Soft as a Cloud - new pattern.

Last week (to coincide with May's Newsletter) a new pattern was released!

This one  was pretty fun to make - not to mention is was a quick one!

I was inspired by all the rainbow projects I've been seeing online, many a response to the global pandemic we are currently experiencing. If you'd like to see some of them - have a look at my previous rainbow round up - Rainbow Connections 

The cloud uses 'Sweetheart Soft' by Scheepjes. This happened to be in my stash along with av royal blue, so it also served as part of my ongoing 'use what you have on hand' mindset. A similar fluffy yarn could be substituted, and although it's hard to see the stitches, I could feel them fairly easily. 

Just quietly - how good would it look with the Fruit Cup fade! Due to the pandemic, I don't have access to the blanket at the moment to get a photo together - so I'll have to work on that later. 

Thanks again for reading! I hope you are all safe and well.

The Fruit Cup Fade

The Fruit Cup Fade is one of my newest kits available at I've been posting about it everywhere except here! 

The pattern was posting in sections, a bit like a CAL, and each of the sections can be found on the Yarnish Blog. A single PDF document as since been created for those who'd like a copy of the pattern to keep for themselves, and thirdly a kit has been made! The blanket fades from one colour to the next, and is worked on the bias as a corner to corner moss stitch blanket. The blanket fits an Australian size single bed, but can be adjusted following standard corner to corner technique. 

The pattern uses Cicibebe yarn, which has a cool fair isle/speckled effect, which worked up like little flowers in small items, but a totally different look with this corner to corner moss stitch! I'm very keen to see some other variations, so please let me know if you do make one for your self, by tagging on Instagram with #fruitcupfade or adding a project on Ravelry.

Thanks for reading, 

Happy Crocheting
