Now it’s time to learn all about the Striped Bliss Blanket so you’ll know exactly what we’re making.
I love hearing from you in my Homelea Lass Facebook group so pop in and tell me how you’re going, ask me your questions and share your progress photos. I love seeing what you’re up to on Instagram too, so tag your photos with @homelealass #homelealass #hlblissblanket.
We’re making a Bliss Blanket that has 12 coloured stripes. The stripes can be done in any colour and are done by seamlessly joining the yarn at the start and end of the row.

The Striped Bliss Blanket in the image below has 6 different coloured stripes, repeated twice. The stripe colours are minna pink, vintage purple, grey, indigo blue, mint green and charcoal grey.
The main colour is natural.
