This textured blanket is based on a classical Arabic design, the calming blue inspired by the changing shades of light on water.

● Stylecraft Special DK, 100% acrylic, 100g/295m/322yds
Yarn A: Duck Egg 1820 x 4 balls
Yarn B: Storm Blue 1722 x 4 balls
● 4mm hook

You can use any DK weight yarn to achieve a similar effect.

Exact tension is not critical for this design.

Finished blanket measures 91 x 114cm/36 x 45in. Size can be altered by adding or subtracting squares from the pattern. Adding squares may require more yarn.
