An on the sofa and nice cuddle? It's easy with our self-crocheted blanket. Or in other words, it is sooo comfortable that we do not want to get up again. Try it yourself.

That's what you need:

  • Schachenmayr original Sun City, 500 g in natural Fb 00002 (A)
  • 150 g of poppy Fb 00231 (B)
  • 100 g each in pool Fb 00265 (C) and may green Fb 00273 (D)
  • each 50 g in Cyclam Fb 00134 (E) and mottled gray Fb 00192 (F)
  • Milward crochet hook No. 3, 5-4, 5 and 3-4
