I have two myself, handed down through the family. I've tried to recreate the patterns using graph paper but haven't got any further with it. I love the traditional designs. They are deceptively complex!

Hi ceri, It is. This design is based on a blanket we used for picnics and going to the beach. I've since found out it was originally my Dad's blanket when he was growing up. As he tells it, his mother cut one large blanket in two and he got one half and his brother the other half! I learned more about Welsh weaving while recreating this. I haven't found this exact pattern yet, but it is a garden weave of sorts. Traditional Welsh blankets are gorgeous!
Eleanor this looks like a traditional Welsh blanket. Is it? Lovely!
