Chakra blanket


, ,

Moving away a little from charity work with this one having started making my own chakra blanket. Popped in The Button Draw in Tewkesbury for Style Craft DK light purple (crown chakra) and dark purple for third eye. I went with a light purple as I am not keen on white. 5 more colours to go, but this is a start.


The pattern is by Bella Coco called corner to corner blanket and the video can be found here:
Very easy and quick considering I only started yesterday. It would also make a nice pattern for baby blankets and bonding squares for the Leeds Children’s hospital.
