The Marthall Baby Blanket isn’t the only blanket kit I have for Cheshire Fibre Festival. I have another baby/lap blanket, and here it is:
This is called the Snelson Snuggle Blanket and can be made baby sized at 65cm square, or slightly bigger to be a cosy lap blanket. Mine is cosy lap blanket sized!
The yarn is Stylecraft Malabar Aran, which is a blend of cotton and silk, quite a luxury for a baby blanket. But it has thickness and weight, so it would be good for a cot topping blanket in winter (or for your legs curled up on the sofa!).
It has a stripe design which makes up surprisingly quickly and uses 5 colours (100g balls), there is only one colour choice for the kit, as shown in the photo. Priced at £28 it is more expensive than the Marthall Blanket, but then it is more luxurious 🙂
Happy crocheting xxx
