The pattern is 'Rita' by The Natural Dye Studio. I added some half hexagons along the two long sides as I wanted them to be straight. I used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK which is lovely to work with but some of the colours have rather annoyingly been discontinued.
Is it too soon to start planning the next blanket?!
