Blankets have been and probably always will be one of my favorite things to crochet. One of my all time favorite blankets is my Mabel Blanket. I loved the simplicity of the granny squares and the unique assembly of it. Today I’m so excited to introduce you to Mabel’s spunky little sister, Winnie! The Winnie Blanket is constructed of 59 hexagons and 8 trapezoids to create the perfect accessory for any home. The simple color changes create a unique design when all pieces are assembled. The modular construction make it easy to take this blanket on the go.

When deciding which yarns to use I knew I wanted one of the colors to be mustard yellow. I have a thing for mustard and my favorite shade is definitely Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice. Lion Brand was kind enough to provide the yarn for this project and the mustard and white is the perfect combination.
