My wonderful friend Alitzah has designed the most glorious flower blanket which is the perfect addition to my Gardening with Lucy range
"The Cosmos blanket, like its namesake, is beautiful in its simplicity. An excellent project for those who have mastered the basics of crochet and are looking for a stunning next project to develop their skills even further. The eight petalled flower motif with its central disc is inspired by the cosmos bipinnatus, a member of the sunflower family, that grace the gardens throughout summer and well into autumn.
There a 2 colour combinations available:
a stunning vintage, cottage garden palette which call to mind the work of the ceramicist Clairice Cliff
or a beautiful palette of sea shades of blues, turquoises, greens and grey
The kit contains enough yarn for a blanket made up of 72 squares, eight squares by nine, with a simple double crochet border. It measures approximately 112cm x 126cm after blocking; making the perfect size to drape across your knee whilst enjoying an evening in the garden or park when the sun starts the fade.
We really hope you enjoy crocheting this gorgeous blanket.
Each Cosmos kit contains
16 x 50g balls of Scheepjes Stone Washed blend of 78% cotton and 22% acrylic in the following quantities:
