rainbow star blankets

I decided to whip up a couple of baby blankets just to have on stand by. Does anyone else get slightly mad when their partner or family member just casually decides to tell you they need a baby blanket for their work friend? Happened so much last year, I’m prepared this time. These blankets will look familiar to a few if you’ve followed me fr a while now. Just the 12 point ripple pattern by the crochet crowd and my favourite yarn from Woolly and Warm. I made these a lot smaller than the original as they are meant for babies or young children who don’t need such a bulky blanket.
Love how these turn out and will try to make a few more to stock my Etsy store which i have been neglecting.

In Progress: Rainbow Hexagon Blanket

I’m trying to now buy anymore yarn for a while and use up what i have. I have a lot. Like too much. So I’m trying all sorts of stash busting patterns. I made a hexagon blanket a few months back and loved the result so i thought i’d give it another go. I decided to make rainbow centres and do the final round in white to make the rainbow colours shine. Continue reading In Progress: Rainbow Hexagon Blanket

Finished: English Rose Blanket

I’m in love with the Call the Midwife blanket. Obsessed. It’s the sweetest baby blanket and lends itself well to all sorts of colours and yarns. This pattern is relatively easy to do and after a few rows it just repeats. Ideal for those Netflix and Crochet marathons. I found a bunch of soft yarn at my local craft store and practically brought all the colours. Over the next few months I’ll be making a bunch of these blankets to sell on Etsy.

The first one finished is the pink one. Love this so much. This is prefect for a stroller sized blanket and is soft and feminine.

I started this blanket months ago and sort of lost track of it. I then started a corner to corner in the same yarn to see which looked better, they both did! After weeks of trying to figure out which one to undo I decided to just buy more yarn and finish both. Naturally there wasn’t enough yarn at the store! After visiting two different stores I figured the other colours were similar enough to pass off. So I grabbed two balls of two colours and got to work.

I love how easy this pattern is. The first few rounds are a bit tricky cause you’ve got to count and swap which yarn you are working on, but after that it’s awesome!

The blanket turned out giant! I love all the different colours and you can’t even tell there are three different colour versions of the yarn used! All up this took 8 balls of wool.

After months and months of delaying this blanket due to heat I have finally finished! I dyed the wool using my technique which you can find here. The unique nature of each ball of wool plus the spiral pattern of the blanket creates something totally random and awesome! I added a fringe because fringes are cool haha

All up I used about 16 balls of 50g wool for the centre and 3.5 for the Continue reading Finished: Spiral Blanket 2
