Autumn leaves baby blanket ta-dah!

This has been an interesting project for me to make. It was commissioned by a friend and although it is definitely out of my colour comfort zone I have come to love it.

The request was for ‘woodland colours’ and we put this combination of golds, greens and browns together in gorgeous Rowan wools:

Made in Rowan super fine merino in mellow (168), bark (153) and grass (154); and Rowan wool cotton dk in leaf (997), bronze (967), elf (946) and still (964).

It took one ball each of the six ‘leaf’ colours, and 4 balls of the ‘mellow’ background. Made to the ‘Bertie baby blanket’ pattern, by Little Doolally, on a 5mm hook.

This is such lovely yarn that I have to say that every stitch was a pleasure. Let’s hope the new mum approves!
