Crochet Notes - Summer Garden Picnic Blanket - The End

Here is the finished picnic blanket with fleecy backing attached - but before you see it in full here is the final journey.

15 x 13 round.

So only the two ends this time - 13 each end, meaning that the square becomes a rectangle of 13 by 15. This enables the picnic blanket to fit its fleecy backing blanket.

The border was a very simple affair - two trebles, 1 chain etc, with 3 trebles 3 chain on the corners.

Then it was simply a case of sewing the fleecy backing to the crocheted fabric.

And finally the picnic blanket is finished:)

The fleecy backing makes it feel quite luxurious. 

All I need now is a picnic basket, some lovely salad and bottle of wine:)

Packed ready for the beach or the country park. 

I was worried it would be too big for the bag but it fits perfectly.


  1. Absolutely wonderful. All you need now is a BIG improvement in the weather. I'm sure you'll be able to enjoy using the blanket soon.

  2. It looks gorgeous. The White sets off all the bright colours beautifully.

    I am back out from under the last breakdown, so will be keeping an eye out on your lovely makes again.



I really appreciate it if you can take time to comment - I love to read other people's thoughts and ideas.
Take care x
