Finished: Valentines Blanket

IMG_2390

Words cannot describe how much I love this blanket. The photos don’t do it justice. I used the wool I dyed using food colouring so there is a real hippy vibe to it. I wasn’t sure about the various colours when I started to make this and seriously thought about frogging it and starting something else. But I continued. It wasn’t till I was finished and I took a look at the completed blanket that I realised how unique and beautiful it actually is. I used a 7mm hook and my fave corner to corner pattern. One of the befits of this pattern is when you only have a limited number of balls of wool. Simple divide in half and use of half to increase and one to decrease.
