Make Deb's beautiful version of the Island Wildflower blanket using Bellissimo Orchard 8ply cotton. She took a few years to make this blanket but it was worth it in the end!
Rachele Carmona, the designer of the Island Wildflower blanket says, "It is a simple design using elements of crochet that you have probably used in the past, such as sunburst squares and granny stitch, and combining them in a new way. The result is a unique and opulent piece that will garner endless compliments."
The blanket is perfect for crocheters who know how to make granny squares and want to push their skills to the next level.
Choosing colours - there was no method that Deb used for choosing her colours. Sometimes she just put her hand in the bag and used whichever one she pulled out! They all work beautifully together so you can't go wrong.

About Bellissimo Orchard
Bellissimo Orchard is a beautiful DK/8ply gassed and mercerised long staple cotton yarn, suitable for all types of knitted and crocheted garments and accessories. This yarn has a lovely sheen and drape, and gorgeous stitch definition.
Gassed means that the mercerised cotton yarn has been exposed very rapidly to a hot gas flame. This process removes any fuzz or excess lint on the thread resulting in a brighter and smoother appearance.
