Giraffe Blanket

Go super-colourful with this fab corner-to-corner blanket!


Who’s hiding in this blanket? At first glance, the motif blends into the dynamic canvas of colour, before a second look reveals the pixellated giraffe hiding within the multicoloured swatches. Using the corner to corner technique, the blanket uses diagonals of colour to create a design that mixes motif and pattern perfectly.
