Good morning everyone!
I’m happy to report that I finished weaving in all the ends last night. I highly recommend that when you make your own blanket, you weave in as you go. (As a designer, you never know when you’re going to frog, so I like to leave my ends out ‘just in case’, because we all know how hard it us to find the ends after we’ve woven them in 😅).
I have loved seeing how excited you all are. It makes my heart sing. It really does! So thank you for your beautiful words, they do mean a lot. 😚🥰
Let’s get down to business…
But before I do the approximate size of the blanket is 152 cm x 178 cm (it’s not too stretched out, but not-not stretched lol) . The reason I say approximate is because this design can easily stretch or sit not too-stretch. You’ll know what I mean after you start making yours.
Here’s the information for the yarn I have used and also if you’re alternating a colourway (I’ll explain a little more further on).
Yarn Used: Stylecraft Special DK in the following 🧶
Sunshine Coast Colourway
But I want to use my own colours… well that’s fine 🙂 I’ve worked out how much yarn you’ll need if you want to alternate the motifs. When I say alternate, I mean light colours blending to darker ones for half the motifs and then darker colours blending to lighter ones for the remaining motifs.
Originally this design was made using just 5 colours, which is what the below refers to. And I’ve seen some beautifu test motifs using this option. They look amazing.
The below information is for all motifs; butteflies and flowers and the border too.
I hope the above yarn information helps. You’ll also need a 4mm and 4.5mm hook depending on your tension. More of that information will be in the pattern itself.
So let the countdown BEGIN…
1st January 2021, what a great way to start the new year. Good riddance 2020 😝 😜 🤪.
Make sure you’ve joined the Stylecraft Make Along Group on Facebook too, as it is Stylecraft’s January Make Along.
So until then…
