99 squares single crocheted together (right sides together so little ridges on the back of the blanket) with a few alternating rows of trebles and doubles for edging. I could’ve gone on going around and around for a long time but it felt time to stop!
Choosing where to put each colour was quite a fun process and involved me crawling around the floor moving squares while S called out “move that yellow one left…. NO…to the right of the purple one I mean…now put the purple at the top….and the orange needs to go down a row…” We then looked at it for a day or so until it really was getting difficult to move around it without the risk of spilling coffee (the horror!) I decided it was ok, took a photo on my iPhone and then used that as a reference when I crocheted the squares together.
9 x 11 squares
Blanket measures: 110cm x 140cm ish
Yarn: Stylecraft Special DK
This is a surprisingly heavy weight and cosy blanket when you’re snuggled underneath it.
The light’s not so good at the moment as we have very grey skies and rainy weather so sorry about the darkish photos!
Looks gorgeous! and very snuggly. Did the colour placement take ages?
It really does look like a paint box. Lovely.
Oh, this is stunning! Well done you!
It’s fabulous! You have the patience of a saint . . . I have always had trouble seeing a thing through that has to be pieced together like that.
Exquisite. And pinnable :-)
Oooh that looks lovely. Just what’s needed now that the colder weather is invading our lives :)
It’s gorgeous! I love the colour combination and the white between. Well done you.
So beautiful! I love everything about it. How do you like the Stylecraft Special DK yarn? I’ve never used it (I guess because in the US I haven’t seen it at all), but I hear good things about it.
ooh that is really lovely and paintbox is a great way to describe it. Gorgeous!! Well done!
