If you have purchased the pattern via Etsy prior to 9 January 2021, please send me an email to theloopystitches@gmail.com so I can send you the updated version.

Don’t fear! It doesn’t stop you making the pattern, the butterfly chart had an extra two stitches and also the colour order in the colour table for a motif was incorrect. Everything else in the pattern is as is, and you can still work from the original. (see below for the updated colour table if you don’t want to email me).

It still feels weird to write or type 2021 lol.

If you purchased the pattern from Etsy prior to the 9 January 2021 Australia Eastern Standard Time, you will need to send me an email if you require the updated pattern.

The butterfly chart has been amended by removing two sneaky stitches and also the colour table was corrected as there was an incorrect colour number in Row 4, Motif 4.

This brings me to now. I’ve seen a couple of people having a hard time trying to work out the colour table.

Let me break it down for you.

On page 5 in the patter, the colours used are assigned to a colour number.

Then each motif and row are assigned colour numbers using the above.

Let’s use a row as an example… I’ll find a photo that will work

Ok so keep in mind the blanket is upside down… So Row 1 starts with the red row of flower and butterfly motifs on the right hand side of the blanket.

Let’s work on row 2.

And because the blanket is upside down, you will work from the right side to the left in order of motifs.

Row 2 – Motif 2

If you’re following the exactly colour order of my blanket, you will notice that rounds 1,2 and 7 are used using the C1 in the written parts of the pattern. Here in the table They aren’t referred to at all, this was purely to have the table with as least data as possible. Trust me, there was no real other way of doing a layout other than a table, that didn’t take up too much room or confuse you even more.

So the contrasting colours used in rounds 3 – 6 are numbered as 1 – 4.
Motifs are numbered in order such as M1 (motif 1), M2, (motif 2) etc. as they are placed in order 1, 2, 3 and 4.

Let’s look at row 2 now.

Motif 1

Motif 1 asks for colours in order of 2, 3, 4, and 6.

So make your motif using C1 in the first 2 rounds, then use the following:

Round 3: Using colour 2

Round 4: Using colour 3

Round 5: Using colour 4

Round 6: Using colour 6

Then you will join using C1 again (if you are joining as you go).

Motif 2:

Round 1-2: C1

Round 3: C5

Round 4: C4

Round 5: C3

Round 6: C2

Round 7: C1 for joining

Keep working along row 2 yourself to see if you can work what numbers go where.

I really hope this information helps you.

Happy Hooking!

I’ve seen a few people having a hard time trying to make sense of my colour table so I have spent a while adding colours in for a more visual aspect.

I hope this clarifies things a little more.

Also, please note that this table can be used for joining too if you’re following my colour way. Simply join in order of what’s mentioned under Blanket Row 1, Blanket Row 2 etc.

How cool does the table look. I only discovered that I could do this to it, this morning.

I’m self taught at everything that I do. So please bear with me on new things, such as figuring out the above.

Anyhow, I can’t wait to see your makes!!

Happy Hooking!

Loose Leaf Fillers

I have had a couple of people request something that can be added in between the motifs, to make the blanket a more practical one, rather than aesthetic.

So, I came up with a little leaf pattern. Now the blanket consists of butterflies, flowers and leaves.

It’s a super easy pattern and would be great used in your left over yarn and if possible, I’d go with a colour blend from reds to oranges, to greens, and then blues if you can. But really, it’s entirely up to you.

I have a YouTube video that you can watch to go along with it as well. Click the below if you’d like to go and see.

Please remember that this wasn’t a part of the original design. It may not sit exactly flat. Each leaf is only attached to 2 parts of the blanket. If you’re finding it too large, go down a hook size, and vice versa if you’re finding it too small.
