Marsh Violet Crochet Blanket

I've been offline all week due to all the computers in the house refusing to be connected to the internet.
I had intended to publish this pattern on Tuesday, in fact it should of been published a long time ago, but its the most un-photogenic blanket in the world and I've taken hundreds of photo's trying to get some good ones. I'm still not completely happy with these photo's, but they will have to do for now :-)

So without further ado here is Marsh Violet

Marsh Violet was inspired by the colours of the Marsh Violets that grow on Exmoor.

You will need 
550 gms of 4 ply fingering yarn.
The blanket is made using a collection of violet, lilac, pale magenta and pale copper colours. 
I have used 15 hand dyed colours  in total, the colours don’t need to be from the dye lot, so its the perfect blanket to use leftover  oddments from your stash
You can use any 4 ply yarns of the same or similar meterage, Alternatively if you would prefer to buy yarn I recommend the following yarns - Drops Alpaca, John Arbon Textiles Knit by Numbers 4 ply, Fyberspates Scrumptious & Vivacious 4 ply/fingering. Knit Picks Palette, Cascade 220 Fingering, King Cole Merino Blend.

Crochet hook in size 3 mm, or size needed for your tension.
A tapestry needle for sewing in ends.

The blanket measures approx. 46 x 40 inches.

Marsh Violet can also be made as a shawl, the pattern includes weights and measurements.

The pattern contains detailed colour and yarn recommendations 
Written and charted Motif instructions in US and UK terms. 
Step by step construction charts 
Full coloured layout charts. 
Colour & size variation charts.

You can find the pattern here....

Happy Crocheting
