Colour makes my heart sing!
I describe myself as a crochet artist
but if you look at my crochet its all very simple . . .
its the colour combinations that excite me!
This colour palette for my turquoise granny square blanket
is so beautiful. I designed it with myself in mind planning a
granny square blanket with a turquoise background for my own home.
The granny squares I made earlier
were made up into samples for my workshops
and I've decided to keep these for future inspiration.
You can read the tutorials by following the links here
So I've stared again!
I've had a longing for a blanket with a turquoise background for a while now!
This time its going to be made with my new love
If you missed my post a few weeks ago
you can read about my first 2 hexie blankets
I am using a pattern from the lovely book
Granny Squares by one of my favourite crochet designers
This week I've been making batches of the 2 round flowers
which will form the middles of the hexagons
I am always being asked about how I find
all the colour combinations for the flowers!
This is the part I love, I guess have a Mathematical brain helps!
I will write a blog post about this soon to help you all out!
I'm varying my work
with some flowers
then some joining
and I've adapted the
to work for my hexagons
Its really coming on fast as this join is so easy
and I am so delighted with the turquoise background.
It is everything I wanted and really makes the flowers pop!
I am delighted to tell you all
that I am now working with the lovely people at Deramores
and they have begun selling my colour packs!
So if you fancy a gorgeous turquoise blanket
you can buy this colour recipe
I'd love to see your makes in these colours!
