I have been working on these squares since my summer holiday last year. They are perfect project for on the go. I have a small project bag in which pop a few cutie pies, along with the pattern and some other bits and bobs, and work up a square or two while waiting for my youngest son at music rehearsal or my eldest son at volleyball practice. I can work up a square in about 20 minutes or so.
Catona Colour Pack
The color pack I am using for my new blanket is a Scheepjes Catona Colour Pack with 109 Cutie Pies, each ball contains 10g of mercerized cotton. Scheepjes Catona Cutie Pie balls are sold separately, but they are also available as a Colour Pack.
Turning Cutie Pies into a Blanket
I am turning every little ball into a square, and then I am going to join the squares to make a blanket. A tip, if you are working with so many colors which are sometimes really similar, put a small yarn thread around the wrapper. This way you still know which square is which color number when we start joining them up.
Curious about the rest?
Below you find links to the other posts and the pattern related to my blanket. I am done with the squares, but I still haven’t shown you everything there is to know about the blanket. Want to know more? Be sure to follow the links.
