I bought a packet (10 balls) of the green wool with which I made 30 squares. The blanket was not quite big enough for my liking and I didn't have any more of the green (and it was no longer available) so I decided to make a wide border. I chose a very contrasting plum/purple for the decorative edge. It's not quite a "violent" a purple as the sunshiny photos would suggest but a bright colour nonetheless.
It looked really pretty hanging on the washing line...
I like the effect of the light colours of the sandy ground behind
showing through the design on the photo below.
It measures approximately 1.65m x 1.30m
