Crochet Corner to Corner Blanket

Crochet Corner to Corner Blanket
This throw is started at one corner and beautifully increases and decreases while we change the colours for the stripes. It is quite easy to get our desired length and to follow the instructions of this pattern to crochet this blanket.
