Have you heard of Barbina's blog?
Barbina lives in Germany and she has
sent us 4 squares for The Beautiful
Blogger Blanket 2012.
In fact Barbina went one step further
and designed her own square pattern!
Here is the beautiful little package
that I unwrapped last week...
and attached to the label and ribbon,
a special little treat for me...
A sweet detachable stitch marker!
Thank you Barbina.
So here are the four squares...
They are all made from the same pattern
called, 'The Flower Square Pattern' by Barbina
which you can find with a really clear
tutorial on Barbina's blog here..
The squares are all made using
Rico Essentials DK yarn...
I have never used it before, but
it feels very silky, has a slight
sheen to it and would have a
good 'drape' for a cotton yarn.
The first square is a pale teal and white.
The second is a pale lilac and white.
The 3rd square is a deep custardy yellow....
The 4th is a purple-blue with white.
All four together look so fresh and sweet...
I can imagine a whole blanket
made of these very easily!
Thank you so much Barbina...
You now have 4 chances to win the whole blanket!
