The Crochet Along Blanket is ready!
This blanket design is influenced by my beautiful garden and the gorgeous flowers now emerging and will hopefully continue to bloom over the period of the Crochet Along period. I've been wanting to design a blanket like this for years. I originally saw a vintage pattern of a Kaffe Fassett knitted blanket design, full of little patchwork squares all randomly sewn together. It makes a very powerful and bohemian look and a very special blanket for you to make and keep forever.
Please order soon so that I can get the packs out in time for the starting date.
There are some great skills and techniques and I will guide you through with step by step instructions and be there throughout the process to support and help you.
There are 5 parts to the blanket pattern, each which will be released over a 2-week period. Each part will give you instructions and the pattern for the squares in the Blanket.
Part 1 will start on Friday 19th May.
Part 2 will be released on the 2nd June.
Part 3 will be released on the 16th June.
Part 4 will be released on the 30th June.
Part 5 will be released on the 14th July.
The instructions will be sent to you by email on these dates. There will be instructions and support on Nicki's Blog and each member who joins will be joined into a private Crochet Along Facebook Group where you will receive support from Nicki and from others working on the blanket with you.
I realise that everyone has different time scales for making the blanket and you may not be able to finish each section within the two weeks. So I recommend that you do some of the squares for the current section during that period, so that you get the hang of them. Then put them to one side and continue to work on the section you're working on. You can always come back to see the comments on the Facebook Group and Blog later, and you can always contact me for advice.
The yarn pack has 8 shades of DY Choice DK yarn. There are 13 balls (100g) of yarn in the pack. The crochet hook recommended size is 4mm and this can also be bought on the Shop page. Although a tension square will need to be achieved for the correct size of the square, so the hook size may need to be changed to achieve the right tension. The large square is approx 6in and the smaller squares are approx 3in. The tension is based on my crochet and I crochet quite loosely!
I'm so excited to be launching my first ever Crochet Along and I hope you love the blanket as much as I do.
