Magic Circles Crochet Blanket by Jane Crowfoot in Stylecraft Life & Batik DK
This beautiful, bright and distinctive blanket has been created by Jane Crowfoot, who also designed the exquisite Lily Pond throw, Persian Tiles & Mystical Lanterns.
Inspired by her love of shapes, Jane has for some time wanted to create a montage circular design. Circle shaped motifs can be tricky to fit together and it is common to find that they can become warped when pieced together. To counteract this Jane has designed cross-shaped infill pieces that protect the shape of the large circles.
The completed blanket will measure approximately 117cm square.
