The patchwork blanket.

5 Oct

As promised, here are pictures of the finally finished patchwork crochet blanket. I made it home early enough to photograph it in daylight and the colours are reasonably true to real life.

So here it is…


Close up…


and folded…


I am so pleased to have finished this blanket so that we can actually use it, especially now the weather had turned. I can’t quite remember when I started it however it must have been around January (I remember starting the first square whilst teaching my friend her very first crochet stitches). It hasn’t taken me 9 months (that would be shocking), I have stopped and started it many times after becoming distracted with other things.

Once again, I used Rowan Pure Wool DK in these colours; Enamel, Port (deep red), Dahlia, Tea Rose and Hyacinth. I used a size 4mm hook and it is worked in UK treble crochet.

Hope you like it.


P.S I have now added a lovely little picot border to this blanket and it has finished it off very nicely. I’ve not done a border on a  blanket before but it was definitely worth the extra time 🙂
