I love these colours, I think they look like gems when separated with the cream yarn.
It is a really simple design using 7 colours.
I used Stylecraft Special DK (100% acrylic) in the following colours:
Cream 3 x 100g
Grape 1 x 100g
Pale Rose 1 x 100g
Pistachio 1 x 100g
Meadow 1 x 100g
Cloud Blue 1 x 100g
Denim 1 x 100g
You can purchase Stylecraft Special DK yarn from here.
I used a 3.5mm hook (4mm is recommended on the yarn).
The pattern is basically a traditional granny square (I have described elsewhere on my blog how to make these).
The colour order I used was: cream, pale rose, cream, grape, cream, pistachio, cream, meadow, cream, cloud blue, cream, denim…….and repeated this for a total of 52 rows.
I finished on a row of grape.
For the border I continued with the grape colour and worked a row of half treble crochet (UK terms). I then finished off with a row of double crochet in pale rose.
The finished blanket measure 108cm x 108cm.
