These crochet blankets are still making a regular appearance in interiors magazines and on style blogs, I'm glad to say. At one time, I amassed a huge collection of them, but I've since whittled this down to a pink version and a green one. I am always looking for them when I'm out on a vintage hunt, but it's rare to spot one with truly great colours.
I like this blog http://www.woodwoolstool.blogspot.com/ which gives the blankets a new twist. Somehow, they always look a little bit more glamorous and desirable in a Scandi or Dutch interior, I don't know why this is.
