In Issue 79 of Simply Crochet magazine we had a very special feature – a 28-page mini mag devoted to beautiful blankets and colour play!


Each of our designers – Emma Leith, Ilaria Caliri, Hannah Cross and Esme Crick – have designed and made a blanket that works beautifully in two colour palettes, one with warm shades and one with cool. Choose from Esme’s calming waves, Hannah’s ombre squares, Ilaria’s triangles and Emma’s floral burst or make all four in the shades that inspire you most.


All four designers agree that a blanket is the perfect project to de-stress, to get lost in the rhythm of the stitches and create something fantastically comforting to enjoy for years to come.


If you would like to get hold of our Beautiful Blanket colection, Simply Crochet issue 79 is available as a digital edition, for Apple phones and tablets, Android phones and tablets, the Barnes & Noble Nook, and to read through Zinio as PDFs. Click here to find the right version for you.


Alternatively, you can buy the individual patterns for Emma Leiths 'Join as you go' blanket and Esme Cricks 'Ripple Blanket' on Ravelry
