I’ve used Noro Taiyo yarn for the centre of each square and basic white superwash wool for the borders. After I joined all of the squares I did 2 rounds of double crochet in white and one round of single crochet with the leftover Taiyo.
This is the exact copy of the previous blanket, 5mm hook, 6×8 squares. Easily a king-sized throw. But this time I splurged on 10 skeins of Noro, in 3 different colourways. The yarn is lovely and soft. I’m hoping the high cotton content will make it not as felt-able as other Noro yarns, as I intend to wash it on the wool cycle in the washing machine.
I did run out of the white yarn so part of the edging is off white. I find little things like this very charming. I often leave mistakes in my work and I don’t bother myself with dyelots very much either.
The Sheep painting was a studio warming gift from the lovely and talented Kristin Croissant.
I have been asked about my method for joining the squares together; I have found this video tutorial and I’ve followed it to a T for both blankets. Enjoy!
