Helen never ever disappoints with her designs and these autumnal shade inspired blankets are no exception. Drawing her inspiration for the natural world around her Helen is able to take the views and craft them into her own unique (blanket sized) interpretation. Below is what Helen had to say about these projects.
There is nothing as cosy and comfortable as a beautiful handmade blanket. As I moved to Cornwall, my spiritual home, last year I have felt more comfortable as
each week has passed. I am inspired by the beautiful landscape, both the woodlands and the coastal areas, there is a ruggedness to the moors around Bodmin and the north coast that really makes me feel at one with nature and I tried to reflect that in this design.
This blanket pattern is crafted in Stylecraft Special DK and available in a Digital Version in US Terms, as well as this we are offering this pattern in the choice of 2 colourways designed by Helen herself. The finished blanket measures 150cm (59inches). There is also a downloadable colours per round list you can find on her website here.
