Cottontail Blanket FO Reveal

Iris Dongo of Southern Belle Crochet fame (IG: @southernbellecrochet) – a fabulous member of the Tester Tribe – has finished testing the Cottontail Blanket! And just in time for Easter, too! She did an absolutely wonderful job photographing the project along the way. Could it be because she runs her own photography business with her husband? Just maybe! All of the beautiful photos in this post were taken by Iris. Enjoy ❤❤ Cottontail has been brewing in my idea bank for about six months. As soon as I laid eyes on the yarn, I knew it was destined for bobbles. It’s a super bulky yarn, so those are some seriously plush bunny tails!  And the beautiful thing about working with super bulky yarn? The speed… I cannot believe that the pile of Roma Big yarn* went from that pic above…. to this (heart eyesss!): And finally to THIS beauty! In such a short time!  It’s a fast and cozy make. Iris agreed with me that it’s so soft and squishy! Her words! Hehe What a cozy piece, …

Moon Landing Blanket is finished!

Allow me to introduce my newest FO: the Moon Landing Blanket!  Features:  Bold, large hexagons with color rings worked through BLO for a beautifully neat layered look Bobbled corners that reach out to each other creating a diamond visual PLT join using HDC instead of SC which gives a wider band of color between motifs 3 Different yarn types (see below!) with varying textures and makeups, all the same  care instruction for easy wash My first blanket with hexagons placed in this “sideways” orientation! Half hexies are on the long sides of the piece – never done it that way before! Yarns used (all Scheepjes brand): Inner hexagon color – Stone Washed First color ring and join/border – Colour Crafter  Second color ring – Softfun Aquarel Full free pattern coming soon – Should be finished with it by next week! Hope y’all enjoy this one! It’s for my cuter than ever 3yo cousin – adopted from Ethiopia ❤️❤️ Can’t wait for her to snuggle in it! I made her brother a blanket for last Christmas (Zendoodle Blanket No. …

This blanket is made for a rock star.

Peep this rockin’ blanket. I’m in love with it and so pleased to share the pattern with you all – look for “Hexagon Burst: Free Pattern” next week! (Needs to go through my updated pattern template checklist!) I’m still going around for portions of the border, but I’m still calling this an FO because I can finish the pattern at this point. Can you just imagine draping this blanket around your shoulders for an instant rock star energy boost? Make it in the original Scheepjes* Velvet* for maximum energy potential, or pick your own yarns and have a blast mixing up the color palette.  Here I started one in a little 17-color mix of Catona Denim* and Sunkissed*.  Isn’t it darling in this yarn? Complete change of personality! And so lacy in the thinner weight too. In this sample, I used the same color for the first three rounds instead of just two, because I wanted to have more variety of colors among the motifs.. Lowering the amount of colors per hexie to four helped, and …
