...And A Little More Progress...

My daisy blanket is the size of a lapghan now:

(I'm thinking of sewing down those curling petals when I come to weave in the ends.)


This is such a lovely, relaxing blanket to make...crochet as meditation...

For those of you who don't yet have the pattern for the daisy square in the middle, you can find it here.

EDITED TO ADD:
I've just updated the pattern link for the daisy square pattern.
You can also find it on Ravelry where it's listed as the Easy Daisy Granny.

I wouldn't sew down the petals, if I were you. I think you'd lose some of the liveliness and 3D-ness of them if you sewed them down. They don't curl too badly, imo.

Love your Daisy blanket. I would leave the petals. I like the 3D look of them. Great color combination. What is the brand and color name of the variegated yarn that you are using?

Thanks everyone!

babyfacedoll411,
The variegated yarn is Cleckheaton Country Print 9 which, sadly, seems to have been discontinued.

Here are the colour codes for all the yarns I used in the blanket. (I misplaced a lot of the labels so I used the yarn tables at the Cleckheaton and Patons sites to work out the codes. I'm pretty sure they're accurate, though.)

Patons Totem 4276

Purple:
Patons Totem 4273

Dark Olive:
