May Blossom and Autumn Gold Blankets

I’ve updated this post to tell you that the pattern for the May Blossom and Autumn Gold blankets, which I put on here in April, has had a complete makeover.

The original pattern had been saved on a rubbishy pdf reader which caused the file to do silly things and run to over 60 pages, and although it was a free pattern, it certainly used up a whole lot of precious paper stocks!

I’ve now taken the time to sort that out, and after a fair amount of blood, sweat and tears have managed to produce an altogether neater and more user friendly document.

There are a couple of more photos as well.

The pattern is now available to purchase here


I know that a lot of you have already made this pattern and I can’t tell you how exciting it is to see your results posted on Instagram.

It has apparently been a godsend for a lot of people who were isolated or stuck at home during the recent lockdown. So many of you have told me how it has kept you occupied and sane at a time of uncertainty and worry. That makes me feel as if I’ve done something useful with my time – thank you so much.

I hope this pattern will continue to engage people as we slowly emerge from the crisis and become a favourite for a long time to come.

And meanwhile, there is another one in the pipeline!

I’ve been involved in textile design and embroidery for many years, and recently become passionate about crochet too. I was originally an art teacher and embroidery tutor, then created a small business publishing greeting cards. It became a successful family partnership and we are finally handing the reins over to our daughter and stepping back a little. Now is the time for me to enjoy exploring and learning -and sharing - all that this wonderful world of textiles can offer me.

  1. Such a beautiful pattern and the colours are stunning. Thank you for sharing, I’m often short of inspiration. I’m really looking forward to making this for myself.
