In the spring, the Netherlands’ famous flower fields become a blanket of tulips. The striking colours are overwhelmingly beautiful. I have always liked tulips and this year I planned to visit Keukenhof Garden. Unfortunately, Dutch flowering tulip fields had to close for the season to prevent the spread of the virus. Hoping to see this festival next year, I created the Holland Tulips Blanket and dedicated it to everyone who couldn’t see this wonder.
The Blanket features Cable and Lace motif, which forms an eye-catching design. Soft and chunky wool knits easily and gives a warm and pleasant result.
The pattern is worked loosely on large needles.
