There is nothing as cosy and comfortable as a beautiful handmade blanket.
As I moved to Cornwall, my spiritual home, last year I have felt more comfortable as each week has passed.
I am inspired by the beautiful landscape, both the woodlands and the coastal areas, there is a ruggedness to the moors around Bodmin and the north coast that really makes me feel at one with nature and I tried to reflect that in this design.
This is just a little collage of the beautiful area I live in.
Cornish Comfort is full of rich texture with a wonderful mixture of both simple and more complex stitches.
If you are visiting the Knitting and Stitching show in London this year you will find the yarn packs on the Stylecraft stand, including a voucher code to download the pattern from Ravelry.
Cornish Comfort is also my featured design as a Stylecraft Blogstar this year and you will be able to join many people in the new Stylecraft MAL (make a long) group on Facebook, and of course in my own Facebook group Helen’s Hookaholics.
