Section one of the Orla Blanket is complete!
I have to admit, I was slightly dubious about the colours after the first few rows. They were looking so incredibly retro – and not in a good way! But I’m so glad I decided to stick with it as I love how all the colours have come together in the first section.
I used my yarn pegs to plan out section two. I’m going for a planned random approach – there will be no particular order for each colour repeat, but I’m trying to balance the colours across the whole blanket (e.g. avoiding all the greens/warm colours pooling in one place).
The colour order for section two is:
Lincoln, Tomato, Silver, Mustard, Meadow, Spice, Mocha, Duck Egg Blue, Vintage Peach. All yarn is Stylecraft Special DK.
I’m really pleased with how it’s working out and will soon be moving on to the third colour repeat. I’ll keep you updated!
