Patchwork Blanket is complete

My Knitted Patchwork Blanket is complete, all those squares that I had that were odd sizes have made a colourful unique blanket.

Each wide strip is made up of odd sizes squares from a swap I had joined, I added the narrow strips to hopefully give it a more structured look.
I added a picot crochet edge to it for a more finished look, it looks a little wavy along the edges but that is the way I laid it down rather than the blanket itself. It does need blocking.
Here it is on my sofa

I took the cushions off the sofa so I could get a better picture of it.
So now I have a very colourful blanket made up of stash yarn that is truly different. It will be used in the evening when we turn off the heating to save on the energy bill and I will nice and cosy. My Husband has nice thick aran weight afghan to keep him nice and warm that I made 2 years ago and it is his favourite.
It took ages to make and used up all my aran weight yarn it washes up nice and soft and is big enough to use on the bed as well.
Yes that is folded in half so you can see it is large but oh so soft and warm. Just right for those cold winter days and perfect for if they decide to have power cuts.


  1. Both your blankets are lovely Paula, there's nothing nicer than snuggling up in a lovely warm blanket that you have made yourself. :)

  2. I love your colourful blanket, which popped up in an image search because I'm thinking of using up plain stash colours in a similar way
