All the motifs sewn on – I just need my Grandson to try out the finger-puppet to decide how long the cord needs to be.
Pattern for the blanket is by Lucy at Attic24:
Patterns by Lucy: Autumn Leaves and Acorns
Pattern by Charlotta for the larger Oak Leaves.
Pattern for the Larger Maple Leaves by Michelle
Pattern for the Squirrel Motif and Finger Puppet by me.
Pattern for Old Brown, sewn on as a pocket to hold Nutkin, is an adaptation of this cute little owl by Jacquie at Bunny Mummy. Jacquie has kindly given me permission to share my adaptation – coming soon!
I stopped after the 89th colour row (each colour is 2 rows) and this blanket measures.
1m19cm (3’11”) wide
1m 64cm (5’4″) long
Using Stylecraft Special DK, I mostly followed Lucy’s Random Colour Order, substituting Mocha with Walnut and changing the order a little here and there.
Foundation Row: Lime
