A few months ago I picked out my favourite colours
to make a blanket for me!
Yes for me ... most of my makes are given away
so its time to update my blanket stash here at Patchwork House
with some of my favourite colours!
This Colour Recipe is proving to be so very popular
and you can buy it as a colour pack
turquoise with lipstick, spring green, fondant,
sherbet, pomegranate, aspen, raspberry and lime.
My making began originally with granny squares
joined with a turquoise background
using the continuous join as you go method
This was delightful but time consuming with all the ends!
I have written 4 tutorials for your use
and kept these squares as my teaching samples
Joining from the front
Joining from the back
Continuous join as you go
You will find these all on the tutorials page.
The colour pack contains
4 turquoise for the background and 1 each of the others.
This will be ample to make a large throw for snuggling on the sofa
or a large cover for a bed.
So it was time to start again
as I am determined to have a turquoise blanket in my life!
This time I am making a hexie blanket
using a pattern from the book Granny Squares by Sue Pinner.
I make all the middles first
then add the 2nd rounds
next I lay them out in a suitable arrangement
and join with the continuous join as you go method.
This pattern is so quick as the flowers only have 2 rounds
and the joining is so easy!
My blanket will be hexagonal with a wavy edge.
It will be a snuggle blanket for relaxing on the sofa
As you can see its already in use
as I hook this cold June morning!
If you have been inspired by my colour recipes
and have made blankets using them
you may be interested in a new
I have started.
This is a place for my followers to show off their blankets.
I am so excited with its popularity
and we are seeing wonderful crochet from all around the world.
It's quite amazing how the same colours look in different patterns
and really inspiring to see people interpretations.
So don't forget to join and share
I'm so interested to see what you make with my Colour Recipes!
Wishing you all a happy hooky Sunday
