Fall Into Winter Blanket crochet pattern - digital or hard copy
Now that Harvest Hues is available in mini-skeins, they obviously needed to be incorporated into a snugly crocheted lap-blanket design. The colours were chosen to represent the colour changes in nature as it passes from Autumn to Winter, but you could just as easily make a version in pinks and purples with the neutral Barley as the background colour.
The blanket is made up in 4 repeated panels, crocheted in linen stitch to create a drapey fabric that shows the colour stripes at their best. The panels are then slip stitched joined together before a double crochet border is added.
The pattern includes a chart, written instructions, schematics for joining and adding the border. UK crochet terminology is used.

Postage and Packaging
You can read all about P&P here.
The P&P costs applied are very transparent. No additional costs are added on, you simply pay for the cost of packaging and the cost of postage. I don't offer free P&P because what that usually means is that the cost of P&P has been added to the cost of goods. I think it is better to assume that my customers aren't daft and would rather have transparent P&P costs than the pretence of 'Free P&P' with inflated prices on the items that they are buying.
