Vintage Florals Blanket

I’m so pleased to have been able to write up this pattern for publication, once more retrospectively.

Some of you will already know it as the Sister Blanket 2, and indeed will have followed my scratchy instructions on Instagram from a few months ago, to make your own version.

However, after quite a number of new followers started asking if there was a pattern, I thought I’d give it a go, and also give it a more descriptive name. I think it deserves that!

It’s a whole different ball game trying to write a pattern by looking at the finished article, rather than taking notes during a work in progress.

Firstly, I’ve had to “guess” the yarn quantities, so I hope I’m somewhere near right! I’ve tweaked the pattern just a little and I think everything is hunky dory, but I’ll rely on you, dear readers to shout out if you come across a mistake.

It’s a big blanket, big enough to cover the top of a double bed, but also a generous wrap for cosy sofa nights.

I loved working with the colours, so soft and pretty. Pinks are a colour I’m drawn to, but always in conjunction with other shades, and I have a lot in my yarn stash which I love to look at and admire, but which rarely get a look in when I’m crocheting. This is their time now.

Anyway, after a good number of days glued to my computer screen, and ending up that horrible dry eye syndrome, I can finally put it to bed and click “ publish”.

The pattern is available to purchase

HERE on Etsy

and I’ve added in the pattern for the Little Gem Blanket too, as an extra, since both blankets share the same origin. So you get two for the price of one!

Lastly, I put a little video tutorial on Instagram when I made the blanket a few months ago. It’s for one of the flower granny squares, and I’m happy to share it again on here for you. (Video has no sound)

So, that’s another blanket done and dusted. The next one is going to be a little bit different, and it is on my hook right now.

Thank you for reading, trying my patterns and giving me feedback. It is all so appreciated.

Happy crocheting! x

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. Oh! I have just bought the vintage florals blanket and I’m so excited to have found it it is lovely. Thank you.

  2. I linked to Etsy from this page and paid more than on Ravelry because I thought I was getting the Little Gem pattern too but there’s only one download that look like it is just the Vintage Florals pattern. Am I missing something? Thank you

    1. Hi Gail, the bonus pattern for the little Gem starts on page 13 of the Vintage Florals, but it’s not quite as detailed as the newer Gem Pattern Collection on Ravelry and Etsy.
      The Ravelry version of the Vintage Florals has both patterns too, by the way.

  3. I would like to purchase this pattern but have had problems with Etsy in the past. Is there anyway I can do this directly from you?
    Thank you
