As a bit of a Scheepjes Catona addict, I have been wanting to design something that would require a 10g colour pack. I was immediately challenged in two ways, both using all the 109 colours, but each should not surpass a certain amount of stitches so as not run out of a colour before time. It was a bit of reverse-engineering to get to the final design, lots of correction tape, some cursing, countless sheets of graph paper, some clapping too. And, the Poppy field blanket was born.

I added blue for the outlines. The technique is Interlocking crochet. The pattern comes with lots of information and photos, including photo guide on how to get started and how to make the colour changes. And with the information to contact me if there is something you wonder about.

By far, the project I most enjoyed doing so far. And now, I give it to you, I hope you enjoy this!
