This is becoming my favourite Helen Shrimpton pattern (And it’s free!)
I like it because the corners are built up in the round, which means there are a lot fewer ends to sew in than on other patterns where the corners are built up separately.
I have made this Throw for the daughter of one of my closest friends.
Lucy is the same age as my first born and her Mum and I lived in the same village. We became friends when we had our babies together in 1976.
Lucy has a Podcast: Spinsterhood Reimagined, which celebrates the positives and discusses the challenges of a single, child-free life.
She had seen my blankets and throws on Instagram and remarked ‘I want one!’.
I had wanted to make another ‘Virtue’, so when she said she would choose Autumnal colours, I was thrilled and started immediately. I just love this colour combination.
Stylecraft Special DK, 10 colours:
Tomato, Spice, Gold, Dark Brown, Burgundy, Claret, Copper, Walnut, Khaki and Bottle.
The pattern comes with Video Tutorials and is lovely to make.
I stopped short by a few rows and edged the throw with Helen’s Knot Stitch, from another free pattern – Sacred Space, Part 9. Penultimate row.
🙂 Haggis (f) likes it. 🙂
