Summer Palace in Stylecraft Special dk




This blanket design was initially inspired by an image of a printed cushion cover I found in a magazine, but having visited the Tipu Sultan’s Summer Palace near Mysore in India earlier this year I was inspired to look at the design again and link it into my Mysore Collection. I feel that the design reflects the wonderful carved and painted wooden pillars and painted friezes found within the building, but the Original version also retains it’s slightly Scandinavian looking, design which I originally felt echoed traditional fairisle design and would be the perfect cosy feeling winter blanket.
