Yay! The Sunny Spread by Ellen Gormley – another design ticked off my list of amazing things to crochet. 😀 This one had been sitting in my Ravelry library for a long time, so I’m happy I was finally able to do it.
WARNING: Lots of pictures
I didn’t make 64 squares as the pattern called for – just 9 as I was making a small blanket. I had so much fun crocheting them 🙂
I used the leftover yarn from the baby blanket I made a while back, and believe it or not I still have yarn left after finishing this project! I loveeee this 10 ply cotton yarn from Bendigo Woollen Mills – definitely a treat for anyone who loves yarn.
After I finished the squares I blocked them. Then I used Attic24’s wonderful joining method to join them – thank you Lucy for the tutorial!
Here is how it looks all together:
Okay, as if all of that wasn’t amazing enough, there was also the border!
Round 4: this round was done in teal because I didn’t think I would have enough white yarn for it. And I really like the effect it’s created 🙂 Pictures show it close up first.
Round 5: the end!
Here is another picture to show the “wavy” border up close, while blocking:
And a final picture with my feet for scale 🙂
It’s in my car protecting the steering wheel when the famous Aussie sun hits (or should I say, heats!), and it’s doing a magnificent job 🙂 Mission accomplished!
