Project started: Winter 2018
Project Completed: To be updated
This blanket was 100% inspired by my good friend Rebecca aka Lady Knit and when I say inspired I mean robbed and changed from a knitting pattern into a crochet pattern.
Rebecca’s original winter blanket pattern was Knit and done in scarf like lengths while changing the colour blocks of Purple, Cream and a deep green. Her finished piece was a blanket large enough to fit a double bed. The photo above doesn’t show the beautiful richness of the colours together. I absolutely fell in love with the finished design and jumped head first into making my own version of it with absolutely zero planning. Biggest mistake ever.
I got my wool in Aldi. Its the So Crafty double knit brand. The colours I chose to use,
because I like my pastels, are Pink, Grey and cream. Its a project I definitely didn’t plan out very well at all. I had no idea if I had enough yarn to make the blanket and will never be able to get more if I didn’t. I never wrote out a pattern to follow, I just winged it and never sketched a lay out design. All because I was just happy to be starting yet another project and lets be honest….. I wanted to buy more yarn!
I did however make the choice to crochet in seperate squares of which I managed to make 9 and a half of which before putting it back into the project bag and not picking it back up again untill New years day. Bordom is the biggest cause of my UFOs (Un-finished Objects) and it is a constant battle to get large projcets that become monotonous finished.
I will up date this project regularly as part of my 2020 Craft challenge. I would love to hear if you have had any disasters jumping head first into projects without any proper planning and how they turned out or are they still buried in the back of the closet?
