Christmas and tradition go together hand in hand and our Christmas Folk blanket mixes both of these lovely things. This is a festive colourway for the popular 'Portuguese Tile Blanket', a tried and tested Woman’s Weekly pattern. We’ve been inspired by the traditional folk art of eastern Europe and Scandinavia to create this wonderful Christmas themed blanket. The folk art from these regions combines simple and repetitive designs with a bright colour palette, consisting mostly of blues, greens, reds, whites and creams. The floral motifs of our blanket and the palette of reds, greens and cream sum up this wonderful Christmassy style!
The Christmas Folk Blanket Colour Pack contains the 6 balls of Emu Classic DK yarn you need to complete the blanket, plus a printed copy of the pattern, a colour conversion chart.
These are the 100g balls of Emu Classic DK yarn (282m/100% acrylic) that are included:
2 x Cream (102) 1 x Glacier (143) 1 x Ivy (145) 1 x Seafoam (144) 1 x Ruby (120) 1 x Garnet (118)
You will also need: a 4mm (UK 8 - US G/6) crochet hook.
The completed blanket measures approximately 104 x 104cm/41 x 41in
So I got this yarn to make the Christmas Baubles that I had seen on the "over the hook" Instagram account. I'm very new to crochet and wasn't sure how I'd get on . Well the glittery yarn is fab and the tutorial was so easy to follow. Ive made lots of the Baubles. Love it . Thank you x
