Big Heart Blanket - Tadah!


Hello!  How is your week going, good I hope!  

I have been to a funeral today, which always leaves me feeling rather flat and emotionally drained, so I am here to share some bright and colourful pictures as a little antidote to the sads. 

I hope you are all not too sick of seeing this blanket, it is finally all together and totally complete! Yay!   
I think this was one of my most enjoyable make of recent times, I love using this cotton and the colours just seemed to work together so nicely, it was a really fun crochet time. 
I am thinking of making another one in  cool pastels of mauves, lilacs, pinks and mints, I think that would be lovely too! 
And the sewing together went quite smoothly which was good, I was worried it would look messy, but I think it has gone together quite neatly! 







....a few people were wondering what the back looks like, so here is a picture of the front (above) and the back (below), as you can see there is not a lot of difference, just the seam is a little more noticeable on the back. :)  You've gotta love tapestry crochet for that, it makes a great reversible fabric! 


So that is a wrap for the Big Heart Blanket!  Thanks for all the nice comments you have left recently, I really do appreciate all the kind support I receive over here on the blog and also on Instagram, everyone is so super nice!!! :) 

One other thing, I have actually written up this pattern and finished loading it onto my Ravelry store, so I now have a grand total of 2 patterns for sale over there! lol.  
Here is the link to Ravelry if you are interested to have a go at one of these yourself! I don't think it is available to the UK at the moment, I have to have a look at how to do that with the new tax laws over there.


Talk soon!

    Not sick at all! I love it!!! A cheerful site. I'm thinking this would make a lovely baby blanket, a bit smaller of course. (Which I'm in need of making.) lol Just finishing up a triangle scarf in sock weight yarn, so I'll need another project to start. ; )

  23. I am so sorry about your loss. I am glad the fabulous colours in your heart blanket can help you to feel a bit better. I think it is magnificent and thank you for answering my question before I got to ask it which was whether the blanket was reversible or not. I like the depth of the 'v' at the top of each heart. A very effective motif with perfect colour combinations - a beautiful blanket, well worth the wait. xxx

  25. It's lovely! I really <3 that blanket! ;)

  26. This is a beautiful blanket and I love it ❤ it looks amazing in that cotton too. I'd love to use the same cotton and make a nice single size blanket like this, yet sadly I think that would be way over my budget. I might have to try making it in something else, maybe Caron Simply Soft :).

    I just checked Ravelry and I'm delighted that I would be able to buy it, I'm from the UK and was a but sad when I read I might not be able too. I am assuming you sorted it out and used the deal ravelry secured with Love Knitting. Great to see as I'll definitely be buying this pattern sometime to make this blanket. I love it a lot!

    Thanks for sharing and great photos too :)
