1:12th scale Apricot Leaf bedspread
Although the Apricot leaf pattern is a traditional design that has been around for at least 250 years in some form or another, the border design is my own creation.
Materials required to knit this pattern in 1:12th scale:
Bedspread - size 22 needles (0.70 mm/US size 6/0), 1.5-2 20g balls of size 100 crochet cotton or good quality sewing thread. (Each square uses approx 5 metres yarn).
Cellular Blanket - size 16 (1.5 mm/US size 3/0) needles, 75-100 metres of 1-ply wool.
Instructions are given for changing the size of the blanket and bedspread to suit. Gauge is not important as dolls house beds vary in size.
TO ADAPT PATTERN FOR A FULL SIZE HUMAN VERSION:
The same pattern is used, for full details see notes on actual pattern.
This can be made for a single or double bed.
For example: a double bedspread of 1.2 metres by 7.38 metres would require 315 squares (giving a finished size of 2.4 metres by 2.1 metres i.e. 15 squares by 21 squares), plus edging to make the finished size
