YOP – year 5 week 32

YOP 5a

Some of this weeks work contained a blog post taking a more in depth look into my Cosán pattern, that can be read here.

There has been some caking of yarn for new designs as well as lots of charting.

Then the remainder of the crafting work was spent working on the blanket which in this picture has 5 repeats of each of the 15 colours used in it. Each colour needs working one more time each in the stripe pattern and I’ve 8 colours left to do in that last sequence. Then it is time for the border. I’m hoping to get the majority of those last 8 colours done today and I’m definitely looking for a finish on this by next Sundays yop post.

    That blanket is very pretty. You have done quite a bit on it this week and I too, see you finishing it and getting the border done by next week. Lucy at Attic 24 has some wonderful patterns and her colors are always so bright and cheerful. I taught my niece to crochet using her ripple pattern.

      Thank you and I certainly hope it’s off the hook. Yes her patterns are gorgeous and it’s her colourway for this blanket I’m using as I just loved it and couldn’t have done better picking myself.

    I would have thought the blanket was in finishing stages (weaving ends, etc.) if you hadn’t mentioned a few more rows. But, that’s me 🙂

  3. That blanket looks giant!!! It’s beautiful and so colourful!

  4. Lucy Bowen says:

    Gosh it really is splendid. And with another repeat will be properly majestic.Love the colours and I’m looking forward to seeing the result from the charting and caking!

    This looks like serious work – serious fun, that is. I know your friend will love receiving this, Ruth. It’s just beautiful.
