Stylish heirloom blanket Knitting Pattern

Stylish heirloom blanket

Designer: Sarah Hazell

Snuggle up with Sarah Hazell's beautiful throw

This tricoloured blanket has a feminine look and feel, and is the perfect decorative addition to a sofa or bed, with the added benefit of being super soft too. A great accompaniment to a mug of hot chocolate and a good book on a chilly evening!

Crochet corners
Crochet is often used as a decorative border along the edge of knitted fabric. The number of knitted stitches left between each stitch the hook is put into will vary depending on the project – for Milla the crochet is worked into every stitch. When working around corners, to turn neatly you need to work three crochets into the same stitch.
