I've chosen these fifteen shades to make a beautiful striped blanket inspired by the Yorkshire moorland in late summer when the hills are covered in vibrant swathes of purple heather.
I'm using my go-to blanket-making yarn - Stylecraft Special DK which is a premium acrylic yarn in generous 100g balls. I love the blankets that this yarn makes, they are soft and easy to look after, but most importantly the yarn itself is a dream to work with. This is my Moorland blanket yarn pack, the colours are as follows ::
Top row, left to right ♥ Pistachio ♥ Sage ♥ Grape ♥ Wisteria ♥ Duck Egg ♥
Middle row, left to right ♥ Lime ♥ Meadow ♥ Mocha ♥ Violet ♥ Cloud Blue ♥
Bottom row, left to right ♥ Cyprus ♥ Khaki ♥ Walnut ♥ Plum ♥ Storm Blue ♥
You can buy the yarn pack from my shop at Wool Warehouse..
I'll be sharing my Moorland blanket journey here on my blog for those who would like to crochet along with me - I'll be working soft, undulating stripy waves of colour that sing of summer.
The full pattern and tutorial will be published for free here on my blog at the start of the Moorland Crochet-A-Long on Friday 6th January. There will be weekly colour updates every Friday throughout January and February 2017.
I've written an introduction to the CAL, with lots of pictures..
I hope you'll join me for a gentle crochet journey over the hills.........
