2 Blankets with Granny Stripes

(Crochet)

Granny Stripes are a classic!  I made two blanket versions using granny stripes: one for a boy and one for a girl…
Las franjas granny [lit. de la abuelita] son clásicas.  Estas son dos versiones de mantas usando las franjas granny: una para niño y la otra para niña…





 




The boy version is made with 2-row stripes of the following colors: bright blue, grey, white and light blue. 
For the girl version, I used a lovely multicolored merino yarn (Merino Gold multicolor, Madame Tricote Paris) that has long strands of each color, which made it the easiest color changes ever because it is self-striping.  I love the touch of turquoise mixed with the girly colors: pink and lilac. 

Pattern: Granny-Stripe Baby Blanket @ Maybe Matilda 
(Graphic chart below...)


La versión de niño está hecha con dos hileras de cada color: celeste, gris, blanco y azul brillante. 
Para la versión de niña, utilicé una lana merino multicolor (Merino Gold multicolor, Madame Tricote Paris) con cambios largos de cada color.  Esto hizo que la hechura fuera más fácil pues los colores van cambiando automáticamente, sin tener que cortar para cambiar colores.  Me gusta mucho cómo combina el color turquesa con los clásicos colores de niña: rosado y lila.

  4. Your 2 blankets have turned out really well. I started one of these but my yarn doesn't suit the pattern as it seems to make a big loopy stitch at the top of each cluster of stitches. I'm trying to live with it, but I think I might have to pull it all out.

    1. You really don't know if a yarn is going to work for a project until you try it, right! But I am sure you will find a perfect pattern for it. Good luck, Una :-)

  15. These are just lovely! And the yarn makes it's own stripes of color? I have a daughter of a friend who is expecting her first and I think I will try this pattern! Your newest follower....Terri :-)

  17. El punto clásico granny lleva una cadeneta entre los puntos altos, pero en el caso de una manta, es mejor no hacerla para que no quede demasiado calada.

    1. You will be busy with so many babies in the way :-) I started with 92 ch (but it will depend on what kind of yarn you will use. [ I always make more chains than I will use, because one can always undo the extra ones]

    I love the baby girl blanket!! SO gorgeous - I cannot find the yarn, however. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    1. Yes...it is a yarn from Turkey (and it is unusual that wegot it in our stores!). But you could try using any "sock yarns". There are some with lovely colors (and it is similar to the weight I used). The clue is to get the ones that the color changes are LONG. I hope this helps :-)
