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.

Granny Star

I have been playing around with a few different granny squares, motifs and blocks this week. I have been looking to make a granny star for a while as I love the visual effect. You will be able to find many different patterns and tutorials on the internet for granny squares. Like granny squares, everyone has their own favourite and different ways to make these.

If you are interested in how I have made my granny square please find the written pattern here.

I hope that you find it useful.

Sea Urchin Granny Square Blanket

This week I have been working on this Sea Urchin Granny Square Blanket. Ice Yarns sent me some of their yarn from their Saver range and this is what I came up with. The yarn is lovely to work with – it is soft and there was no splitting or joins. I loved the colours – and the yarn was thicker than I usually work with (it was Aran weight) – it was such a joy to work with that it felt strange going back to my usual double knit.

The written pattern for this blanket is available on the Ice Yarn Designer website here.

Graphite Granny Square

A few days ago I starting making the granny square above. I used Stylecraft Special DK in graphite, white, lincoln and paler rose. You can purchase this yarn here.

When I finished these 10 rows I really did not know what to do next. I was torn between making lots of these smaller granny squares or whether the grow this one into a giant granny square.

I decided to opt for the latter. I added duck egg and lavender. I completed 50 rounds in total, before I added the border

I have written up the pattern free here.

You can purchase the yarn for this project here.

I am really please with the finished blanket. It measured 106cm x 106cm.

I still might make a blanket with lots of the smaller squares!

Amethyst Granny Square Border

Today I finished this giant granny square. I completed 50 rounds of the granny square, starting and finishing with Magenta. My colour order was Magenta, White, Aspen, Lavender, Graphite, Clematis and Wisteria. You can purchase the yarn here.

I chose a border from ‘Round the Corner – Crochet Borders’ by Edie Eckman. I selected border #130 and am really please with the result. I used White and Clematis for the border.

My finished blanket measured approximately 103cm x 103cm.

This week I have been working on this giant granny square.

I love these colours so much – they are Stylecraft Special DK in White, Graphite, Aspen, Magenta, Clematis, Wisteria and Lavender. You can buy this yarn here.

The pattern is based on a traditional granny square and is a seven row repeat.

I wanted this to be a giant granny square, so I think this will be around 50 rounds (I am aiming for approximately 100-110cm wide).

A few more rounds to go then I will start the border. Not sure what border to do yet, I was thinking that I might go with an all white border (but we will see).
