As the editor of Crochet Today magazine, I commission crocheters across the country to design blankets for our readers: baby blankets, granny square blankets, holiday blankets, you get the picture. Lately, I've been spotting crocheted blankets pop up on design blogs (and AT's own house tours) and love how sweet they look in a modern and whimsical setting. Who knows, these might inspire you to pick up a hook, a pattern, and some colorful yarn (grannies are pretty easy for beginners), or you might want to seek one out during the final weeks of summer fleas. They make great birth and birthday gifts and add a bit of homemade charm to any kid's room. Plus, they're practical too!
