Rainbowitis – all done!

I love working with colour, so this project has been very satisfying.

It took just a little over a month, but I could have finished more quickly if I hadn’t had other projects to keep me occupied too.

I used Stylecraft Special DK – as I’ve told you before, it’s the only yarn I can buy  locally, and if you haven’t already guessed it’s a corner to corner blanket as demonstrated very well here by Mikey of the Crochet Crowd.

Here’s the sequence:

Jaffa, Sunshine, Kelly Green, Petrol, Midnight

MIdnight was followed by: Plum, Bright Pink, Matador, Tomato and Mustard

After Mustard: Lime, Lobelia, Violet and Claret.

Each colour was hooked in blocks of 9 rows each. this could be varied according to the size of the required blanket.

Two rounds make up the border – a simple two step sequence which I find is a good complement to the C2C pattern

I didn’t find it easy to photograph, but you get the general idea. I keep records of all my blankets. Browsing previous colour schemes will often spark an idea or two.

A word of warning! The two middle blocks of colour take almost a whole ball of yarn. If I had added extra blocks I would have needed a second ball without doubt.

I dye. Colour is my business and I using a variety of materials. I also enjoy enabling other creatives to enjoy their art. Some of my blogs are kept as daily records. Take a look and you will see.
