I have been working steadily away at my big blanket now for ages, and I have decided it is big enough! So I have the final instalment for my epically long CAL, and then I will do the edge and it will be finished!! I'm not planning anything fancy for the edge, there is so much going on in this blanket already that I think something plain and simple will be fine.
Anyhoo, here is the last !! section of my blanket:
After the 2 rows of dark pink,
double row of SC in red (right side, then turn work and go back on wrong side),
then 1 row of 4dc clusters in sky blue,
then 1 row of sc in red,
then 1 row of 4dc clusters in spearmint,
then 1 row of sc in pale pink,
then 1 row of 4dc clusters in dark blue,
Then a section of double rows of sc in
Next I did a section of bobble stitch in flamingo and green.
Then a double row of sc in celery,
and another double row of sc in red.
Next I did a section of granny stripes in sky blue and pale blue then sky blue again.
The last section of the blanket is 5 double rows of sc in
And that is the end of the main part of the mixed stitch stripy blanket!!
Just the edge to go now, so close to finishing, I really want to get this finalised before the weather gets much warmer, it is a very heavy, warm blanket!
Thank you if you are still with me on this CAL, I know I have been unreliable in it's progress, and a lot of people have got on with it and made up their own sequence, which is great. I have seen many beautiful blankets finished months ago! I apologise for my poor CAL admin duties, it seems I am not great at regular postings, maybe next time I will choose a smaller, more manageable project! Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the process, and created something unique and special along the way!
These instructions will be put onto the CAL page so that anyone can have a go at making their own mixed stripy blanket when ever they like, it's never too late to join in!
I'll be back with a post about the edging and a few pics of the whole thing finished, this blanket deserves a tadah, even if we are all sick of the sight if it!! :)
Have a great day y'all, and thanks for visiting!
