Ellen the Elephant Blanket

Last month (where has the time gone?!) I mentioned Ellen the elephant pram chain, only to realise that I’d never introduced the matching blanket I designed with it. I’ve clearly got a big mountain of patterns still to go through. Ellen the Elephant blanket was initially designed for…
