Pastel Color Bomb Blanket


Yes, it took me ages, I know... Actually, this blanket was finished a few weeks ago. Somehow I forgot to take pictures of it. I don't know why, 'cause I really think it's a beauty...


I love all the shades of pink. And I love that it's kind of pastel, although that's not my usual choice of colors... The yellow center is a nice contrast, I think.



It's very soft too (and heavy!!). I used 3 kinds of yarn, all 100 % cotton. Catania Grande (for the center), Creative Cotton and Drops Paris. I used a size 5,5 hook.


It matches perfectly with the Flower Square (Stroller) Blanket I made earlier. Same edging and colors. Think I'm gonna make a bigger edition too, someday... You can find a tutorial for the squares here.


And the tutorial for the edging is to be found here


I must say, looking at these pictures I'm quite proud. I think it's going to be in my Etsy shop (I'm opening in Januari 2014), but it might be hard to part from. Maybe I should make more...

Have an active wednesday!

  4. Hi Jenn, I am your latest follower from India. I just loved your blog and the "color bombs". Your choice of color is just fantastic. And your blog has a very happy and cheery feel. Loved the circle in a square tutorial and also your idea of doing away with the TV!! :)

  5. Jenn this is stunning! I am using the same idea in a throw, but with very different colours and joining method. I was so tempted to do a "Le Casa de Coto" throw in cream and red but eventually settled for something more colourful. It is such effortless hooking, I am enjoying every moment of it. Your work is just so gorgeous!

  8. It's very lovely! I know it takes ages... I'm working on a blanket/throw myself now.
    Are you going to use it?

  9. Thanx! I'm planning on opening my Etsy shop in January, so I don't think I'll use it myself.

  13. Hello Jenn,
    I emailed you earlier today but I'm not sure if my email went through so I thought I would try again, just in case.
    Firstly, your blog inspires me to create to NO END!! Thank you for the bright colours and immense inspiration you've passed on!
    I am just dying to start the PASTEL COLOUR BOMB BLANKET. I was wondering if you have a pattern for it and and how much of each colour you used for the blanket. I have purchased some yarn but I'm wondering if I have enough. Thank you!!!
