It’s time to go back to the roots

Therefore let’s explore the granny stripes blanket, as it is one of the most classic patterns out there. Indeed, most of us have seen them at our own grandma’s house, or in some place where the styling is vey retro. Of course, you can modernise them and match your home, but this is a true timeless pattern. However, we will show you some variants of this, so that you can choose which way to take your project. Nevertheless, these are super fun and possibly quite modern-looking patterns that will be appreciated by your own kids and grandkids in the years to come.

To begin with, here is a real classic that would be so welcome in any boho or retro setting. Overall, this is a great pattern for using up yarn ends, as there is just no need to make large patches in any single color. Moreover, a simple, straight black border gives it that finished and designed look.
