Lily Blanket Pattern by Amanda Perkins - Digital Version
Lily is named after designer, Amanda Perkins' mother; she died in 2007 so this blanket was made as a tribute to her. Although she was a seamstress she also knitted and crocheted, she loved colour so Amanda used as many bright colours as she could find, we're sure she would have loved the blanket!
Lily measures approx. 40 x 55 ins, (232 motifs)
(15 rows wide, alternate rows of 15 & 16 long).
Lily is a scrap blanket and best made with oddments from your stash in as many different colours as possible.
You will need 1400 gms in total.
