New design: Fluffy White Clouds - the crochet version

Over the Easter break I released a brand new pattern, and today I've finally found five minutes to tell you all about it!

Several years ago I released my Fluffy White Clouds baby blanket knitting pattern, and since then it's been my best-selling pattern. Not wanting crocheters to be left out, my latest pattern is Fluffy White Clouds – the crochet version.

The blanket is perfect for spring, and in the traditional colours of sky blue and cream make a beautiful unisex blanket, or you can change the colours to match a nursery or the preferences of the people you're making the blanket for. One of my testers, Jo, made a fantastic high contrast version in cream and black.

Fluffy White Clouds – the crochet version is made using the mini corner to corner technique. The pattern includes a full colour chart, as well as written instructions for the colour changes. In addition, the pattern features a photo tutorial on the technique, making the project suitable for ambitious beginners.

The sample is crocheted in Paintbox Yarns Simply Aran,* a machine-washable, easy-care yarn that is perfect for babies. The yarn comes in 64 colours, so you'll have plenty of options!

The pattern is available now from my Ravelry store, and until the end of April (11.59pm BST, Monday 30th April 2018) you can get the pattern for just £3.**

Fancy some company while crocheting your blanket? I'm hosting a Blanket Along in my Ravelry group. The Blanket Along will run until the end of June 2018 and there will be prizes. Why not head over there to take a look?***
