The Tulip Blanket

maRRose - CCC: The Tulip BlanketYay! I’ve finished my “Tulip Blanket” and I could not be happier with it!
It turned out exactly the way I hoped, and not only does it look beautiful, it’s very comfy and warm as well, and I love snuggling (crocheting, haha) under it.

It all started when I fell in love with Saskia’s “Tulpen Deken” a couple of weeks ago (blogged about that earlier, you can read that post here), and I just couldn’t wait to have mine finished!

The link to the free pattern can be found here (sofar only in Dutch I’m afraid, but I believe an English version is underway).

It’s funny how I noticed, when I saw Saskia’s blanket two weeks ago, that she has squared her Tulip Blanket off on the long sides, and I’ve done this on the short sides – for no particular reason.
