WIP : blanket-adventure full of colourful surprises !

Last week I wrote about the beginning of my crochet adventure full of colour, and showed you my lovely balls of colourful yarn I choose for this new design.

This week I am really happy to show you the progress I am making !

The surprise-effect in design is mainly the combination of the bright colours and the combination of 2 totally different yarn textures.

Working with  Scheepjes Invicta Colour, a great soft and warm sock yarn with a long colour changing, AND also with the Scheepjes Catona cotton balls, is renewing and I love it so much.

I actually crochet with 2 strands together, 1 strands of each yarn, creating the most wonderful colour changes and colour accents !

I am designing a baby blanket, and we all know baby blankets need to be soft, warm and breathable. And also very easy to wash.

This means my yarn choice is not only a surprising one, but also a clever one 🙂   Since both yarns have all these qualities in them.

Did you also notice the lovely stitch pattern I am using ? With the relief in it ? And the lovely waves ?

I love working on the blanket, and the good thing is I will have it ready by next week. So make sure to come back and take a look at the finished blanket. (and I will also make a FREE pattern soon as well)
