I’ve been on a huge kick of using all my remnants and scraps and leftovers to create. Though you don’t always get those predictable, pretty, go-to palettes, you do allow yourself to free up space and freshen your yarn stash. So for this project, the second pattern in my free pattern series “Relaxghans”, I’ll be using a little stash of Scheepjes | Merino Soft left over from a project I made for my upcoming book, releasing in May. (Yay!)
Merino Soft is super enjoyable to work with as it is just buttery and always looks saturated. It won’t fade, and is very durable. Plus, check out this yummy color range! (A screenshot from Scheepjes.com)

Here is a quick snapshot of the small amount of Merino Soft in my stash.. I have so much of that pale peachy salmon color. Sooooo… it’s peachy background time! Yessss!
The rest of the colors seem like unlikely pairings, but I know it’ll be a whimsical blanket anyway with the color background. Also, remember, I threw the idea of the cohesive, “pretty” color palette to the wayside with these Relaxghan patterns. The idea is to use what you have and not to rush it and buy new yarn. So this palette will have to do! ❤️
Here’s what I came up with for the design. This blanket is called “Self Love.” The little flower in the center just makes me so happy. You could definitely make this in multiple colors for each round, but since this is a Relaxghan, I thought minimal ends to weave would be a highlight 🙂
As this piece grows, I’ll post more pics! Free Pattern will be available March 31.
