Last week I came across the pattern of a blanket and my-oh-my, I fell in love with it immediately!
Coincidentally I had just sorted out my yarn and gathered all my acrylics in one basket.
The plan was to stash-bust and crochet a good old granny square blanket using all these fun colors for the first 2 or 3 rounds and then use the grey as joining color.
Loving Saskia’s brilliant “Tulpendeken”-blanket design as much as I did, I decided that this was going to be the pattern I was going to use for my acrylics. I totally envisioned this blanket in grey with spots of bright color ……
Being well under way with the project I could not resist trying out some lay-outs the other day. Loved the colorful lay-out, but …… me, the bright color loving person that I am, loved the all grey lay-out even more – oops!
Besides, it would match perfectly with the hexagon-blanket I made before – meaning it can live in our living room as well.So now I’ve decided to make two blankets using (parts of) the pretty “Tulip-blanket” pattern. One in grey, exactly like the one Saskia crocheted in a beautiful pastel blue.
For the second one I will only be using the bare diamond shape as described in the pattern; these will all be crocheted in the colorful acrylics and joined with black.
Although I suddenly have created an extra wip by changing my original plan, just the thought of both these finished blankets makes me a happy camper!
