…..joined a CAL the other day to make a flower blanket….check out some fabulous photos and follow some links to some lovely blogs here…… THE FLOWER BED.
Couldn’t make up my mind what colours to do but eventually decided on pinks, browns and creams. Aiming to do a blanket about the size of a single bed….not so much for the bed but for snuggling on the sofa watching tv!! Each motif measures just under 6″ and is made with a Hayfields Bonus DK using a 4.5 hook….it’s a cheap 100% acrylic yarn but is pretty soft when done. It’s under £2 for a 100g ball so as I was looking at my pennies that was a contributing factor to my choice! LOL! I used a pattern on the ‘By Elizabeth Cat’ blog…….thanks Elizabeth for the great pattern and easy to follow instructions.
Only just got started but here are some pictures of my first steps, aiming for some more crochet time today so hopefully it’ll grow a bit more!
