Rainbow Stripes

Hello everyone,  I’ve finally finished on the pain management programme.  It’s been a long six weeks but well worth it and I feel so much better about myself. I’m generally able to keep my pain under control, in fact I’ve been able to come off some of my painkillers which has  also been a great help as the side effects aren’t too pleasant.  Would you believe it I’ve even bought a new bike and been able to go on a 15 mile bike ride with my husband and daughter.  It was one of my goals at the end of the programme but to be honest something I never thought I’d be able to do again.  You can’t imagine how happy it made me feel.

Anyway that’s enough about me, I’m sure you’d rather hear about my latest blanket.  As you can probably tell from the title of this post I’ve used lots of rainbow colours and it’s stripey.   

I actually started this blanket a few months ago but got sidetracked making other things including the granny square blanket in my previous post.  In fact I’ve used pretty much the same colours in both blankets. 

I’ve used Stylecraft Special Dk with a 4.5mm hook which gives a slightly more relaxed feel to the finished blanket.  The colours I’ve used are:  Pomegranate, Fondant, Candyfloss, Soft peach, Apricot, Shrimp, Citron, Lemon, Spring green, Aspen, Turquoise, Sherbert, Cloud blue, Aster, Denim, Bluebell, Lavender, Violet, Wisteria, Clemetis, Magenta, Boysenberry, Fuschia purple.  I’ve used cream for the border. 

I’ve done ten rows of Moss stitch for each of the stripes and six rounds for the border.  

I’m pleased to say that this blanket sold before I’d even finished it 😊

  1. I’m not surprised it sold quickly. The colours you used are so pretty and the moss stitch gives a lovely texture. It’s amazing!

  2. Beautiful blanket Sharon!!!
    I’d like to make this one – May I ask … How many chains for a twin bed/sofa size?!? Thank you!!

    1. Thanks Laurie, I’m not sure to be honest. The best thing to do would be to do the chains, measure it and stop when you get to the length you need. Sorry I can’t be of more help x

      1. Ok – Thank you Sharon!!
        I’m happy to hear you are feeling better 🙂 ~ (((BIG HUG!!)))
