Teal dreams is a blanket in my favourite colours this season - teal, blue and brown.
It is a variation on the traditional granny square blanket, using 'diamonds' in the centre rather than standard granny stitches. Using this method the squares can be made any rectangular shape. I mixed the squares with rectangles of double width, but you could try any combination to make a unique blanket design.
I used 5 colours of yarn, in blues and teals with a dark brown joining colour and I have written the pattern for the colours so you can see how I constructed it. You do not have to follow the colour scheme or work to the size I did. However, if you wish to adapt you will need to adjust your yarn quantities.
I used Drops Karisma Superwash 50g/100m/109yds per ball. As made the pattern uses 3 balls of A, 4 of B, 5 of C, 7 of D and 7 of E to make a blanket approx 1.5m/5' square
Written in English and US terms, and charted, with some photo tutorials. Pattern runs to 8 pages.

Like many I took a couple of decades off my knitting and crochet whilst my working life took over, but now I am catching up. I always have a hook or pair of needles close by; my fingers do not like to rest. After reacquainting myself with my old hobbies, I progresed to creating my own designs. It seemed a natural progression for me, as did running crochet workshops in the NW of England.
Those who have tried my designs will know that I love creating simple designs that look very effective, after all life doesn't need to be complicated! And I understand that many people like a bit of television or music knitting/crochet, so the easier they are the better it is to enjoy the world around you whilst enjoying your craft.
