The full pattern is now available in one post! Check it out here.
Since the last update a while back, I added a few more rows to the sampler blanket. Or so I thought… Oops! Turned out to be quite a chunk. I’ll walk you through it.
Last time I ended with a couple of Granny clusters in Sherbet and Turquoise. Since then I added the following.
Jup, a pretty large piece! After the granny clusters I’ve made a few more rows of bobbles stitches, and even some surface crochet! It’s really hard to see, but the creme white part contains 2 lightgreen lines. I wasn’t sure at first, because I thought it would pull the blanket inward as the Catherine wheel did the last time. But that didn’t happen at all! Hurray! Here you can see it a little bit better (a little bit…):
Furthermore I added another Bobble row (but this time, the bobbles are done like in the Something-pretty pattern, a shell row and reverse crochets. I really like those!
In all honesty, It’s really not neon at all! It’s the bright pink from Stylecraft, which is hot, but not like IN YOUR FACE-pink. Anyhow, see how the stitches are slightly slanted? It makes for a great texture and it’s really sturdy as well. Jup, likin’ it.
The blanket is large people. Large! But very supple due to the large crochet hook used.
I really like it so far. The only regret I have, is not making a bobble row (like the red and green) in the bottom part of the blanket. But hey, sampler blankets are born out of mistakes, right? Also, as you can see, the Catherine wheel part is not pulling inward as much as it was a few rows back. I’m considering doing another row, but this time like in my own pattern.
