As much as I love a hand knit blanket, a crocheted one is often a quicker reward. If you’re looking for a modern, cotton blanket for the bedroom, this beautiful one from Purl Soho may fit the bill. You may have to brush up on some crochet skills. A twist on the classic crochet “granny square”, this blanket is made in a neutral palette, imparted with a stripe detail in a contrasting hue. The yarn used is a fine weight cotton that will keep you cool, so you can get some Z’s on a hot summer night.
