gosh, it has been such a long time… I got carried away but so many things that I have neglected my blog! So |I will rectify this and make sure I write more blog’s entries because I have been missing this platform .. so let’s start the new year with a new project! My first project for 2020 is the Peerie Blooms blanket. I made the blanket in collaboration with Stylecraft Yarns as
my contribution to the new Blogstar’s MAL program. It is a perfect opportunity to use some of Stylecraft’s new colours that have been recently added to their Special Range in Aran and Chunky weight.
As you all know the majority of my projects are done with DK yarn so the challenge has been using an Aran weight and a relatively small colour palette! I wanted to create an easy-to-crochet project, with a simple and uncomplicated square quick to make with the Aran yarn, a great way for beginners to experiment with colours and textures a blanket for the ones of you that don’t have much time or want an ‘in-between’ projects to enjoy on the go or as a break from more complex patterns or while socializing, travelling or watching TV !!
Did I cover all the possibilities and full-fill the challenge? I hope I have! The name Peerie means small in Scottish and that is what this blanket is all about.. a razzmatazz of little three-dimensional flowers in a vibrant meadow full of colours. There are 99 squares organised in 4 colours combinations and arranged as a Tartan fabric, again a homage to Scotland, my adoptive home that I love so much. As I want EVERYONE to be able to make my blanket, regardless of their abilities or native language, the pattern includes charts of the motif, the joining method and the border.
I also have uploaded, on my youtube channel, my first video of how to make the Peerie Blooms square. In the next few days, I will upload the joining method too.
The pattern contains the instruction for a bonus blanket made by one of my testers , Susan Cox. It is a smaller version, perfect for a baby blanket or a little lapghan made with Stylecraft BELLISSIMA and BAMBINO
