This one is simply so much fun! The little spots of color falling through a field of white, growing larger as they fall into the colorful pile!!

And the motifs are really simple to join-as-you-go--particularly because I provide a complete photo-tutorial of the joining process. Remember though, there is no need to print the picture section or use it at all if you are familiar with the whole JAYGO thing as written instructions are included in the pattern section.

As always, I have had my pattern thoroughly tested. Here is what one tester had to say about it:


I think you did an excellent job in creating two placement diagrams, most patterns would only include ONE. This gives a person the option to pull out markers on the "blank" if they want to play with color before spending time on the actual blanket! EXCELLENT in my opinion.

I really enjoyed this pattern, Susan. Not only easy to remember, but has a wonderful texture and fun stitching so that it doesn't get boring.

And this is her lovely test sample:

Here's what another tester, Sandra of Beautiful Boardwalk worked up with her sample--

Isn't the tan background just totally cool! See, I told you this one had color options!

The pattern calls for portions of 10 different colors of worsted weight yarn in addition to the main color. If you want to use a lighter weight yarn you will get a bit smaller blanket, but since this one measures a whopping 54 inches (137cm) X 57 inches (145cm) that shouldn't be too "big" of a deal.

Bust your stash, use colors that suit your style, and have a blast with this colorful sprinkle of color!

You can find the pattern in my shops--

  7. I just purchased your pattern and I have a question. How do you create the "magic ring"? There is an alternative listed in the substitute stitches, but I didn't see the instructions for making the magic ring. Did I just miss something? Could you provide those instructions? Thank you.
