The second set of forest patterns I designed were beech trees - I found my inspiration at Woodbury Castle on Woodbury Common not too far from Exeter. It’s an Iron Age hill fort which now has beech trees growing inside it. It’s a fascinating place, surrounded by common heathland, in summer you can feel like you’ve been transported to another world…

For the beech forest blanketscape I tried out a variation of the Scheepjes whirl range - a woolly whirl called ‘Kiwi Drizzle’. I thought the blue in the middle looked like the blue of a bluebell wood, and the dark blue like water flowing by.

To get inspiration for my bluebell wood whirl blanket, I visited Blackbury Camp, an Iron Age hill fort in East Devon in April. The bluebells were amazing - quite a carpet!
