Scheepjes Dawn Chorus CKAL - Bullfinch Blanket

Bullfinch Blanket-FB groups UK

Create a knitted or crocheted blanket using a Limited Edition Mega Whirl! Using this (almost) 3km-long yarn cake, create a beautifully draping blanket with a soft colourway inspired by the shades of this lovely little bird.

Esther’s designs showcase the classic colour changes for which our Whirl yarn is known, incorporating repeated mitred square motifs in each of the crochet and knit techniques.
