Rosslyn Blanket Pattern by Helen Shrimpton - Digital Version
Created by the wonderfully talented Helen Shrimpton in Stylecraft Special DK.
Rosslyn is a beatuful suburb of New Zealand, it is also the name of an ancient chapel in Scotland, both inspired this design, along with the meaning of the name, which is a beautiful flower and a celebration of the divine feminine.
There are three stages to the pattern, you may want to stop at the circular mandala, or just after the first round of rose buds for a baby blanket, or continue for a full size blanket.
This gorgeous pattern is accompanied by a photo tutorial to help you every step of the way. You can find colour packs for this beautiful creation, here
Please Note: The pattern for this project is written in US terms..

hi this is the first time I have followed a paten and although I did make a few mistakes, I found it easy to follow and enjoyed making it, only thing is now that my granddaughter has told me that the blanket is her's :) so now I have to make another one for myself which I will again enjoying making hoping that she don't clam that one too. thanks helen
Not done yet but so far the pattern is very easy to follow.
I brought the Happy Rosslyn kit and I’m really enjoying making it. The only problem is that the pattern shows for a fewer amount of colours than given so you need to keep looking at the picture to try and make out which colour comes next, and some off the colours bear little resemblance to the photo.
I haven’t started it yet
