crochet blanket

A few months ago I taught myself how to crochet by watching videos on you tube. I am the first to admit I am a beginner .......

My first attempt was a granny stripe blanket looked good but due to me reading the pattern wrong ended up half the size it was meant to be. So it now hangs on the back of my craft chair

Then I made a bag ...

Then I made this blanket after seeing the pattern on
