Waves Blanket

I’m an absolute sucker for thick yarn and a big hook.

Give me this any day over fiddly 4ply.

So when Cygnet Yarns asked me to make something with their new colours of chenille chunky I jumped at the chance!

I love this yarn!

This yarn is so so quick to work up, and the balls are huge – 200g so you can make a lot from one ball.

So onto the new colours.

They have some new spring colours, and I was dying to get my hands on them.

I’d used, Petrol Mustard and Gunmetal in the Lanzarote waves blanket.

Then cranberry for the cushion cover.

Mustard and Aubergine in the cowl.

The new spring colours, the Misty grey, Sky, honeydew, sorbet and Clover – all were just too good to choose from.

So, designer head on – and I chose to match some of the new with the existing colours.

2 yellows and 2 blues, with a grey – you can’t beat it!
