I learnt how to do this stitch from a tutorial by “Hopeful Honey”, it’s become one of my favourites, Kiran. It uses US crochet terms.


Perfection as always !

Marion, Your flower squares are always stunning, and these are right up there in their stun value.

These bright and cheerful squares will be so happy in a blanket.

Although not overly fond of green, your mint green is BEAUTIFUL, Marion!! ......and topping it off with those delightful flowers..........GORGEOUS squares!!

Could you share the brand of your green yarn please, Marion. It  is just so pretty.  :))

It’s So Crafty DK yarn from Aldi, which is a discount supermarket chain in the Uk and Germany, Bev. I normally order it online and admit I was a bit startled at how green it was when it arrived but I’m very pleased how it looks now!

Diagonal knit squares with stripes, in red and blue (hint hint, red and blue together makes purple ;)

Kiran, your diagonal stipes are perfect for this theme.  And yes, blue and red do make purple for the CoM.  And did you know that blue by itself makes Gloria smile  :) haha ... xo

Hahaha...you're making me laugh, Glo.  :))

I love red and blue together....also sometimes with a little white thrown in.  :))

I LOVE how you've mixed the striping up in your squares....gives us more to enjoy, Kiran.  :))

2 colours and 4 very different looking squares that look great together…..and all so neat!

Oh, Kiran, you are a clever one!   I love the stripes, but maybe even more love the reference to red and blue making purple!  So fun.

I just love striped diagonals - great knitting Kiran X

Of all the blankets I've made, this one has proved to be the most troublesome by far. I ordered the variegated yarn online but when it arrived the colours were duller than I was expecting so I didn't think the pattern I had planned would work very well. I then ordered some co-ordinating plain colours to brighten it up a bit and started on another blanket idea. I hadn't got very far when I realised I didn't like how that was working out either! What I've ended up with I pretty much made up as I went along and, to be honest, I'm glad to have finished it. When things don't go to plan I have to remind myself that we are ultimately making these blankets to keep children warm - not to be judged in a competition!

To use up some of the leftover variegated, I've taken a leaf out of Karen's book and made a selection of two strand hats.

I've still got more left over but I think I've had enough of it for the time being.
