Jane's inspiration for the original Frida's Flowers Crochet Along blanket project was Frida Kahlo's dresses and personal style. The original blanket featured bright floral crochet motifs on a dark background, which evoked the Mexican textiles and embroideries that Jane based the project on.
Whilst the blanket project has been incredibly popular since it's launch in spring 2016, we felt it would be good to give the project a little update and rework it using a new colour palette. The resulting new version is called Frida's Flowers Primavera and the yarn shades and the order in which they are used have been chosen by Lucia Dunn of Lucia's Fig Tree.
Lucia has a fabulous sense of colour and we are really pleased that she got involved in this project. Lucia has chosen shades from the Stylecraft Classique Cotton DK range and from the Batik range, to create this lovely version of the blanket. You can find more information about Lucia?s work by following this link to her blog where you will also find some of her wonderful blanket designs.
