I'm back today with my Starburst Flower Throw, all finished with a border, it's been a long time coming.
I started it back in May, last year when I found some Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran at £2 a ball, I'd had my eye on this Jane Brocket pattern for a while when I first saw it in Mollie Makes Issue 2 and this yarn was perfect as I only had 2-3 balls of each colour. I did buy more cream at full price, though.
I had thought I'd finished it some month's ago but when I was going through my stash, I found the leftover yarn. I kept looking at it thinking I'd get another few squares made from it. I ended up with another 14. It's not a large throw, it has 80 squares now and is perfect for throwing over my legs on these cold, snowy nights.
I had 2 full balls left of the cream so I added a simple border of double crochet (sc in U.S. terms) and a picot edge.
I've loved working with this yarn, it is so soft and squishy and I've ended up with a gorgeous, thick, warm throw.
Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend, everyone !!! We are forecast more snow today, here in the Midlands, U.K. so I maybe stopping put in my cosy, warm home.
Your throw is gorgeous, I love the pastel colours and motif.

It's beautiful! I love that pattern - it doesn't half eat yarn though, doesn't it!
Lovely ... and perfect for this cold weather!
It's blankets like this that make me want to learn to crochet. And then I remember how long it takes me to knit anything and that idea goes right out the window. It's lovely and I'm jealous :)
It is very pretty. Enjoy its warmth.
That is stunning, you have used lovely colours in your blanket!
I love the color combo you used. It's so bright and cheerful. Perfect for a cold dreary day.
That's a really great throw! I love it. Cheerful colors, too.
It's beautiful. Your projects and photographs are so very lovely.
It's gorgeous and so funny because every time I love someone's project it seems they are from the UK! You're very talented and I love the colors you chose too. Thanks for sharing it with us.
This blanket is extraordinary, Deb!
That is one gorgeous throw Deb, looks lovely with those fab colours! Ira x
