new blanket in the works

Yes, that’s right: it’s blanket season! Days are shorter, temperatures are dropping, all in all the perfect weather to sit inside and crochet a blanket, whilst snuggling under a crochet blanket! ;)

This is my favourite cotton/acrylic yarn! It’s Scheepjes Softfun, and it’s super soft (what’s in a name) and comes in the most gorgeous colours (more than 40 shades)!

The pattern I’m using is this one: the Vintage Fan Ripple blanket. I’ve seen it around last winter on Instagram and just fell in love instantly, and it’s been hogging my Ravelry queue ever since then. The pattern works up very quickly; one colour change means 1 inch added to your blanket! I hope to finish this blanket sometime next January. And when I do, I’ll make a tutorial for you as well :)
