Lecchi Crochet Blanket
In 2012 we went on holiday to Italy and stayed in a village called Lecchi.
While sitting under olive and pine trees in the Tuscan sun I played with colour and triangles.
It didn’t take long for me to realise that the very simple triangle I was mindlessly playing with had huge potential, the colours glowed in the dappled sunlight and I loved the way they fitted together.
I spent the rest of the holiday making triangles out of scraps, it took us 3 days to drive home and when I wasn’t driving I was sitting crocheting with a lap full of orange and pink triangles.
Lecchi was first published in the very first edition of Simply Crochet, I was really proud to see it on the very first cover.
This version of the Lecchi pattern has been totally re-written and now contains a crochet colour by numbers chart.
Lecchi measures approx. 47 x 49 inches
