I have loved revisiting this crochet blanket, because this pumpkin blanket started it's life as a alternative colourway to our 'Midnight Garden blanket', with this blanket we have use rich, warm, vibrant colours that reflect the Autumnal tones, from oranges, purples, greens and neutrals.
THE STORY OF OUR PUMPKIN BLANKET
After a few moments of deciding to finish those Pesky WIP's, I picked up my unfinished blanket and decided that actually there was more to it! Or at least there could be. Autumn was on its way, and maybe this blanket could be my inspiration for a new pattern. So it was, that the pumpkin patch came to life. Continuing the work I had already made, I decided that the last chapter would change and grow some more.
I wanted to take this blanket design and combine our first blankets and create something that was a little more complex and challenging with more 3d stitches including Pumpkins & mushrooms, frameworks, textures... and mini projects to keep you motivated, which was working textured granny squares to perk your interest and to keep motivating you.
For me, its easy to get bored when something goes on forever. But when you break in down, it can make each new chapter exciting and something your looking forward to. Which is how I felt. I had to stop adding different elements. I really did enjoy this blanket, and so far is perhaps my favourite.
We've had wonderful constructive feedback through out our other makes, which is a great motivator.
The blanket has video support from chapter 5 ( which is supporting the alternative chapters which have been added on to support the complexity's from chapter 5 to chapter 8)
The ability to make is not just a skill of the hand, but a power of the mind to still the world around you and to soothe the inner soul.
