Beautiful baby blanket in my Tulipan pattern. The pattern uses front and back post stitches to create the textured tulips. The back side of the blanket is also very beautiful - the pattern on this side looks very much like a flame.

The pattern has written instructions and a chart and also comes with step by step photos for making post stitches. It takes some concentration in the beginning, but it has a certain logic to it that will make it surprisingly easy.

I used 12 skeins of Anina (100 % super wash wool, 210 m/50 g) from Filcolana but you can easily swap for a different yarn - the pattern has instructions on how to adjust the size of the pattern and how to make a gauge swatch.

The pattern is available in danish and english (US terms)


Smukt tæppe i mit eget tulipanmønster. Mønsteret hækles med reliefstangmasker, og bagsiden af tæppet har også et virkelig flot mønster der minder meget om flammer.

I mønsteret er der både skriftlige instruktioner og et diagram samt trin for trin-fotos til reliefstangmasker. I begyndelsen kræver det en del koncentration, men ret hurtigt opdager man logikken i mønsteret og så er det sket ikke så svært som det ser ud til.

Jeg brugte 12 nøgler Anina fra Filcolana (210 m/50 g, 100 % superwash uld), men du kan sagtens erstatte med et andet garn. I opskriften er der instruktioner til hvordan du kan hækle flere eller færre gentagelser af mønsteret.
