So, here I am again, its very early in the morning, the house is quiet,
I have Michael Buble singing along in the background
and I thought I'd just pop back to say a huge thank you to everyone
for the amazing response I've had with my Christmas Blanket pattern.
I did a Takeover on Simply Crochet Magazines Instagram page over
the weekend and it seems I'm not the only one who likes a good dose
of Christmassy Christmasness as my blanket,
which has Christmas by the bucket load,
received just under 18,000 likes from fellow Christmas blanket lovers !
Thank you, I'm completely bowled over, to say the least.
I know some of you have had a bit of trouble finding the link to the pattern
so I thought it probably deserved a little post all of it's own !
I've had the idea for the blanket ticking away at the back of my head
since last Christmas as I just fell in love with all of the car and tree decorations
that seemed to be everywhere.
I finally got around to putting the design together at the beginning
of November this year and it was really very magical to watch it all come together.
The actual blanket is worked in dc ( UK terms) with bobbles worked
throughout in a white sparkly yarn.
The car and trees are then crocheted separately and sewn on to the finished blanket.
I then edged the blanket with a simple ruffle in a bright Christmassy red.
I used an aran weight, wool mix yarn so the blanket certainly delivers
on the warm and snuggly front too !
(The full details of all the yarns and colours I used are all included in the pattern.)
So, here's the link: Christmas Blanket
Happy blanket making - I hope you enjoy making it as much as I did!
If, after you've finished making your blanket, you have some yarn left
and you fancy making the complete set you could
add the Christmas cushion to your blanket too.
This is a free pattern and you can find it over at lovecrochet.com here
Happy Christmassy crocheting everyone!
