Pin Stripe Blanket

A new, custom couch was purchased for the "man cave". Lovely, soft greys and blacks. Of course, it needed a new throw in the same colors.

I love the soft variegated look! Masculine and soft at the same time.

Really easy project with terrific results! 61" L x 44" W

I used my Grey Gardens Baby Blanket (below) pattern for this project.  If you purchase the pattern, or if you already have my pattern, just send me a note and I will be glad to give you the specifics (
yarn colors and amounts, size, edging etc.) on how to make this one.  

I always add my label, Creative Design on one side and my web address on the other side,  and "made with love" charm to every piece of knitwear whether it is for sale, a gift or an item I keep for ourselves.  The labels come from a lovely Etsy shop.  Owner Sasha is a jewel and you can find her here

The silver charms are ever so sweet and a real bargain!  36 charms for $7.50 and she even tossed in a few extra!  Find Hope here

Have a great week,


  1. I really love how masculine the colorway you've chosen is! My husband complains how "girly" a lot of things I crochet or knit is...this one wouldn't get any complaints! Stopping by from Someday Crafts.

    Just a pointer, if you want more comments, turn off the Captcha... :-)

  2. Rachel, thank you for the note and kind words! Great it goes! :)


  3. Thanks for the tip on the labels from the Etsy shop. I've been thinking of doing a label or a tag and haven't pursued it, but I can now. Great blanket in super manly colors! Visiting from the Yarn Along.
