Xavier’s blanket

15th September 2016

Xavi in his blanket

 

Not too long ago now, I made this blanket for gorgeous Xavi using the Circle Square pattern from Leonie Morgan’s 100 Bright and colourful Granny squares.

I used a palette of mustard, greys and cream to create the square and added an additional dc round to make the square bigger.

Once sewn up I simply added a mustard sc border. I didn’t want to add any fuss. This seemed perfect.

Yarn used was Stylecraft Special DK and I used a 5mm hook.

 

Blanket overview

 

I absolutely love making these blankets, I love how they come together no matter how detailed they are. How just starting, stitch after stitch gets you closer to a finished piece. I especially love making them for friends and family as gifts and seeing pictures of them being used. As always I can work to commission, but I’ve sometimes got ready made pieces in my etsy shop.
