This beautiful blanket was completed last week and handed to it’s new owner on Friday!
I thoroughly enjoyed crocheting this blanket, from the ‘new to me’ stitch to the colours.
The border I made up as I went along, I decided to scallop each end of the blanket so it matched a little better and then squared it off to all 4 sides looked the same.
I made one small but significant change to the pattern I’ve linked below, and that was to change the 7ch between pinwheels to 6ch. This stopped the bunching of the chain when working on the next row above.
Pattern: Greenway, a free pattern from Berocco
Yarn: Luxury 8ply 100% Wool from Bendigo Woollen Mills in 312 Frost, 322 Lotus, 324 Aquarium, 343 Stone & 363 Blue Denim
Size: 1.1m x 1.2m Weight: 1.2kg
** EDIT **
I have received lots of emails and comments regarding a particular problem that lots of people seem to be running into with Row 4. I’ve been replying via email with the solution, but I’ve since realised that’s not helpful if you’re reading the comments below for the answer! Here is the response if you’re having the same problem:
“Row 4: Ch 1, skip first sc and ch 3, *[3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc] ”
They’re asking you to skip the first sc AND the ch 3 from the previous row. It’s a little confusing, because it does make it sound like you have to skip a sc and then ch 3.
Also, I do not have a pattern for the border I’m afraid! I don’t have the blanket anymore either, otherwise I would be more than happy to put something down onto paper – I wish I did back then. Maybe I’ll just have to make another one
