I've finished my Something Pretty blanket! I am snuggling under it even as I write these words, and I love it!
The blanket is only single bed size, but it does fit that size rather nicely as you can see in the picture. I made176 squares in total - 16 rows each 11 sqaures long.
I have crocheted the squares together using double crochet (that took ages and really made my hands hurt - I think I should have used a smaller hook size!
The inspiration to make this blanket came from a lovely version which I saw on Coco Rose Diaries, but the original pattern is from Millie Makes.
Although I loved the version I saw on Coco Rose Diaries, my colour choices tend to be richer and deeper colours - I guess I just have a different 'colour personality'! It always fascinates me how people's colour choices differ. I do love my pink and purple and you can see that here - 2 shades of purple and 2 shades of pink involved, then some green and blue to stop it from being too completely girly for my taste!
For those of you who are interested in specifics, I used the following yarn:
Rowan Pure Wool DK in shades
Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK in shades
Sublime Baby Cashmerino Silk DK in shades
346 Dusty Pink
