Hollypops was designed with a special “tween” in mind (for those of you not in the know, a tween is just before we hit those joyful teenage years!), because, really the sunshine owl is just not cool anymore! LOL

The Blanket incorporates some super simple stitch-work, a little bit of overlay, a little bit of of embroidery and a whole lot of fun. For those of you who the panic stations when you read embroidery…… Deep breaths. It’s a little bit of cross stitch and you’re going to love it.

This fun and super easy pattern works up to a 135 x 135cm blanket and is made in the yummiest of South African cotton. The Cross stitch embellishments are worked in a Cotton-Rayon Blend giving your stitches a beautiful soft sheen.

It uses US terminology and is worked in rounds.

Skill level - Intermediate
