Spring/Summer Blankets ideas....

Hiya, Jo here for a little inspiration..... 

Lisa, also sells wool/yarn in the shop so I thought I'd share some pics of my blankets

I have been making a few blankets for the coming Spring/Summer months,
when it's not cold enough to put the heating on 
but for when there is a chill in the air and fancy a snuggle in a warm blanket!

Here are some of my projects I do hope they will bring some ideas to you...

I have made the above blanket using a basic granny square stitch....
and random colour changes over 4 colours of yarn

This one is the same as above but more random colour changes 
but a 1 row of cream thrown in here and there

This is a real summer bright blanket, which will be my lap/shoulder blanket this year
This is another simple stitch called the "V stitch" and 2 rows of each colour yarn

I also added a scalloped edge

There are loads of patterns on the web
but I love just experimenting and trying random colour patterns.......

and finally here are 2 pics of 2 works in progress blankets.
The first is cream, pink and brown baby size blanket 

And second blanket is a stripy granny blanket 
that will be for a double size bed/ large sofa

Don't forget to pop over to the shop's website

Big hugs Jo xxx


  1. All stunning makes ;-) Love all the colours you have used and the patterns are lush. Do you have a link for the Stripy granny blanket pattern? As I would love to try one and I have only ever made squares before lol xxx
