Alpacalicious - Not Your Everyday Granny Blanket
Prudence has been selling her ever-popular and luxurious ‘Alpacalicious’ rug kits at the Australian craft shows since 2009. Now the pattern is available on its own. Originally created using 16x50g balls of sportweight pure alpaca yarn (each in a different colour) and a 3.5mm hook, this pattern would also suit any other 8-10 ply (light worsted/aran) yarn, simply by choosing an appropriate sized hook.
This design is a more textural approach to the granny square idea; the Frog Tree sportweight works up into a luxuriously soft and warm blanket.
I love all the bright colours available in this yarn
…and now I am working on a 2nd (and larger) rug using some of their neutrals, too.
