Rustic Bobble Blanket - new crochet pattern from HanJan

A great new pattern to share with you today! This blanket was designed for a very trendy young man called Samuel, he's just 5 weeks old now and is just adorable! I was trying to find a way to have a soft, fun, modern and natural looking blanket that can be treausured forever and I think I've managed it.

The pattern is all about textures and uses lots of fun bobbles and alternate use of front and back loops so that you never get bored making it!

The finished blanket as shown measures 90cm by 90cm but you can easily increase or decrease your start chain to make it any size you like. I am tempted to make a big one as a sofa throw to keep for myself!

It uses a 5mm crochet hook so grows nice and quickly and has a lovely drape to make it soft. You will need about 300g of double knit yarn in Buff, and 100g each of a Soft Grey and Moss Green, although you can use whichever colours you would like to.

If you would like the pattern then follow the link  to Etsy (pattern priced at £2.49)

An Exciting New Home for HanJan!

I am so pleased to share with you that HanJan has a new home! A place where the HanJan blog, gallery and shop can all be together under one roof - www.hanjancrochet.com

Please have a look and see what you think - it is still under construction at the moment but have put lots on already. I am hoping to have an interactive gallery too so that all the wonderful people that make my patterns can post their fab photos on there too! I already have a stash of them ready to go....
