A Bavarian crochet lap blanket or throw in a lovely neutral oatmeal colour. Measuring 105cm square, this blanket is not just a pretty face, it weighs approx a Kg and is made from a 60% pure new wool 40% polyamide blend yarn from Patons, now I didn't know what Polyamide was, so I asked Mr Google and found out that it is just another name for Nylon, which is often blended with wool because it is awfully good at keeping it's shape, I also found out that it was this blend of fibres that the early polar explorers had their clothes made from for their trips to the poles, so it is seriously warm and weighty as well as being very lovely indeed. There has been a revolution in micro fibres and there are throws out there which will keep you warm with next to no weight to them at all, but personally I feel they don't have the same rustic charm as a proper old fashioned woollen one, which will not just sit on your lap but give you a cuddle too. There are 25 balls of new wool in this blanket.
I love Bavarian crochet, but I've mostly seen it in rounds of different colours and wanted to see what it would be like in just one colour, I chose this wool as it had a slight fleck in it which I thought would suit the pattern. The more I made of this the more I fell in love with it, I love the colour, it reminds me of biscuits. I love the old fashioned, rustic, slight roughness to the wool. I adore the weight of it, and the way it sat on my lap as I made it, almost tucking me in, I found it so comforting. As a child I believed that my blankets would protect me from the things that go bump in the night, this one gives the same impression. It might not be for sale for long, I am being very brave and listing it for now, but I might cave in tomorrow and keep it all for myself.
