This is the one I made:
I don’t know what it is about this pattern which makes it so appealing but it really is, and the endless possibilities with different colour combinations means it’s one that you can come back to again and again!
Exploring #bertieblanket on Instragram is a really great source of inspiration for different ideas.
So this January, with another of my friends expecting a new baby some time this month, I decided to make another, and here it is so far:
I have been totally overwhelmed by the response to this blanket when I first posted it on my Instagram account. It’s had at least ten times as many likes as my other posts!
I’ve been asked about the colours I’m using so I’ve decided to list them here in case anyone else would like to use them. They are all Stylecraft Special DK yarn, which is 100% acrylic and lovely and soft.
The main colour is grey.
The other colours are:
- Duck Egg
- Storm Blue
- Vintage Peach
- Parma Violet
Here they are on the lovely yarn pegs I bought from The Polkadot Giraffe. I used these pegs to choose the colours as they are such an easy and fun way to play around with different combinations to see what will work.
Please do let me know if you use these colours in any of your creations as I’d love to see what they look like!
