Yarn Along: Hedgerow Blanket

An update on my progress with the Attic24 CAL

dsc_0128

Lucy has designed a beautiful Moorland Blanket using mainly greens and heather purples. I have substituted some of the colours with pinks and other neutral colours to use yarn I already had and this has created what I believe is a palette representing English Hedgerows in early summer.

Does the palette suggest something different to you?

My substitutions:

Joining in with Ginny’s Yarn Along.

Whilst I crochet I am watching/listening to the first series of  “Money for Nothing” presented by Sarah Moore, which I bought for £10.99 from BBC iPlayer. She gathers items destined for the tip and with the help of top class artisans, she repurposes them.

Sarah was the first winner of BBC2’s ‘Great Interior Design Challenge’ in 2013.

Go to my THROWS Page  to see other throws, blankets, afghans I have made with hints and tips on how to make them yourself. I am happy to answer any questions you might have.

  9. Definitely a Pembrokeshire spring and summer hedgerow, but dare I suggest some of that blissfully bright and beautiful Gorse Yellow? You got to have gorse in it!

    • Oh YES! Gorse of course!!!! You have given me the inspiration for my next throw/blanket Deb. I am following Lucy’s colour pattern at the mo with this one, which perhaps is a Dorset Blanket (Lucy’s a Yorkshire Blanket) and then I will create a Pembrokeshire Blanket – with Gorse yellow popping in the mix. THANK YOU!!!!!!!! ❤
