A Cotton Crochet finish.

Posted on | April 2, 2019 | 12 Comments

Back in November I was working on a crochet blanket which contained a variety of blocks. I was distracted when one of the colourways really appealed to me as a possibility for a full blanket.

So of course I went off on a tangent and made a block to try it out.

The more it grew the more I liked it.

You can see where it is going now.

I completed the twenty five blocks, stitched it together and added the simple border.

The pattern is from a Patons book, Colourful Crochet – number 108. It is simply called Mandala Motif Blanket.

I used an 8 ply cotton from Bendigo Woollen Mills. It was a lovey yarn to work with in the blanket.

It has ended up as a 125cm square.

My next crochet distraction is the Sweet pea blanket that is a CAL from Attic 24.

After a crazy cold weekend we are back to lovely sunny Autumn days. Perfect for time in the garden during the day, and stitching inside in the evenings. Have a great week.

Cheers, Karen
