We’ve just launched a brand-new blanket designed by Eleonora Tully, who is best known for her beautiful coastal-inspired designs including the Late Summer Sunsets Blanket and Changing Tides Blanket. Eleonora lives by the sea on the south-east coast of England and is naturally inspired by the beautiful landscapes and seascapes surrounding her home.
The new Seaside Blanket Colour Pack features the pattern originally from the ‘Seaside Stash Busting’ blanket crochet along (CAL). Each pack includes the printed pattern and a selection of Stylecraft yarn in a colour palette of beautiful blues, greens and sandy tones to reflect the seaside inspiration behind this eclectic and fun design.
We love the different crochet stitches that Eleonora has used, which seems to be a theme that runs through all her gorgeous designs. They make for such fun and engaging projects, with new stitches to learn and create a stunning textured finished project.
Along with the main inspiration of the sea, the idea behind this particular blanket was born out of a simple question posed on social media for people to share their ‘craft stash’. Here’s the wonderful photograph Eleonora shared... we have slight stash envy!
This idea got Eleonora thinking. With so much yarn and so little time she wanted to create a blanket she could make slowly, crocheting just a few rows at a time. The different stitches that make up this pattern make it perfect for picking up when you have a spare few minutes.
Eleonora has put together the lovely Seaside Blanket colour palette with her most favourite colours. Each pack includes the pattern and all the yarn you need. She has chosen the ever-so-soft Stylecraft Special DK yarn, which is perfect for blankets, as well as the Stylecraft Eskimo yarn, to create the textural and fluffy border.
We’re delighted to introduce to you a brand new design by Sue Rawlinson - the Tranquil Waters Blanket. Maker of all things beautiful including the much-loved Sweetpea Blanket and Easter Blanket, Sue has created this dreamy design using Cygnet Pure Wool Superwash DK; a machine washable 100% pure wool with an exquisite handle.
The Tranquil Waters Blanket has been created by Sue using an array of harmonious and gentle shades, reflecting the colours of calm and tranquil waters. The tones of blue and green inspire thoughts of rippled oceans and the pinks and purples of a peaceful sky mirrored in a still body of water.
The blankets stunning textures include a delicate scalloped edge and the pretty wave crochet stitch that makes up the main part of the design. These textures, along with the gradual blended hues of the crochet border, remind us of flowing streams and rivers.
We absolutely love the Tranquil Waters Blanket and the added pompoms around the edge are always a fun and colourful addition to a project!
Just as enticing is the Cygnet Pure Wool Superwash DK yarn used to make this beautiful design. The yarn is 100% Pure New Wool so is lovely and luxurious, with the added bonus of being machine washable at 40 degrees!
The Tranquil Waters Blanket pack contains all 19 balls of the Cygnet Pure Wool Superwash DK required, plus a printed copy of the pattern. The finished blanket measures a generous 76 x 135cm/ 30 x 53in.
