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