Rainbow Baby Blanket

This week I decided to work with some colour. I was travelling so I wanted something easy to do. I just love these colours. You can find out more about how to make this blanket here.

The patterns is a traditional granny square based on 6 rainbow colours.

My blanket finished 80cm x 80cm but you can adapt to how big or small you want it.

Aqua Chunky Cushion

I love these Stylecraft Chunky yarn colours together and they work up well in cushion cover. The chunky yarn seems to give a beautiful stitch definition and seems to work perfectly with the herringbone half treble stitch.

Find the full pattern here.

This pattern is for a 50cm x 50cm cushion but can easily be adapted to whatever size cushion you desire. It is super simple to make. Suitable for a beginner.

I used a 6mm hook.

Rainbow Granny Squares – joining the squares

This weekend I finished my stacks of pastel rainbow granny squares. I made a total of 30 squares.

My intention was always to join with grey, but I did suddenly wonder whether I should go for white or cream. However I stuck to my original plan – and I am really happy with it.

I am using the ‘join-as-you-go’ joining method.

Hopefully, I will finish joining the squares today and then can get onto the border.

Pastel Rainbow Granny Squares

I mentioned previously that I wanted to use the pastel rainbow colours for a new project – so I played around with these colours, making granny squares

The colours are Stylecraft Special DK: Candyfloss, Apricot, Lemon, Spring Green, Sherbet and Wisteria.

Stack of pink ones finished, now on to the purple ones.

Looking forward to showing you more of this project – I am planning to write this in a bit more detail soon for those who would find this useful.

Using up spare yarn….the pink blanket

Continuing to work on my granny squares, which started off as a project to use up some of my yarn stash.

  • Round 6 of each square was completed using cream.
  • I ended up with a total of 25 squares.
  • Today’s job is to join the squares together.

I am joining the squares using a continuous ‘join-as-you-go’ method, but I am trying to do it differently from before. Instead of going with a slip stitch going under the square, I am trying to join with a slip stitch by going into the square from above. It is taking much longer doing it this way but the work appears much flatter.
