Unicorn Dreams Blanket
Welcome to the Unicorn Dreams CAL. Over the next few weeks I will be sharing all the patterns I created and used to create this blanket.
For this blanket I used Stylecraft special DK yarn in the following colours:
Candyfloss, Apricot, Lemon, Spring green, Sherbet, Clematis, Wisteria, White with a small amount of black for the facial features.
I don't have an exact amount of wool that I used as there are so many little bits and at the time I didn't intend on starting a CAL. You will need at least 1 ball of each colour and a couple of balls of white. The blanket weighed 970g altogether.
I used a 3mm and 4mm hook.
Tension is 19 stitches x 11 rows = 10cm using 4mm hook (working in rows of DC (UK TR) )
I crochet quite tight so my squares measured approx 12cm x12cm.
The squares are all made separately and then joined together with a continuous flat braid join. I made 49 squares but you can choose to pick and mix whichever squares you like.
The overall weight of the blanket was approx. 970g and it measured 107cm x107cm.
Fancy a smaller version ?
If you've been intimidated by the large Unicorn Blanket, I've just finished this smaller version. This one is made up of 25 squares (so at lot less ends to sew in!). It measures approximately 83cm x83cm, so perfect for a baby or even a lap blanket. The join and border is exactly the same, so this might be a great size to do if you don't fancy making the full size version.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank those who bought me a coffee! I didn't expect anyone to, so it really means a lot to me. Thank you again!
