Bushel Blanket Kit
We now offer handy kits of this pattern. All kits include enough yarn to make this glorious blanket along with the pattern, 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 Daspher-Hughes. Click here if you’d like to buy just the pattern, without the yarn.
Bushel makes use of all 20 colours 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 two-row repeat through the colour sequence to one end and then mirror the colour sequence at the other end.
Finally, a simple double crochet border is added to bring all the colours together.
