Bushel Blanket Kit by Fay Dashper Hughes
We now offer handy kits of this pattern. All kits include enough yarn to make this glorious blanket along with a limited edition button badge and a fab project bag to keep it all safe. Happy knitting!
The Bushel Crochet Blanket pattern is designed by our friend Fay Dashper-Hughes. Click here if you’d like to buy just the pattern, as we don’t currently stock it.
Bushel makes use of all 20 colours of our stunningly heathered Appledore pallet, and you can choose from a lap blanket size or a throw that is large enough to fit the bottom of a double bed. Whether making the lap blanket or the throw, the construction is the same. Worked from the centre out, the Bushel Blankets use a simple but effective two-row repeat through the colour sequence to one end, and then the colour sequence is mirrored at the other end. Finally, a simple double crochet border is added to bring all the colours together.
