Branwen – Now With Added Splodges

I’ve finally finished Branwen.

Doing the crocheted motifs took longer than I thought – not because they were difficult but because it still aggravates my wrist and elbow to crochet too much. I had to do a couple then leave it for a day.

There are three sizes of motif and I chose three colours of Rowan Felted Tweed from my “Felted Tweed Stash” 😯 – a lot of which is leftovers from one of Thug and Mewsley’s favourite cushions – I’m sure you’ve spotted this in the background of my pictures a few times. It’s Kaffe Fasset’s Tumbling Blocks design – I knit one side and backed it with spare curtain material.

Here are the motifs in three sizes…

I made a few extra of each colour and had a play until I was happy with the distribution and colour mix.

It looked like this…

Some very tedious sewing later, I have a finished Branwen!

Please excuse the grinning idiot – Ben was making me giggle 😀
