The Colours of Spring

I have been very busy behind the scenes these last couple of weeks but as promised here is my lovely stash of yarn.

Stylecraft DK YarnsAs you can see I have already been using some of it, I got busy with the blues first………………….

Stack of Squares………………and made this lovely stack of squares for the outer edge of a baby blanket in cool minty blues and greens.

    This is such a gorgeous blanket. Can I please have the pattern for the centrepiece? Also, which weight yarn did you use? How much yarn did you need (how many g?). I hope I can make something similar 🙂

      I am so happy to hear that you are going to make a blanket too. I wish now that I had written out the pattern but sadly I did’t. I will email you the pattern for the centre squares and will happily answer any queries you have. I used Stylecraft Special DK, this is a a really nice soft yarn that I use for lots of projects. From memory I didn’t use a full ball of any of the colours so one of each of your chosen colours should be fine. I hope this information helps.

    HI, I am a beginner in crocheting, I would like to ask what’s the size of your granny squares and your blankets ? is it a 4 ply yarn? what needle size in mm that u use? I love your colour palette too and so as your blog! Thanks for taking time answering my question!

      Welcome to the world of crochet, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. The squares on this blanket are 4 inch squares worked in Stylecraft DK using a 4.50mm crochet hook. So pleased that you liked my blog and hope that you will come again soon. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask, I am happy to help if I can.

    What a beautiful blanket. Those colors really look like spring! Thanks for visiting my blog. I look forward to reading more of your posts.

    that’s absolutely lovely! I have a square afghan in the works too, though I never thought about mixing squares like this!


    • May 31, 2013 / 21:58

      I crocheted them together by putting the right sides together and slip stitching through the outer loop of the V shape at the top of each square. I like doing it this way as each square has a defining line around it on the right side. Hope you understand what I mean. Maybe I could do a tutorial if it would help. Do you make blankets too?


      • nanacathy2 June 1, 2013 / 16:20

        I have never made a blanket of squares to join together.I am doing a CAL at the moment and I know how I am going to join that one, but I fancy doing one for my grandchild to be so was really admiring yours. A tutorial would be fantastic please.

        I am picking my daughter up from uni this weekend but I will try and do it in the next couple of weeks if thats ok. Hope you share what you decide to do, I would love to see. When is your grandchild due? I am very envious as I am still waiting for one to appear on the horizon. I keep asking but none of mine are ready yet!


      • nanacathy2 June 2, 2013 / 16:53

        The expected grandchild should be with us sometime in October- be Number 3 for me- it’s great! I’d love to do something by then! As I have three sons and two grandsons I am thinking PINK!

        All babies/children are wonderful but it would be nice for you to work up something in pink, thank you for visiting and stay in touch.
