Spin off sample, from the new Running Bear Blanket......

I have a pattern that works, now to play with colours.

 Burnt orange to strong and the yellow needs softening i think, just for starters..

NEW DESIGNS FROM THE RUNNING BEAR BLANKET

Click the above link for the original pattern


I'm making Phil a Runing Bear Blanket for Christmas...my son snaffled the original.

As the original was made from left overs I can't make an exact copy. So it won't be exactly the same but a version of it.
There have also been a couple of new designs come from repeating a section on the new Running Bear....oh! to have another 12 hours a day!
 I need to crochet 4 of the daisy motif and do the shaded infill to check that the design works ok...but I'm 99.9% sure it will with the modified Daisy of the Running bear.

 Start of the Running Bear for Phil
