Lakeside Forest Blanket


The colours have been chosen, the blanket started. Five crochet hexagons made. Only 94 more to go. I'm using the pattern Lakeside Forest Blanket by Lisa Clarke of Polka Dot Cottage.

The yarn is Blue Faced Leicester DK by Debbie Bliss and I'm using a size 4mm (US G/6) crochet hook. It's 100% British wool in 50g balls. The colours as follows:

Grey #502
Lilac #512
Rose #508
Willow #516
