The main hexagonal motif used in this project was originally designed to be part of my Frida’s Fowers blanket crochet along project in 2016, however I felt it wasn’t totally right for the design, so I made an alternative piece instead.
The colours for this project were inspired by the décor of Frida & Diego’s fabulous kitchen within their home in Mexico City ‘The Blue House’, which is now a museum.
The kitchen surfaces feature bright yellow and blue ceramic tiles and the painted table and chairs that sit at the centre of the room have green and red hand painted details. The large terracotta bowls and cooking pots that are placed around the room are decorated with flashes of orange and pink - all colours that feature in the palette I have chosen for this project.
The pattern is written in UK & US terms and it includes written instructions and crochet charts.
