It took me longer to decide on the pattern and colour scheme for this project than it did to actually make. Oh, the pressure! Oh, the self-imposed pressure to make a wedding present for one of my very best friends. The pressure to make something they love as much as I loved making it. Oh, the commitment! Oh, the commitment it takes to start on such a big project. When you spend a fair bit of time with any crochet project it is preferable to love it. Of course I loved making this big, warm and cosy wool blanket. And of course I wanted to keep it for myself once it was done!
* The yarn is Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 10ply in Cream and Sunflower with a 5mm hook
* The chevron pattern is by Babylove Brand
* It’s 150cm wide
* I used six balls of each colour, with a little leftover (each ball is 200gm)
To Michelle and Tim, it doesn’t get much better than being married to your best friend. I can’t wait to see what the future brings for you both. I hope it’s nothing but happiness for many years to come. Thank you for asking me to be a part of your special day!
