Cheer up a dreary day with four gorgeous new blanket patterns from Faye Walsh of Little Dove Designs. Worked in soft Cygnet Yarns DK acrylic, the colour combos evoke sunny days at the seaside and showcase different stitch patterns. A fun bobble blanket is full of texture and crisp bright stripes. “I gave it a simple no-fuss white edging to make the stripes pop and the texture stand out,” says Faye. Or try her borderless chevron design with colourful stripes alternating with white. For crocheters after a bit of a challenge, don’t miss the cluster stitch blanket, bursting with colour changes, while a pretty eyelet stitch blanket, in a cool, calm palette, is perfect for a beginner.
