I designed this blanket as a tribute to all you talented makers (yes, I’m talking to you!).
I wanted to give you a way to be able to stand up and proudly say “I MADE THIS”!
I’m so passionate about encouraging the tribe of generous gifted, inspirational creators out there to celebrate themselves! As makers, we rarely give ourselves credit for what we do. With this statement blanket I wanted to enable you wonderful people to create a permanent reminder for you and those around you of your talent and skill! So give yourself a big pat on the back and be proud of the work you put into this and all of your creations!

Skill Level & Special Stitches
Beginner / Improver – The blanket is made from a combination of hdc and bobble stitches so is a great project for a beginner with some experience. The tricky bit is keeping count to ensure the bobbles are placed correctly!
A description of the Foundation Half Double Crochet is given in the pattern along with a modification for those who prefer to work directly into a foundation chain has the beginning of a project instead.
The PDF Pattern includes written instructions and a pattern chart
6mm / I hook, 5.5mm hook for boarder
~2300yds, 1250g Worsted Medium Weight yarn,
The piece pictured used 9 Skeins of Lion Brand Heartland in Denau (aff)
This blanket can be made in any yarn with hook to suit – the size of the final blanket will reflect different yarn weights.
The blanket is one size measuring approx 68in x 40in in the example materials stated
Gauge: 5in(12.5cm) x 5in(12.5cm) = 15st x 7 rows
