Firstly apologies if you are expecting to find this blog post to contain all the information to make this blanket.........It's more an explanation of why I won't be sharing the details.
I love Orla Kiely so I was excited to be asked to make an Orla inspired blanket recently in a lovely warm, autumnal combo. I remembered that some time ago lovely Anita from My Craft Life started making her own Orla style blanket and so the idea really came from that. Unfortunately Anita didn't share the finished blanket or the pattern she came up with before she disappeared from social media so I had a play around and after quite a lot of trial and error I came up with my version. I've had a lot of people request the pattern but after a little consideration I won't be sharing it out of courtesy to Anita just in case she wants to pick up where she left off one day.
If you're out there Anita and perhaps reading this I'm sure I speak for many in the crochet community when I say that I hope you are keeping well and very much hope you'll be back sharing your beautiful crochet with us again soon, you are missed x
