Sorbet

Sorbet is the latest pattern from Ana Morais Soares. I had the pleasure to test this beauty during May.
The original blanket is made with a colour changing yarn. Ana used Hobbii Twister, a Cotton / Acrylic mix in sport weight.

Since I had to use up a bit of my stash, my blanket is made with DK yarn. Actually I wanted to make the same size with my thicker yarn as Ana did with her Twister (90 x 130 cm) but I guess I miscalculated. To achieve this, I would have needed 2 more repeats in the width. So my blanket is now only 80 cm wide and therefore I have also reduced the length a bit. Anyway for me it is a perfect lap blanket to sit on the couch. The colours fit perfectly in my living room and they will also look great with my – äh hubby‘s – Midnight Snowflakes (when it will be finished some day). I am happy!
