As soon as the calendar turns to January I reach for blankets. Scotland can be pretty damp, cold, and grey so staying cosy becomes the top priority! The Hap Blanket is one of Ysolda’s patterns that I’ve actually not made yet, but I plan to change that before spring arrives. There are some truly beautiful variations, so plenty of inspiration if you’re tempted to do the same.
The colours of this blanket by Butterfly Brain make me so happy! It shows how lovely it is too with a solid centre.
Mcarrel’s gorgeous version was made as a baby blanket, with perfect bright colours for a new little one.
This two colour version with a solid centre by earthchick is one of my favourites…and would look perfect in my livingroom in case she wants to rehome it(!)
The combination of green and pink in nelago’s Hap Blanket is incredible. I love the way she’s incorporated a gradient in the pink, it makes for such a striking edging!
