Hi all,
I'm interested in others thoughts about 'holes' in the blankets. Playing around with wool ready to start on the wooleater blanket and decided to join as a yo-yo test-swatch first 'coz I've always wanted to do one, but I feel that the 'holes' between the yoyos are too big. If I were to put it on the bed, or on the ground for a little one to roll around on, then the underblanket would show through.
I'm just fussy, but I'm curious what others think about big 'holes' in blankets between motifs. Been putting off doing some flower blankets becuase of the 'holes' between the petals.
Cheers
Xyphir

PS: Here's some photos to illustrate what I mean.

that's how they look but you could always back the blanket with flannel or fleece

One "pro" for hole-y blankets: they keep the blankets from being too stiff and heavy. I find that even fairly hole-y blankets are still plenty warm, and the holes make them lighter and more pliable (for bunching up/squishing around and snuggling up with)

I don't mind the holey-blankets. I use them as light covers over sheets in warmer weather, and I love the way they look.
