Showcase your crochet talents with this exquisite blanket designed by Helen Shrimpton in Willow Wash Worsted yarn.
I have used front post stitches, popcorns, folding single crochet and a round of fan stitch within the central star. Then clusters fan out like solar flares, until the design becomes square.
The outer rounds are made up of crossed double crochet, star stitch and starburst stitch. More information on designers website.
