Bonfire Wedding Blanket

Project Description

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I created this for my cousin, Eleni, as a wedding gift! Gorgeous in the colors of her big day...yellow and orange. Her mother and I are very close and I have received many a handmade gift from her during the milestones in my own life, so choosing a wedding gift for her daughter was easy! The hash tag (#) pattern is so common in technology, I just had to design something that is relevant for today’s young people. The clusters are at an angle lending to the hash tag pattern. Lightweight, colorful, reversible and easy to crochet with a one row pattern repeat. Gradient yarn produces a stripe pattern without changing colors! The edge is a simple 4 row single crochet, but feel free to substitute any edge you like!
