Ruby Rosanna Cot Blanket

Project:  Ruby Rosanna Cot Blanket

I’ve just started a new crochet project – hurrah!  I’m using my Rosanna crochet pattern to make a little cot blanket.  The original block is worked all in one colour but, for this project, I’m working the petals in a lovely ruby red shade.

The yarn I’m using is Stylecraft Special Aran and I have to say, so far, I love it.  Its 100% acrylic, so great for popping in the washing machine, and yet has a lovely soft feel.  Its very easy to work with but I do wish there were a lot more colours to chose from!  Despite the limited colour palette I can foresee lots more projects using this yarn – it’s just lovely and has a nice price tag too.

I’ve made a few blankets using this pattern and just love how squishy and tactile the flower is.  I quite fancy making one in a dark, pewter grey with bright coloured flowers.  The blocks work up nice and quickly with a 5.5mm (I) hook and aran weight yarn.  You can also work the block in Worsted, Light Worsted or DK but the size will be a little different.

I’ve still a long way to go with this project so I’m ensconced on the sofa with Hubble, the cat, on my feet enjoying a bit of crochet, planning Christmas decoration patterns and recovering from my overenthusiastic jog in the pouring rain earlier.  Hope you are enjoying some midweek crochet too.

Happy Hooking!
