Last year I was commissioned to be a guest designer in Tracey Todhunter’s crochet book. I was asked to rustle up a flower blanket pattern using gorgeous DMC Woolly. The design had to include a join-as-you-go method so after lots of uhm-ing and ah-ing I came up with this…
I’m so pleased with how the blanket turned out!
The pattern is in Tracey’s book new crochet book. And I must say, its a fabulous book! Tracey has done a marvellous job writing a book that is just perfect for learning to crochet and full of handy tips for everyone else. There are lots of how-to photographs for all of the techniques, oodles of inspiration and its a must-have for your bookshelf!

Are you making it?
The pattern is up on the ravelry database – Flower Blanket on Ravelry. Make sure to add your project with lots of deliciously gorgeous images!
The flower blanket stayed with the publishers for a while and when it returned I draped it artfully over the guest room bed. Hubble the cat found out instantly and claimed it as his. It’s a tricky business removing him what with his claws and all!
Go check out Tracey’s website and buy Tracey’s book, its fab! And, I hope you enjoy my Flower Blanket pattern. Give me a shout if you have any questions about it.
