Eleonora Tully's Seaside BlanketPrint
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.
