Cornucopia Blanket Pattern by Amanda Perkins - Digital Version
Cornucopia was designed as a colour experiment; Amanda wanted to explore the effect of subtle tonal and saturated colour in the same blanket. So she started with a skein of bright yellow and added extra colours that worked together from her stash. After the first few rows of motifs of the blanket Amanda realised she had chosen fruity natural colours and so named it Cornucopia, the mythological “Horn of Plenty” which overflows with fruits and flowers. The more we look at the blanket the more fruits we can see – strawberries, cherries, apples, mangos, limes, kiwi’s, oranges ……………….
Amanda made Cornucopia with scraps of yarn from her stash, plus some skeins of hand dyed 4 ply/Fingering yarn. She used 20 or 30 colours, which can be divided up into 10 base colours. Or you can also make the blanket using just the 10 base colours.
You will need 10 x 100 gm skeins of 4 Ply/Fingering weight yarn (400 metres/437 yards per 100 gms/3.5 oz) You can use any 4 ply yarn you wish as long as it’s the same meterage.
We will shortly be offering a yarn pack for this blanket which will have a range of yarns hand picked by Amanda to create your own version of the blanket.
Cornucopia measures 115 cm/45” square
It can also be made with a DK yarn, Amanda would recommend a DK with 240 to 260 metre per 100g, approximate DK size would - measure 170 cm/65” square
