This is what you see when you look straight at the knitting.
This fairy is designed to be viewed from the side so it can also be used as a wall-hanging. The colours we used are almost fluorescent. You don’t need to make it as bright as this. Any two contrasting colours will work. The shading on the fairy’s wings is very subtle and shows up much better in real-life than in the photo.
The blanket was made in DK yarn and measures approximately 81 cm x 104 cm (32” x 44”). It can be made in any yarn though this might change the overall size. The size could easily be adjusted, by making wider borders all round, to make an afghan for an older child.
The instructions are very easy to follow, using a method of charting that we have devised ourselves.
