After my last 2 blankets I have quite a bit of leftover wool. Normally I'd give it to our daughter who either uses it for French Knitting or makes bracelets out of it. As there's quite a bit left I've decided to make a stash-buster blanket.
After a bit of pc spring cleaning I found a pattern that I'd downloaded a while ago. The Spice of Life blanket from Black Sheep Wools by Sandra Paul from Cherry Heart. Sandra originally did this as a CAL (crochet along) so there are lots of photos of the completed blanket around.
Here's my start using the remnants...
As you can see there are plenty of different stitches for you to use. Each section is separated by a few rows of trebles. The pattern is well written and there are photographs in case you come across a row of stitches you've not tried before. It's a great learning tool for crocheters.
