Celebrate the sun, the life giving force that shines bright in all our lives, bringing light and warmth to us all.

Solaris is a collection of squares and a border for you to create your own perfect sized blanket. Featuring designs of stars, beams and rays.
There is one 20/24 inch square, 3 10/12 inch squares, and 4 5/6 inch squares.

Use your own creativity with colours and combinations of the different size squares to create your own tribute to the sun.

There is no limit to the number or combination of colours you can use.

I have included some sample layouts in the pattern to help you.

The pattern also includes the average amount of yarn used for each square, so you will need to do a little maths to work out how much yarn you will need in total, depending on how many of each square you use, and also how many colours you use.
A large blanket made with Stylecraft Special Dk will take between 18 and 22 100g balls.
