High Tea Floral

This is the second High Tea Floral Throw I have made and I still love it.  The pattern is designed by the very talented Jen Tyler from Hooks n Tales.  She is based in Cape Town, South Africa and designs the most amazing blankets and squares.

I wanted something completely different from my first one, so I chose colours from my living room and incorporated them into an essentially white blanket.

I didn't do this one all in one go as I had other projects on the go as well, so it took a little longer to finish than the first one.  She also gets very weighty, which is something you don't want on your lap in the middle of summer.

I am in awe of Jen's ability to put stitches and patterns together.  After making the round section I had no idea how she was going to be able to square it all off again.  But she did.

My favourite part is the border.  It is perfect for finishing off the whole look.

She is just about big enough to fit to the edges of our king size bed.  I'm sure she'll be nice and cosy in the winter.

My first one was a little more colourful.  She now lives in Norfolk with my mum-in-law, who loves her.


  1. That is absolutely beautiful. Destined to become a valued family heirloom. Such a pretty pattern and so well made!

    1. Thank you. She's on my side of the bed at the moment as hubby says it's too hot!!

  2. Both of these blankets are gorgeous, you are very talented to be able to read, understand the pattern & then create the design in lovely colours.

    1. I have to admit to winging it with the colours. I start off using each colour in turn and then start adding them randomly as I go along.
