Molla Mills and the exclusive pattern for a wool crochet blanket

Molla Mills has made the crochet Ketju blanket exclusively for us, itís exquisite and perfect for snuggling up with in the cold winter months. The pattern has got an intermediate difficulty level with which youíll end up with a super warm, thick and soft to the touch. Itíll be like your security blanket that youíll never want to part with! The chosen yarn for this small woollen piece of art is our baby alpaca and merino, Sierra. Molla Mills chose two pale colours to create an elegant contrast which is suitable for anywhere. However, you can choose whichever combination you want from our shop.

Just like the tote bag Kaakeli, Ketju has been inspired by Morocco. From its colours and vibe to the layout. Molla Mills would like to point out an important aspect of Ketju: given the lightness of the yarn, this blanket could easily become a warm scarf, all you have to do is reduce the pattern, by removing the repetitions of the chart.

Letís get started. However, first of all Iíd just like to say that the amazing outcome and softness of the blanket are a guarantee, not only by Molla Millís skillful hand, but also the Sierra yarn that was chosen precisely for its softness and ability to give out heat.
