Gerbera Daisy Blanket – A true delight!
Once you buy the pattern, you can see my modifications in this post! 🙂
I cannot describe the total joy that this was to make. Each petal, each leaf, joining them, all the colors… Wow!
bySol’s pattern is a beautiful concept. I made the following adjustments – mostly to account for the thicker yarn and larger hook.
Decrease from 16 petals to 12, and “anchor” petals to one another by interrupting the chain up to slip stitch through a DC at the back side of the previous petal. Work a picot at the corner of each leaf (Chain 3, SC in “base” stitch at bottom of Chain 3). Work border round through back loop only to make leaves “pop.”
See the backside of the motif below. You can see the anchor at the petals.
I could not take enough progress photos of this piece… Just beautiful. Thinking of doing a basic granny square blanket with these colors!
I would make this a million more times if I had the chance. ❤
