This blanket design was initially inspired by an image of a printed cushion cover Jane found in a magazine, but having visited the Tipu Sultan’s Summer Palace near Mysore in India earlier this year she was inspired to look at the design again and link it into her Mysore Collection.

Jane feels that the design reflects the wonderful carved and painted wooden pillars and painted friezes found within the building, but the original version also retains its slightly Scandinavian looking design, which she originally felt echoed traditional stranded patterns and would be the perfect cosy feeling winter blanket. The blue and pink colourway echoes the fabulous bright colours Jane has found on her trips to India.

Stitches used in this design are ch, ss, dc, htr, tr, dtr, dc2tog, tr2tog, tr3tog, dtr3tog and dtr4tog.
