Here's one for the crocheters - get your mitts on the gorgeous texture of King Cole Yummy Chunky for this pattern. Yummy is made of 100% polyester and smooshy soft, which means it is a beauty to crochet with.
These patterns are a simple textured blanket with an eyelet detail or a blanket with a simple shell detail. I also think that these blankets would look great in King Cole Riot Chunky which has a beautiful long variegation to the colour so looks amazing in blankets.
You will need 8mm and 6mm crochet hooks for this project.
