I have been playing around with a few different granny square patterns using some lovely coloured King Cole Bamboo cotton I had .
I have been inspired by a great crochet blog MeMeRose .She is making a spring blanket with a lovely pastel colour palette . Having some time off over Easter hols from the usual busy making of the clay variety I had some fun with some crocheting.
I decided to make a large spring blanket of my own .I am using Stylecraft Special which has a good colour range for a more budget wool , as it's going to take alot of wool !!Here are the colours I am using.
I make the coloured centres first then do the white border and join as I go with a method of joining with a slip stitch instead of a chain between each cluster (find this on Attic24 blog).This method is great as the blanket grows as you make rather than all that sewing together at the end!
