The Big Reveal

Issue: 69 | Category: Issue 69, News

Secret Garden

The third and final part of Sabina Poonwassie's stunning mystery project is revealed this month, so if you've missed parts 1 and 2, now's the time to catch up!

It's the size of a beach towel so it’s ideal to throw over your sun lounger or garden bench, but you could easily keep hooking to make it large enough to make a cheerful picnic blanket, or use as a bedspread.

Alternatively, as you will see once you start hooking, the blanket is made in three parts with each third having an individual character – Summer Sky, Buttercups In The Grass and Garden In Bloom. Each of these “thirds” of the blanket could be made separately and then folded over into squares to make three different gorgeous summery cushions.

Part One

We began this exciting mystery blanket from Sabina Poonwassie in issue 67. A riot of colour with an abundance of blooms, this blanket is hooked in cool cottons to make the perfect summer accessory. There is only one motif to crochet in part 1, but the colours chosen create a beautifully pixelated gradient of colour across the blanket from cool blues to firey hues. The first part of this fun blanket sees you create the colourful ground, which will be embellished in the next two issues.


Part Two

This issue (68) we begin to embellish the flat ground with glorious three-dimensional flowers.


Part Three

In our third and final stage, we’re adding the final flowers to the “blooming” part of the blanket, then hooking a pretty petal edging all around for a picture perfect finish. This cool cotton blanket will be your ideal summer accessory, just the thing for lying back on and enjoying the sunshine!
