Geometric Lace 13

Off to Illinois to arrive in time for a 15th wedding anniversary 🙂

Check out the pattern for sale on Ravelry and Etsy, or look into buying this blanket as a custom, handmade item.

This aqua and blue palette is definitely popular. Feminine without being too flirty.

As usual, I create a concept photo including a representation of the colors. Here, I decided to make a hex for every shade. I pulled every aqua and blue in my stash! The recipient has a very sophisticated and clean living space, so I added a cool grey, and I used a soft white for the border.

Progress shot – sometimes they grow quite organically. This one sprawled out!

      Thank you – yes, in my mind every blanket must have straight edges, although there’s a lot of pretty, more organic looking work out there! I just need my rectangle and square… 🙂

    Hi, I love this blanket and have just downloaded the pattern from your Etsy store. Please can you tell me what type of yarn/wool you use please? Is it Aran or double knitting? I’m in the UK so don’t know if these wool types translate so apologies in advance if they don’t!

      Hi! On my blankets I use “worsted weight” yarn… For me in the US, this is the weight in between Aran and DK. I use a size K (6.5mm) for it. Thank you for your support! Email me any time for pattern clarification. 🙂
