A few weeks ago
I shared with you the delightful willow blocks I was making
Using the pattern from
I set about making 49 of these 6 inch squares
in beautiful shades of Stylecraft Special DK
using a 3.5mm hook
I have used
1 each of claret, copper, spice, gold, mocha,
meadow, teal, plum, grape and raspberry
with 3 dark brown for joining
The pattern was easily memorised
and soon I was making without the book!
Loving the lace pattern
which shows so clearly when the blocks are made in a single colour
I decided on a very simple join ...
working in dark brown I used dc with wrong sides together
as I wanted the join to be minimal allowing the blocks to shine!
then for the border I chose something deep and lacey
which you can buy from Amazon
I am absolutely delighted with this plain blanket
which has been made as a wedding gift.
It was lovely to have the opportunity
to create something new and different
which I know will inspire future orders.
I hope you like it too!
