What do you think of this?

Isn’t it divine?! The colours, the design, the tassels! This proves once again that you just can’t go wrong with a granny square. It also proves that guys can hook. Yup, the blanket was crocheted by a bloke: Matt of the blog AccordingToMatt.

AccordingToMatt is written by Matt Farci and Dennis Marquez of Hamburg, Germany. The two of them make the most beautiful things and the photos on their blog are absolutely gorgeous. In fact, it was through their Instagram photo feed that I found the blog.

It’s not all crochet though. Dennis has recently gone over to The Dark Side by venturing into the murky waters of knitting. Shock. Horror. However, he’s so good at it that even I will be following his progress.

I really love AccordingToMatt. Not because it’s two guys. No, it’s because the blog is written in such a nice, informal, chat-around-the-kitchentable style and their photos are stunning. Go have a look. There’s a link to AccordingToMatt on my blog roll on the right of this page. You won’t be sorry. Promise!
