Designed by Jane Crowfoot in a collaboration with West Yorkshire Spinners. The blanket was inspired by Jane’s trips to The Green Hotel in Mysore, India, and in particular some decorative tiles on a Victorian washstand found within the hotel.

The design uses a mixture of DK weight yarns and a crochet layering technique to achieve the 3D effect of the flowers. A repeated square motif with central flower are combined with half and quarter motifs to achieve the square shape of the blanket.

Stitches used in this design are ch, ss, dc, htr, tr, dtr, dc2tog, tr3tog, dtr3tog and bpdc.

Currently only available in a kit.
