This blanket design was inspired by the work of Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant of The Bloomsbury Group and in particular their home 'Charleston Farmhouse' and the murals they painted at the nearby Berwick Village Church.
I had wanted to design a project using Charleston as my inspiration for many years, so I decided that this project should be a trade heirloom piece. I have used a collection of high end Rowan Yarns, including Soft Yak and Baby Merino Silk in DK weight yarns and have also chosen to use beads for an extra focal point.
The patterns for this project are available within a 96 page soft bound book 'Bohemian Blooms', which includes more detailed information about my design inspiration and step-by-step images for each of the crochet motifs.
