Daisy Blanket Ta-dah

Hello Lovelies ,
 some of you may remember I'm trying to open a little Etsy shop this year. Well it's taking me a rather long to to get organised and build up some stock. Nevermind this is my hobby and I do have a busy life so I guess it's to be expected. This latest blanket has been a slow project , mainly due to my recent patchwork  , but I'm really pleased with how it's turned out in the end.

 Oooooh , I pile of colourful baby blankets in the evening sun , such a lovely sight......


I love these solid colour squares with their cute daisy centres. It's my own pattern and there is a tutorial in my side bar if you fancy giving them a try......


The squares are joined using the join as you go method . It really is easy once you get the hang of it . 
For the border I did four rows of granny clusters then a red picot edge. All three baby blankets have the same red edge because I love it so.......


The yarn is all all Stylecraft special DK. the colours are Lemon,Pale Rose,Spring Green, Turquoise,Fondant,Lavender, Shrimp,Wisteria,Meadow, Apricot,Sherbert,Raspberry,Cloud Blue and Grape ( oh and the flower centres areWhite and Saffron)........

Look at the blue,blue sky !!! Wonderful :0)

Here are all three blankets together.........


Happy , colouful and fun . You can read about the other two here and here. I've really enjoyed making them all and hopefully I will finally get round to opening my shop soon.....Hopefully !

I have a soft spot for that last daisy blanket, it's so refreshing and I know I am going to try out your pattern, it's just so lovely!The picot edging on that last row gives a perfect finish!

    1. Hi Kirsten , no they are not blocked as they are made from Acrylic yarn and you can only block natural fibers.

  52. Hi Jacquie. Thanks for your comment over at my blog. Your blanket looks stunning in the sunshine - it's so pretty! I've been enjoying your running posts too - my mood definitely feels lifted on the days when I've exercised, so the benefits of running go so much further than just cardiovascularly! Hope you're enjoying your weekend,
