Vintage crocheted blanket

This is possibly one of the most lovely crocheted blankets that I’ve ever seen – and I’ve seen some pretty fantastic blankets over the years! Not only did the lady who made this have a great eye for colour, but she was a master craftsman with a very neat stitch and excellent taste in wool – after all these years the blanket is still nice and soft! Some of the wool has gone a bit fluffy from use (but not crazy fluffy!), and at some point the blanket must have developed a hole or two because somebody’s done a pretty shoddy patch job in a few spots, but luckily it’s large enough that you don’t really notice the wear.

An excellent quality crocheted blanket that would look wonderful on the end of a queen-sized bed.

Dimensions: 240cm long x 170cm wide
