It's a party of color, I tell ya! And with fun texture, too. I had someone tell me
I made it with one of my favorite yarns--Scheepjes Colour Crafter.
There are lots of reasons why I love working with this yarn, but here are a few:
~with generous 100g center-pull skeins at a very affordable price, they are perfect for blankets and other larger projects
~I'm finding that the DK weight is heavy enough for a bit of warmth, but not too heavy to sit under while working in warmer weather--again, perfect for blankets
~the premium acrylic is easy care, doesn't pill or fuzz, and is super soft--again, ideal for blankets
~have you seen the colors?!!! Again, perfect for blankets--and ME!
So, now that you know why I love this yarn for blankets (and lots of other projects, too), let's gaze at this blanket...
I have taken the time to write up a PDF printable pattern for you--because I know how much nicer they are to work from--and it has been thoroughly tested for accuracy. You can find the pattern and a bunch of others (free and paid) for download in my Ravelry shop here or my Craftsy shop here. But I've got some fabulous news...
You can get your hooks into a KIT with all of the yarn needed to make your own Skittles blanket. One click. All the yarn you need to finish this sample blanket. They are available from Wool Warehouse beginning Monday, April 4. So follow the link above and snag your kit. Let's get Skittling!
I've got sooooo many projects in the works right now--last count 7. Some are nearly ready--some are in the early stages. So stay in the "Button" loop with me on Facebook here, or Instagram (@FeltedButton). Or sign up for my newsletter at the top of the sidebar and don't miss out on my colorful (sometimes crazy) happenings.
