It’s FINISHED!!!! *insert happy dance* πŸ’ƒ woooo! I started this blanket back in October, & even though i’ve loved every one of those squishy stitches, it was starting to feel like the never ending blanket.

This blanket isn’t made using a pattern, just the c2c (corner to corner) crochet stitch. It ended up being 132cm (51″) square. Perfect lap or throw size blanket!

The yarn is from Bendigo Woollen Mills, in their Bloom range, & the colour i used is Rust. I used approx 6 x 200g balls. So that’s 1.2kg of yarn. It’s 100% pure Australian wool, & its lovely to work with.

i love the colours & how they subtly blend into each other, no harsh sudden changes. It just beautifully transitions from one colour to the next.

i chose the name “Autumn Jewel” because of these gorgeous colours. Perfect, as it’s Autumn here in Australia! πŸ‚ 

Just a simple sc (single crochet) border all around twice. I was going to do a more detailed border, but it became too messy & confusing with the already busy colours & texture.

The sc border just gives it a nice finish & frame 😊

Linen floor cushion from The Dusty Poppy

And my two beautiful babies, Layla & Wolf spent many hours snuggled under each side of the blanket while i worked! It’s baby & snuggle approved πŸ‘Œβ€

And that’s it! I had a lot of fun making this blanket, i hope you love it as much as i do!

Love Nat xx
