Poppy Star Blanket by Debbie Bentley


Knitted blanket with poppy designs in granny square pattern
Poppy Star Blanket



I knitted this blanket during the March May period of the lockdown. The pattern which I designed is a study of islamic geometry, but when it is knitted up it resembles poppy flowers. (Interesting visual trickery). I used 5 different colours in the panels, and each panel is unique. It is roughly 3'x4ft in dimension.
