two blanket in the works


good to see you!

my black blanket is almost finished! at the moment i’m working on a simple green border with a mossgreen yarn, but i do not get the color right in the picture. for years i have wanted a black blanket, first i was a bit reluctant for such a large black cloth, but i am very happy with the result and how it looks. 

sunday afternoon i started sewing together the squares and the result was a large black tangle in which i could find a beginning or end. the only thing i could do was loosen everything. monday afternoon i started again and after a few hours i had all the squares sewn together. 

black blanket by elisabeth andrée


the black blanket is made of 24 lacy squares with a dot.

when i published my pattern for the square, alessandra responded very enthusiastically. 

” They are great in their simplicity!!!! How beautiful will be a huge blanket in multiple colours????? YUMMY!!!!!

Thank you Andree’ for sharing the pattern with us!!!!! PINNED!!!!! ;oD

thanks ale and i think that is a good idea, although the multi colored blanket won’t be huge. 

with the black yarn i had bought some balls in various pastels, but not enough so i “had to buy” more colors. your ideas cost me money, ale 😉 

one of the new colors i have misjudged, i thought it was a bright orange and it appears to be neon orange. neon is nice, but in this case it was not really the intention.

fortunately it turned out to be useful since the other colors together look so sweet that you almost get a toothache, so the orange gives the whole a boost.
