This is the story of a blanket I thought I’d never make.
Last year I was contacted by a lovely lady who asked me if I could make a single bed size crocheted blanket. I bet you’re thinking to yourselves there’s nothing wrong in that. Now here’s the thing, she asked me if I could make it in a really small stitch, double crochet (single crochet if you’re in the US) and that’s when I nearly fainted on the spot. I never thought in a million years that I would make a blanket that size using one of the smallest stitches possible. At first I was tempted to say no but then I thought to myself, why not give it a try. If you don’t try these things you’ll never know.
The next step was to decide on the colours and type of yarn. She asked me to use cotton and that’s when I discovered King Cole Cottonsoft which is 100% cotton and beautiful and soft, perfect for a blanket. She wanted rainbow type colours and I was happy to oblige as I love working with lots of colour, both pastel and brights.
I love the appearance that double crochet gives when used on a big project and the feel of the finished blanket was lovely. In fact I loved it so much that when I was asked to make another one I jumped at the chance x
