This beautiful and unusual blanket has been created by Jane Crowfoot, who also designed the exquisite Lily Pond throw and Persian Tiles.
This unique design has been inspired by Jane’s fascination with the tessellating shapes found in Moroccan architecture and design, and this stunning afghan certainly has a dream-like quality about it, with hints of the Arabian Nights.
Created using a carefully selected palette of Stylecraft Life DK, a soft, practical and hardwearing blend of acrylic and wool which is ideal for throws, blankets, and homeware.
The blanket uses individual Ogee-shaped motifs, which are joined together to form two sets of strips. In total, you will make 158 motifs, consisting of 8 strips with 11 motifs, and 7 strips with 10 motifs + two half motifs (at each end). When completed, the blanket will be approximately 155 x 100cm (61 x 39.25”).
