Terracotta Garden Granny Square Blanket

Some time ago (well a long time ago) I saw this blanket on Lucy's blog Attic24 and loved it. Knew immediately that I wanted to make one four our couch, but in our living room's colours, mainly terracottas, browns, with accent of cream. And as I had already worked with Catania, a nice cotton yarn that comes in lots of colourways, I knew I would use this one. Don't remember if I had these colours at home already or if I got them then. I hooked happily away a bit, took these two pictures (a try to use an opal plastic bucket as a light box *lol*)



and then I forgot about it because there were other projects that were more important to me...


Hooked a bit now and then but not much and not "seriously" until yesterday. Got all the circles and squares out that I have made so far, smiled and hooked! So lovely!!!



I think I will join four squares with the same fourth row, and then join these with a row of grey, inspirated by the living room tiles. Just not sure yet if I will join four squares that are the same or four that have just the center and outer row in common. But I have enough time to decide on that :-)


Here is what I had this morning:



Thanks for coming over!

  2. Thank you Laoi! I am busy with my hook today, too, it is a cool day and it is nice to sit on the sofa surrounded by three white furry "heating bottles" and crocheting...

  5. Tina, those colours are absolutely gorgeous. They make me think of coffee, cream, chocolate cake and cinnamon sticks - all very scrumptious. This is going to be so beautiful... x
