Finally I can show you the project I worked on from the mid December last year until mid January: Talavera!
Talavera is a design by my friend Ana Morais Soares from One Skein of Love. She was asked by the Simply Crochet Magazine to design a blanket for a Cal.
The Cal has just started and part 1 is published. For further information either have a look at issue 122 of the Simply Crochet Magazine, their Ravelry page or website.
It was quite a challenge to finish this beauty in more or less 4 weeks! But so worth the effort!
For her design Ana used Caron Simply Soft, an Aran weight. As you might know Aran is not my favorite yarn weight. So I went for Stylecraft Special DK.
I already showed my colour scheme a few days ago, which – again- was inspired by a mood board of Pipin Poppycrock.
I mainly followed Ana’s colour placement but – partly by accident and partly on purpose – I have made some colour changes. So here my notes:
