Blanket Round Up Four

Just recently a CAL came to my attention for a blanket that was quite different to anything I had ever made before.  At the time I wasn't able to follow the CAL as it was happening because I was busy with other things.



Then I had to think about the yarn that I was going to use, the correct balance of colours was important to achieve the right effect. I wasn't going to buy any yarn, I wanted to use what I had already in my stash.  Luckily I had quite a lot left over from the Spicier life blanket,  I started to get quite excited about the prospect of starting this blanket but quite apprehensive too for two reasons the first being I wasn't sure whether or not I would be able to follow the pattern and secondly I wasn't sure if I had enough of all the colours to make the blanket as I had it pictured in my mind.

As far as following the pattern was concerned I needn't have worried at all, in fact it was one of the easiest blankets I have ever made, who would have thought that such a simple stitch could create such an intricate looking design.




The yarn was another issue however, I did run out of some of the colours which meant some of the sections aren't as wide as I would have liked them to be and the blanket is not as long, but I love it anyway it's just the right size to put over your knee on a cold winters night.




This was the Havana CAL Pattern  which unfortunately was only free for the duration of the CAL but the pattern is available to buy here on Ravelry



Some of the colour combinations I have seen are quite striking.  Another great thing about this blanket is the double border no weaving in of pesky ends as they are enclosed in the border.



Did anyone else make this blanket? I would love to see it if you did.😊

See all the great parties I will be liking to in my right side bar.
