Wedding blanket

on

At our weddings, my family had asked all the guests to come with a bottle of wine and a ball of wool ! Such a great idea ! 

All the wool was different – different colours and different quality- and I wanted to keep it all together in a project that would remind us of our wedding day. A blanket seems an appropriate choice. 

At first I wanted to do each squares all different stiches however, I resolved doing only three different stiches to give the blanket some unity : cable stich, bobble stitch and rice stich.

Cables and bubble stitch

It was great fun to make. My mum had knitting my wedding dress and I used the wool that was left from my dress to make two more squares.

After assembling the whole thing I sewed a piece of fabric at the back but I did not like it so I will leave it like that instead

    I love your wedding dress , made by your mum , double lovely and the blanket is superb, I thought from the opening sentence the guests were knitting a square whilst drinking the wine , but your blanket has turned out so much better than that would have!

      Bonjour, j’avais cousu une doublure dans un premier temps mais je l’ai enlevé car cela ne rendais pas bien du tout. Je pense la laisser comme ça pour le moment. Voici le lien pour me voir dans la robe :https://instagram.com/p/BL_On1dD2dX/

  13. Ton plaid est superbe, j’aime bien le jeu des mailles et des points que tu as associé … chaque pièce est un souvenir d’un ouvrage. La robe que ta maman a tricoté est magnifique, joli travail. Félicitations à toutes les deux.
    Bon week-end,
    Amitié,
