Florence/Myrtle - Madder Triangles

I've spent all afternoon on Photoshop working on some Myrtle blanket designs for my Madder Triangle book.
I'm working on star designs, some of them are totally mental and I'm not sure if I'll be able to explain them as a pattern.
Trying to work out how I'd write the patterns has made me think about how I'm going to write the pattern for Florence.
I thought I'd already blogged about Florence/Myrtle, but I can't find the post so maybe I haven't.

Florence was made for baby Florence as a baby blanket.
The working name was Myrtle as that's what she was called before she was born.
Florence is not typical baby colours as baby Florence's mum doesn't like pastels or pink, plus I only work with my colours and even though some of them can be very subtle I don't think of them as pastel.
Myrtle will be the name of the second star blanket

So here are a few Florence photo's, including a photo of her and her mum and dad when she was a few days old.
I'll be blogging lots more about the blankets later, for now I have to get to the post office before it closes.


  1. I love this and would really like to make something similar for my daughter who is expecting her first baby and who also loves exuberant colours rather than the typical baby pastels. Is the pattern going to be available and are any of your glorious yarns suitable for machine washing?

    Many thanks
