The deconstructed circular motifs of this crocheted blanket echo cogs and wheels tumbling out of a giant clock. Long, subtle colour changes shift gradually from one shade to another in the centre, contrasting with the curves, and representing how one moment in time flows on to the next.

Pattern notes
This Blanket is made of five different motif designs in a variety of
shapes. Once finished, they are joined with PLT Join, then Border is added. Refer to Schematic 1: Blanket Layout for guidance. Use a light tape such as painter’s tape to mark WS of each motif with yarn used as you go, noting MC and CC (see Special Abbreviations) for Motifs 4 and 5. Follow turn work/do not turn work instructions carefully throughout. Pm in cnr st(s) to help identify it on following rounds. For example, if 5 dc are worked to create cnr, pm in third dc to mark it as cnr st on next round.
Beg ch1 is omitted throughout: do not work ch before first dc of round.
