Meadow Blanket CAL Pack by Attic24


This yarn pack designed by Lucy from Attic24 has been inspired by her walks in early summer when the meadow is full of tall grasses and wild flowers. She has chosen fifteen shades of Stylecraft Special DK to create a beautiful striped blanket, capturing the gentle, calming colours of a summer meadow.

Lucy will be sharing her blanket as a Crochet-A-Long on her Attic24 blog for those of you who would like to crochet along with her. You can read all about the inspiration behind this pack on Lucy's blog, here's a sneak peek:

"It's hard to put into words how much I adore these colours - they are extremely calming (without being dull) and bring a gentle warmth which reminds me so much of my summer meadow walks. They sing to me of sunshine and a light breeze, of soft footsteps around quiet pathways, of tall waving grasses, distant hills and calming views. And of course the floral delights are represented in all those glorious hues - the pinks, purples and golden yellows of the wild meadow flowers.

Beautiful, all of it."

One yarn pack will be enough to crochet a single bed sized blanket 4ft x 6ft. For a double/kingsize blanket you will need two packs.
