Happy Colours Galore


As promised I have collected pictures from the wonderful projects that have been made with the circles-in-squares pattern I made for my Happy Colours Blanket.

Of course there are a few beautiful blankets made:

Love the randomly chosen colours of both smaller and larger circles, as well as the placement of the circles.

In opposite to the other projects, here was chosen for a limited amount of colours, and some circles ar made with just 1 shade, others with 2, and the larger circles sometimes with 3. Simple but stunning.

Only small or only large circles: the difference is huge, but I like that in both blankets the colour choices are seem tho be thought through very carefully.

2 Square blankets, one with a very straight alignment, the other with the circles scattered around. One pale, one bright. And yet, somehow these blankets look as if they belong together.

This blanket too is made with a limited amount of colours, but the look is very bold and bright too. It shows that with only 2 different large circles a blanket can become this beautiful.

And then there are some very special projects:

How cute is this? A very warm welcome into the world I think.

A smaller project! Just a panel to cover a bag, made with selfstriping yarn. I can imagine a blanket may be a bit daring for a lot of people, but this shows how you can make a wonderful small item, with smart use of yarn and pattern.

Another project which isn’t too big: a cushion! In this case the large circle is in the corner, but it could be anywhere.

The simplest idea I can’t show because the lady whose idea it was, didn’t give me permission to use her photo, but all she did was crochet the circles in different sizes, not make them into squares, but just sew them onto a pillowcover.

And the showstopper can’t  be anything else then Gordana’s beautiful Pouf cover.

She was one of the first ladies who used the pattern, and what an amazing job she did!

I hope you enjoyed this little gallery of happy colours!

Groetjes, Dorien
