They live in Brazil and I live in the UK!) but it turned out quite huge and as you can see is nearly double bed sized! I used DK yarn and a 4mm hook. I'm working on making my yarn stash smaller and this blanket helped to eat up 7 balls of yarn. Yey!
