The warmer weather is coming, but there’s still a nip in the air, so it’s time to crochet a cool blanket that will keep you cosy without overheating. Cotton is fabulous for spring and summer blankets – and there are so many fabulous cotton and cotton blends that come in rainbows of colours in 4ply, DK and aran weights.  Make up in your favourite acrylic yarn – easy to wash and dry, and great value too!
