New Blanket Plans - Bright and Bold

Work has been crazily busy and very stressful lately.  But this weekend I've managed to relax a bit and make a start on a new blanket.  A funny thing to start when we've had the most beautiful warm sunny weather this weekend!

I know I should be carrying on with my blue stripy blanket but I wanted to try this out!  I was given the yarn for my birthday and Christmas in December and I have plans for a bright and bold colour-block blanket.

Looking for bright bold colour-block crochet blanket ideas?  Read more to see the start of one!

I've been trying out a couple of things to work out the sizing, and I'll be starting again with the red and blue to make the middle square bigger, but I've got a good feeling about it so far!

The picture gives a good idea of how it will look, the general feel of it, I think - I'm already excited to see it progress.

The yarn is King Cole Bamboo Cotton which I absolutely love working with.  It gives a lovely smooth finish, so I use it a lot for amigurumi.  It's also what I made my Japanese Flower Coasters out of - and I'm using those colours again here, with a few additions.

I hope to show you more soon(ish)!
