I’ve seen many blogs recently committing and finishing large projects – complex shawls, large throws, blankets and on and on. I always wanted to make something large. And this is my attempt.
Using some lovely summery soft cotton DK in linen, pink and lavender and I started making squares. This is another thing that I’ve never yet been able to do, repeat knit patterns. And here you’re looking at 20 squares. All of the same pattern. I know I’m belabouring the point but this really is a big first for me.
I wanted to have a gently striped, textured pram blanket. So when I had all the squares done, I played around with the lay out and determined my favourite. This is it.
I then started to crochet them together. First along the rows and then along the length. It didn’t take long – I love crochet for that.
Finally I edged the whole item – in the three separate colours and finished off with crabstitch. And that’s it! I am incredibly proud because I class this as a large project. And in case you spotted the pattern – I hope you have – here’s a close up. Take a guess at what it is:
I hope you can see what it is. The clue is in the title of the blog. Let me know what you think.
And here’s the final photo. The edging is most definitely there.
If you’re clueless, here’s the pattern I used.
