I am so pleased to have joined in with Attic24’s Moorland CAL. The whole experience was made so much richer by following the thread on Facebook, both on Lucy’s Attic 24 FB page and a new Page set up by Clare, especially for the Moorland Cal. Such camaraderie is a joy to find.
Lucy chose the purples, greens and browns of the Yorkshire Moors for her colour palette, but a few of us chose colours from our own environment. This lovely example was recently finished by Michelle, many of us have used different variations for the border.
My fellow crocheters have given permission to share their colour ways, all inspired by Lucy’s way of working with colour.
Allison chose Hawaiian colours as her inspiration, she was still wondering about including Meadow.
A stroll on the beach by Petra
This colour choice by Sara, inspired by the United Arab Emirates
New Zealand hills by Sally
Elizabeth was inspired by Lake Coeur d’Alene
and created a palette with Lion Brand’s Heartland.
Jan chose sunset colours :
Jan : I followed Lucy’s pattern of colour but replaced heathers and blues and then just went for it!!
All other colours same as Moorland
I took my inspiration from Dorset summer hedgerows and found this photo on the internet to show you the sort of thing I had in mind,
and came up with this palette.
My grandson seemed to like it whilst it was being made
I am very pleased with the finished article.
and it is already much appreciated by my niece who will take it back with her to Uni
If I was to make the blanket again I would substitute the dark green Khaki for the lighter green Pistachio and would use Lucy’s Cosy Stripe pattern, which I find much more relaxing to make.
Update: The edging I used was one row of single crochet (US) in Meadow, one row of Double Crochet (US) in Duck Egg Blue and then a row of Crab Stitch.
