Oh my hooks have been busy! Lots of new designs to share, which seem to be coming out like buses at the moment! 😆🤣
Today is a very special one! Exactly 3 years ago today, on 13th August 2019, my ‘Late Summer Sunsets’ blanket was released in collaboration with The Knitting Network.
It’s been such a popular blanket design with kits available at the Knitting Network. Now I’ve designed an all new colour-way… introducing my ‘Summer Sunrise’ Blanket!
Yarn Pack with Pattern available here: https://www.theknittingnetwork.co.uk – summer-sunrise-blanket
It’s been added to the ‘Coastal Crochet’ Collection which I have with The Knitting Network and I earn a small amount of commission for each pack sold:
The original blanket 3 years ago was worked in Go-To yarn which is no longer available but it captured those sunset colours well. I loved taking it with me whilst on travels in Europe at the time. This sunset was captured with my blanket in the Black Forest in Germany…..
And I was in The Netherlands on the day of the launch and got a photo in Amsterdam!
I then crocheted a second version in 2020 using Stylecraft Special DK in deeper sunset colours…
And to celebrate the 3 year anniversary of the original, the lovely team at The Knitting Network asked me to design a new colourway using Emu yarns.
I was more than happy to oblige. Emu Classic DK is a brilliant DK acrylic yarn which I’m very happy to use and to recommend. The blanket is also such an easy going project and I enjoyed crocheting it again very much.
This time I chose ‘Summer Sunrise’ colours! It felt like the perfect theme for a new colour-way to complement as well as contrast the original design. I’ve chosen softer, delicate, pastel colours…. a little different to my usual choices.. but I absolutely adore them!
With an 11 row repeat it can become a very mindful project but the colour changes keep you on your toes and of course add interest to the design. 😄
It’s the kind of blanket you can take along anywhere, adding rows here and there without too much concentration. It’s certainly nice to have a project like that on our hooks once in a while! 😄
I hope you love it as much as I do: https://www.theknittingnetwork.co.uk – summer-sunrise-blanket
Don’t forget it’s Granny Square Day on Monday 15th August – there will be a new Granny Square Design from me and lots of round ups of other designs too! Keep your eyes peeled…
In the meantime, Happy Crocheting Everyone! 😄❤️
