This last month I have been on a crochet journey outside my comfort zone
working with a colour palette chosen by a customer.
Stylecraft Special DK
in grey with spice, parchment, meadow, denim, silver, lime,
storm blue, mocha, aster and graphite.
She chose a solid granny square pattern which I love
as in this pattern I can crochet over all the ends!
First I made all of round 1
then added round 2
in all colours
round 4 and 5
and finally all edged in the grey joining colour.
Matching my mugs to my crochet was a challenge this month
as the observant amongst you will have noticed
that I tend to favour pretty florals in pinks and reds and blues!
But what a delight these squares became
and it wasn't long before I was enjoying
a touch of Orla Kiely colours.
At first I thought the blanket
was going to be dull and masculine
but it soon grabbed my attention
and the change of colour palette has been very refreshing.
64 solid granny squares
and not an end in sight!
My mathematical brain loves the patterns created by these squares
from the stripes and the holes.
Joining was fun
and snuggling under the blanket as I made it was a pleasure.
is such a pleasure to use for blanket making,
smooth and soft
and beautifully even.
Its no wonder this blanket has been so popular!
I am delighted to announce that you can now buy this as a colour pack
You can read how I make these solid granny squares

Hope you are all having a happy hooky weekend!
