Geometric Lace headed to Florida! Love this one with the floral detail.
The borders on this motif absolutely square the edges – check out the motif without any adjacent hexes attached! The petals are much more prominent.
Because of the color palette, I often get asked what yarn I use and how I choose colors.
I use 100% acrylic yarn that is available in the craft store – Lion Brand, Caron, Red Heart, and Hobby Lobby! I choose colors by leaving it up to God and the educated. What? hehe – I look at flowers, animals, and at art, products on the market, clothes… everything! Inspiration is everywhere.
To work this blanket, I choose a main color family for each corner (this particular one has green in the center also). I work a motif and then I measure it, then factoring in the border, I estimate how many motifs I need to go across. I start working in the corner and then when I get about 40% up the side, I start transitioning in the other corner’s color. I try to put light colors next to lights and darks next to darks, that way everything looks as smooth as I can.
The border is my normal lace, with a cool wavy twist because of the petals. Love it! 🙂
