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.
Another spiral done! This one also took months to make as it was also made with wool. It’s sooo heavy! I used the same pattern for the 4 colour spiral blanket, but used two solid and 2 multicolored yarns. I wasn’t sure if this would look any good, but in the end I loved the Continue reading Finished: Blue Spiral→
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
It’s done! I love this blanket so much! Such a simple blanket to make but the yarn really makes it. I used a 7mm hook with Colours of Love yarn to create the bulky boho feeling. I added a fringe to the edge instead of leaving it plain. I love how soft the yarn feels and how the Continue reading Finished: Boho Mandala Blanket→

I quickly ordered my pack and started to think about the design. Ripple, granny squares, granny stripe, solid squares, corner to corner. So Continue reading In Progress: Giant Rainbow Blanket→
Another blanket done! This time that yarn is not something I would usually choose, but after finishing this I really love the effect. I used my trusty 5mm hook and my forever-favourite Ice Yarn to make this. I’ve had some extra time over the christmas break so have been taking advantage of this and making a heap of blankets for my market stall. Continue reading Finished: Bright Baby Blanket→
I found this amazing yarn at my local craft store. It’s white with metallic silver thread running throughout it, so unique and perfect for a baby blanket. I find the corner to corner pattern easy, quick, and very suitable for a blanket intended for a baby. This yarn was
I’ve just finished this lovely pink and purple baby blanket! The yarn is from Ice Yarns and in a style called Dancing Baby and is 100% acrylic and soft. I love how bright the colours are and how they crochet up. This pattern is corner to corner which gives the great diagonal line effect across the blanket. To finish I did a different border than Continue reading Finished: Pink Baby Blanket→
