crochet love {lap blanket}

My Granny broke her hip a couple months ago and it has been a rough, painful recovery.
Luckily, she is so strong and her recovery is progressing!
She is now spending long hours in her living room chair, so I thought I’d make her a little lap blanket to keep her warm while she reads and does her daily crossword puzzle!
I used Red Heart’s Weekend Throw crochet pattern as my basis.
It is an easy pattern to follow and it only took a couple rows before I had the pattern memorized.
I love it when I don’t have to keep referring back to the pattern for every row!
I decided not to crochet a border around the entire blanket,
but rather a little scalloped edge on the sides, just for something a little different.
I love how it turned out!
I can’t wait to give it to my Granny 
(hopefully she doesn’t read this before I give it to her!…hey Granny!)

Have you tried any good crochet blanket patterns lately?
Which one should I try next!?
