It’s been a long time coming since I’ve first teased you with the pictures of this blanket! From the moment the first teaser was posted I got an incredibly positive response. I won’t lie: It feels amazing that something I create is loved by others!
The Paint Drip Blanket gets its name from the likeness to little drops of paint running down the coloured stripes. They are made with dropped stitches, a fun and playful stitch that is indispensable in your stitch repertoire. The blanket is reversible because the dropped stitches are also visible on the back of the blanket. It looks equally pretty on both sides!
I’ve used my favourite colours of Stonewashed for the edging. I’ve always adored the blue/green tint, as it’s such a cheerful colour. And thanks to my Rainbow Blocker set, the edges came out nice and straight as well!
The yarn I’ve used is Scheepjes Stonewashed. It’s a yarn with a white soft ‘fuzz’ spun into its coloured core, creating all these different tints you see. It’s a cotton/acrylic mix, that’s soft and can be easily washed. It also softens over time, although this blanket doesn’t need it – the stitch pattern makes sure it’s flexible and supple from the start.
The pattern is suitable for beginners, contains a crochet chart, photo tutorial for the dropped stitches and instructions on how to adjust your measurements. In short: everything you need to make your very own Paint Drip Blanket. Enjoy!
