Jurassic Blanket

coastal colours, linen stitch

My Wednesday WIP.

It is now big enough to keep me cosy whilst I’m working on it, and I’m loving being with these colours in Stylecraft Special DK and Stylecraft Batik.

Linen stitch, or extended Moss Stitch is perfect for blending colours and it makes a really warm thick blanket.

There are sections that are inspired by specific places along our Jurassic Dorset coast, and then some random stripes in the coastal hues.

Still a way to go if it is going to be snuggly warm for my nephew who is edging towards 6’4″ tall. I love that even at 23 he is keen to have a blanket to curl up under.

You can see the blanket I made for his sister here.

  6. Absolutely gorgeous ā¤ā¤ā¤ I love the moorland pattern one too but because I hopped over there from this page it wouldn’t let me ‘like’ it. That keeps happening to me lately…???! šŸ˜†

  10. I like the stitch you are using šŸ™‚
    I am in the process of making a blanket and I am using C2C. I like to use C2C because it’s {pretty much} solid. I don’t like the ones that have holes. My fingers and toes always went through them, when I was younger šŸ™‚ Lol

  11. I like the idea that some parts are inspired by actual places along the Jurassic coast near you. Will be really special.
