I mentioned before Christmas that my sister is 40 in August and I want to make her a lovely blanket as a gift. I know she really likes the pattern on the front of this book by Susan Pinner:
I have 20 colours and I’m intending to make the blanket 20×20 squares to fit a King size bed… I added six new colours to the palette I bought from Marmalade. I think the purples and jewel colours add depth to the other colours.
This is going to be a big project! By the end I think I’ll have to crochet in her bedroom!! Unusually for me with crafting projects, I have thought about this carefully. I made a note of all the colours, and more importantly, their catalogue number should I need more balls!
I have decided to do all 400 round 1s first, then do all round 2s etc. I intend to take the 20 round 1s of each colour and do round two on each in a different colour (with one the same obviously!); then I shall separate them by the colour of round 2 and do the same with round 3. That way I can make sure that no square is the same. And the only way I can do this is by being SUPER organised!
