Stonewashed Painted Roses

This pattern has been on quite the journey with me.  I first came up with the motif design and the original baby blanket way back in 2014.  You can find the pattern here: Painted Roses Blanket.  I've made a few different variations since too, including my 'Faded' version two years later.  Well, it turns out I just can't leave this one alone, as I'm back at it again.

This time, it was the yarn that drew me in.  The lovely Stonewashed yarn by Scheepjes had been around a while now, but it took me ages to actually give it a whirl.  Once I did, I was hooked - if you'll pardon the pun!  I had a hunch that the Painted Roses squares would look really lovely in this yarn and I have to say I think it's a pretty wonderful pairing.

After that little experiment I just had to do more and so I started playing with colour combinations and well, one thing lead to another!  I couldn't quite decide on which of my favourites to go for, so in the end I decided not too choose and rustled up two baby blankets instead.

I don't have news of any babies arriving in the family just yet but I guess I'll be prepared if that happens.  In the meantime though, I may just have them hanging around and enjoy the eye candy.

Now, I know a lot of you have been watching my progress on Instagram and patiently waiting for me to fill you in on the colour and yardage details, so I've got all the info on these two blankets here for you...

The above information will be helpful, especially if you are looking to re-create these blankets.  I know some of you will want to come up with your own colour schemes and maybe change the size up too, so I've also got a more detailed breakdown of the yardage on it's way too.  I'm compiling all the figures for that at the moment, and I'll hope to get that all updated to the pattern soon for you!
