The crochet squares that make up this blanket are worked in two shades of one colour, sometimes the two are balanced, at other times one shade is dominant. This play of colour, together with the raised stitch used for the squares, gives a blanket that is full of interest and texture.

My blanket measures 117 x 81 cm and is worked with DK weight yarn, using 300g of dark grey and 50g each of eight other colours. The pattern could also be used for other weights of yarn and to make different sized blankets.

All my ravelry patterns are free to download but, if you enjoy them, please consider making a donation to the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, a charity which funds research and supports the families of children with a liver disease. You can do this easily by going to my fundraising page
