Queen Blanket Crochet Along (CAL)Print
Introducing the NEW Queen Blanket CAL designed by Icelandic crocheter Tinna Thorudottir Thorvaldar.
Titled the Queen Blanket CAL, it is crocheted using Stylecraft Special DK and is a kaleidoscope of colour and mosaic effects. Mosaic crochet is a technique that is very easy to do but creates amazing geometric patterns. It has the added benefit that you don’t have to sew in ends as these are encased in the border of the blanket when that is added! How brilliant is that?
Tinna will be supporting the CAL with a set of step-by-step video tutorials, which will include an introduction to colour choices as well as showing how the pattern works interactively. These will all be available for free on Tinna's YouTube channel.
Part 1 launches on 18th September 2020 via Tinna's Ravelry store.
Note: Throughout the duration of the CAL, the complete pattern will cost $5 which is roughly £4. From 1st Nov, the pattern will cost $10 which is roughly £8 at the current rate of exchange.
Here are the dates for when each part of the CAL will be available:
18-Sep Part 1
25-Sep Parts 2 & 3
09-Oct Part 4
16-Oct Part 5
23-Oct Part 6, the border
There are three enticing colourways for the Queen CAL available in Special DK and each blanket comes in two different sizes. Each colourway is aptly named too:
Note: There are two kits available per colourway – one for the small blanket and one for the large blanket.
The blanket sizes are as follows:
Approx. 95 cm x 125 cm for the small blanket
Approx. 150 cm x 2 m for the large blanket
