Sometimes it’s not the stitch pattern in a knitting project that pushes you out of your comfort zone. Often it can be something as simple as colour. If you’re familiar with my work, you’ll know that I’m drawn to bright, bold, more modern shades, and that means that historically I’ve shied away from using more traditional pastel shades.

I think it’s good to push yourself out of your comfort zone every once in a while, so when I knitted my sample “Emma” blanket I settled on this lovely soft baby pink to contrast the more angular lines of the pattern repeat. I like to think it’s turned out really well, and I’ve actually really enjoyed working with the softer, gentler colour on this occasion - maybe you’ll even see more pastel blankets from me as we move through the summer!

Guage is not important for this pattern, as long as it remains consistent.
