Hello! How are you going today?
I am pretty happy because I have finished my Skinny Stripe blanket!
All those ends are woven in and the edge is complete too! I have to say for such a simple pattern, just rows of sc, this blanket really makes me smile. Maybe it has something to do with using one of my favourite colour palettes, I do seem to go back to my old favourites time and again.
So anyway, here are some pictures!
I love all the little snippets of colour!
...and here are the colours I used in case you are interested. 15 different shades, randomly striped, I chose red for the border, but I think I could have picked any one of them and it would have worked and given a different look to the finished blanket.
I have put together a Skinny Stripe colour collection in my shop if any one feels the need to create one of these happy blankets! Of course you could make up your own favourite colour palette, the skies the limit with this one!
I chained 150 stitches to start and I think there are about 110 coloured stripes in total. I think I used more than one ball of red and mid green and mid blue, but I wanted a few extra stripes in these colours. You will also need an extra ball of your border colour to finish off, I just did a few rounds of sc with simple picots for added cuteness!
So have you finished anything fun recently?
It feels good to get some finished projects under my belt!
Have great colourful day!
