Centerpoint Crochet Blanket Free Pattern

It’s pattern time!

Here you’ll find the free pattern for my Centerpoint blanket, made with Scheepjes Organicon in mind. You can substitute for Scheepjes Cotton 8 or Catona Denim which have similar weights and yardage, or any Scheepjes yarns in fact. You’ll just need to consider the quantities needed when substituting.

I just so happen to have a bonus pattern with this motif coming your way using Scheepjes Chunky Monkey, so that will be a great option for you too – a way to make a comparable blanket a lot faster as the motifs are four times the size!

Get The Yarn

Scheepjes has the complete list of stockists available on their website, at scheepjes.com. If your favourite retailer doesn’t have Organicon, you can always ask them to get it in – don’t be shy!

Wool Warehouse* ships globally (with some small delays due to C-19), so you can pick it up there.

I say it all the time: Caro’s Atelier* is my local yarn store, so I would also love you to support them. They ship all over Europe.

Black Sheep Wools* is one of the best bricks and mortar stores in the UK, and they’ll also ship to you.

Assembly

to illustrate the layout of the motifs of the centerpoint blanket

Once you have made all of your motifs, we can assemble the blanket.
Lay the motifs out in the configuration as per the graphic below, ensuring that your MC strips point toward the centre. Start with CC1 in the centre, and work outwards, with CC6 and CC7 at the ends only to create the rectangle.

Join the rows of the motifs by taking row 1 (CC7) and folding it over to lay face down on row 2 (CC6) and zip across the motif using a slip stitch through the outside loops of each motif. This creates an invisible join on the front, and an interesting join on the back. You can also hold the squares flat, wrong side facing your and work through the front loops of both squares.
Work 3 sts in each treble repeat (block) and 3 sts along the posts of the trebles, making sure it’s not too tight or too loose. There should still be some movement if you try to stretch the joined motifs because the C2C motif drapes beautifully. Repeat for all rows.

I found it easiest to join rows 1 and 2, then 3 and 4, 5 and 6, 7 and 8, 9 and 10, 11 and 12, 13 and 14 then finally 15 and 16 to each other. Then I joined each set of 2 rows to one another, then the sets of 4 rows, and finally you’ll zip the two halves together. Once all the rows are joined, you can rotate the blanket and zip down each un-joined column. See image below:

Graphic of how the maker should assemble their motifs

Border

Work in rounds once the motifs are assembled.
Round 1 With MC, ss to any corner which has a Ch2 start. Ch1, (dc, ch2, dc) in the ch2 at the corner, [(ch2, miss tr set of 3 trebles, dc in sp between sets), rep to corner, (dc, ch2, dc) in ch-sp at corner (or in last tr if no ch2-sp)]. Rep to end, ss to join
Round 2 ch2, [(tr, ch2, tr) in corner ch2-sp, 3tr in each ch2-sp to corner], rep around to end, ss to join.
Round 3 ch1, 3dc, [(dc, ch2, dc) in corner ch2-sp, dc to corner], rep to end, ss to join.
Round 4 ch2, 4dcblo, [(dc, ch2, dc) in corner ch2-sp, dcblo to corner] repeat to end, ss to join, cut yarn.
Block to size. You can also block the squares before assembly.

Centerpoint – Crochet Blanket REVEAL

I’m so excited to be able to share this new design with you!

It’s been a massive undertaking; probably the largest crochet project I’ve ever made, and all with a teeny tiny 3mm hook!

I love the pastel rainbow, all brought together with the soft white stripes radiating out from the centre.

The Centerpoint blanket is made with Scheepjes Organicon, their first certified organic (and vegan) cotton yarn, and using a 3mm hook. I’ve shared more information about this lovely yarn here.


Get The Yarn

Scheepjes has the complete list of stockists available on their website, at scheepjes.com. If your favourite retailer doesn’t have Organicon, you can always ask them to get it in – don’t be shy!

Wool Warehouse* ships globally (with some small delays due to C-19), so you can pick it up there.

I say it all the time: Caro’s Atelier* is my local yarn store, so I would also love you to support them. They ship all over Europe.

Black Sheep Wools* is one of the best bricks and mortar stores in the UK, and they’ll also ship to you.

(If you own a yarn store and stock Organicon, please feel free to add direct links to your product page in the comments of this post.)


The pattern will be ready shortly, the charting is all done, and if you look closely in the photos, I’ll have a modified version so you can make the blocks and turn them into whatever you fancy!

This dog, always has to be in on the action.

See you soon, with the pattern!

WIP – Organicon Crochet Blanket

It’s been a busy few weeks! I’ve been working on my Scheepjes Organicon squares in the background, but I also shared about the launch of the latest issue of Yarn – The Colour Issue; did you see it yet? If not, all the info is here. The designs are incredible, it’s a must have.

Because it’s so huge and the hook is so small, this blanket is taking me longer than usual to complete. Having said that, the effort is so worth the results already. The colours are just the best, I’m excited about all of this!

Isn’t this colour mash beautiful? This photo was at about 60-ish blocks in, with a LOT to go. I’ll need at least double this amount to achieve my blanket goal.

One thing that I am doing, although it doesn’t really look like it here is, I’m working my ends away as I go and will only need to snip them when I’m done. Each block has 6 ends, so if I multiply that by 150-odd blocks, my brain explodes, so I have to weave them in as I go otherwise I’ll throw it all in a corner and never look at it again!

Are you a person who weaves ends in as you go, or do you wait until the end? How do you feel about ends? Personally I find them to be the necessary evil in creating things of beauty, so I tolerate them and do everything I can to minimise the effort.

Stay tuned, I’ll be joining soon. I plan to use that really fast slip stitch invisible zipper join so it will all come together very quickly, I think you’re going to love it.

Keep an eye on the socials for more photos, the reveal will be here before you know it!

YARN 10 – The Colour Issue

You guys, have you seen it yet?!

Tell me that’s not just about the most beautiful issue of YARN you’ve ever seen?!


Get Your Copy

Some retailers have it available for sale already, isn’t that awesome?

Wool Warehouse* has it, and they ship globally as you know.
Habbedash also has it, they ship globally too (and sell all sorts of lovely luxury goodies for the yarn freak who has everything).
Scheepjes also have all their stockists listed on their website, and if your favourite doesn’t have it yet, ask them to order it for you.


This is the 10th anniversary special edition, and it doesn’t disappoint! Look how YARN has evolved over the last five years. Which was your favourite? I say every time: THIS is my favourite issue, they just get better and better!

I have a design in the bookazine, and it’s absolutely one of the most beautiful patterns I think I’ve ever created. I’m so proud of the result, and overwhelmed by the incredible styling.

It’s called Frozen Rose Shawl and is soft and delicate, with a beautiful open lace stitch pattern. My versions are made with whirl Forbidden Fuchsia* and also in Pink to Wink*, but I can’t wait to see what colour you choose for yours.

Another design that I can’t get enough of is Carmen’s adorable Chilly Billy polar bear. Can’t just just imagine snuggling that little guy and never wanting to let him go? I can see my daughter and I having words over who gets to keep him.

Chilly Billy is made with Scheepjes Furry Tales* and his outfit is made in Catona*.

Do make sure you pick up your copy quickly, I think this one is going to sell out. People are becoming collectors, with quite the hunt for some of the hard to find back issues going on…

If you’re a Scheepjes stockists and you have copies of The Colour Issue, please add direct links to the comments below so people can find you.

Please also do share your favourite projects, and don’t forget to tag me in your socials when you make my Frozen Rose shawl!

A New Crochet Design – Scheepjes Organicon

Aren’t these colours just the best?

I have a seriously cool design coming up, using all of these colours, I can’t wait to share it with you over the coming weeks.


Get The Yarn

Scheepjes has the complete list of stockists available on their website, at scheepjes.com. If your favourite retailer doesn’t have Organicon, you can always ask them to get it in – don’t be shy!

Wool Warehouse* is shipping globally again (with some small delays due to C-19), so you can pick it up there.

About Organicon

Scheepjes Organicon is a 100% GOTS certified organic cotton, which is part of a strong push toward sustainability and the need to improve production methods and conscious consumption.

A benefit of this is that Organicon is a deliciously soft yarn which is soft on skin and has a beautiful drape for garments and projects for baby.

Not only is Organicon produced in a sustainable way and unbelievably soft, it’s also vegan friendly, containing no animal products from the production of the cotton through to the dyes used to colour the yarn.

Yarn Stats

The yarn comes as 50g balls, with 170 metres.
It’s a 4ply (fingering) weight yarn, and a 3mm hook/needles are recommended.
There are 21 colours to choose from, and what I love is that there are light and bright versions of the same colour, so they all work together and can be interchangeable.

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the colours I’m using. You’ll have to wait and follow my Instagram feed to keep up with the progress over the next few weeks.

Just a small hint: my project is huge, and is many, many more balls than the three I’ve just shown you. It’s going to be completely worth the effort, and I’m going to have a great pattern to share with you at the end of it.

Stay tuned!

Pretty Little Things – Monthly Mini-Craft Publication

Have you seen the latest monthly publication from Scheepjes?

It’s called Pretty Little Things, or Klein Maar Fijn in Dutch, and it’s released every month with three designs which are accessible to everyone, with a crochet, knit and sewing pattern in each one.

The Most recent is called Beach and I have a pattern to share!

My design is called Toes in the Sandals, and they’re super cute, a pair of stylish sandals that you can wear at the beach or out and about because they’re so comfy!

The sandals are made using a single ball each of Scheepjes Maxi Sweet Treat, in two (or just one if you prefer) of your favourite colours. You’ll also need a pair of foam soles, which are easy to come by, I’ll share the stockist links below.

I’ve also used a fun crochet technique which prevents the straps from stretching out, which in shoes, unlike your most comfy jeans, is not what you want, right?

There are two other designs featured in the publication, one is a knit beach cover-up (or stylish top!) called Blue Skies Top, using Cotton 8 from Pat Strong:

The third design is the lovely Below The Reef Bag from Ingrid Peters, a colourful beginner-friendly sewing project for crafters looking to create a fun bag to for all summer essentials.

It also has undersea embroidery which is so much fun to do!

Get the Yarn!

Ok, so the soles can be picked up in a few different places.

If you’re in the Netherlands, go to de Brei Boerderij and choose your favourite colour.

Elsewhere, your best bet is Amazon.

To get the publication and the yarn, visit any of your favourite Scheepjes stockists, almost everyone stocks it because it’s such a fantastic yarn. I use it for embroidery as well as crochet, I love it!

Also, in NL, check out Caro’s Atelier* – my local yarn store.
For the rest of the world, Wool Warehouse* is shipping everywhere again, so they can get it to you.

You can also get a digital copy of the pattern via Ravelry.

In this lovely Dutch weather, it’s the perfect time to be getting your beach on, enjoy!

Crochet Shawl Pattern Launch – Shallow

Close up of Shallow shawl

It’s been a long time in the making, but here she is!

Silhouette of Shallow shawl

The pattern is available to download from Ravelry here. Through the end of this weekend (until the 12th of July 2020) you will receive 50% off the pattern, plus an extra surprise at checkout, so don’t wait too long!

If you have issues with Ravelry access, please reach out to me at missnerisscrochet@gmail.com and we will arrange an easy alternative for you.

Why Shallow?

I wanted to create a shawl that had enough wingspan to wrap around my shoulders, cross over my chest and tie in a knot behind my back – Claire Fraser style, but not so big that it would be cumbersome.

So I needed to figure out construction to make a more obtuse angle, and eventually Shallow came to life, named for the more shallow depth.

View of woman wearing shallow shawl from behind

What yarn do you need?

The pattern calls for either three balls of Scheepjes Metropolis (150g fingering weight yarn), or a single Scheepjes Whirl (or Woolly Whirl) cake. There are instructions included for both yarns, so you can choose your favourite.

My Whirl sample is made with shade 560 Jade Jim Jam and the Metropolis version uses 045 Perth. I think the design suits both a solid colour and the long whirl colour changes perfectly.

Wool Warehouse* ships globally (although check their shipping process due to Covid-19 restrictions if ordering from outside the UK)

(If you own a yarn store and stock either or both of the listed yarns, please feel free to add direct links to your product page in the comments of this post.)


Tips from me

One thing you’ll see quickly is that the stitch placement is a bit tricky while you’re getting the hang of the pattern. I recommend you use stitch markers to keep track of your counts to prevent one side suddenly becoming longer than the other.

Another tip: if you match gauge, you’ll be able to follow the instructions without much issue, but if you find using Whirl that your tension is looser than mine, you can follow the Metropolis instructions instead. It will just mean fewer rows to work.

The pattern includes two charts which will help you progress, and there’s a handy puff stitch video that I’ve linked in the pattern as well.


Finally, as with all patterns, the more languages the better! If you would like to volunteer to translate this pattern into your local language, please do reach out to me via email (missnerisscrochet.com) and we can go through it together.

Enjoy, I can’t wait to see your ravelry projects and instagram posts. Use #shallowshawl so I can find it, and tag me @miss__neriss.

Crochet Pattern Launch – Memory Throw

It’s been a big week for me! Yesterday I launched the Berry Smash Cowl, and Scheepjes also released their latest YARN, the After Party issue, which is the pattern for my Memory Throw.

Memory Throw


Where to buy?

After Party patterns retail for a euro/pound, and Scheepjes has a list of all their fantastic stockists here. They also have loads of info about the pattern on their website.

Wool Warehouse stocks the English version*
My local yarn store Caro’s Atelier stocks the Dutch version*
Caro’s also stocks yarn packs to make the blanket*! If you buy from Caro’s and want the pattern in a different language, email me @ missnerisscrochet@gmail.com and I’ll gift it to you via Ravelry.

You can get your hands on the digital version in both Dutch and English, plus French, German, Spanish and Swedish on Ravelry here.


This pattern is one of the most special that I’ve made in my crocheting career.  You see, I made this quite a while ago actually.  While I was home in Australia last helping my mum sort all her stuff as she was dying, I found a vintage crochet blanket in a box in the shed.  I remember it being draped over our couch as a kid, but hadn’t seen it for years.

Original throw from 1988

The OG inspiration, circa 1988. That’s my mum there, second from the right.

The brightly coloured motifs and immediately inspired me to use my Scheepjes Stone Washed XL colour pack!

I started working on the blanket in the short two weeks between returning to the Netherlands and when my mum died.  I can still see myself sitting on the couch, working away, waiting to speak to her one more time, praying it wouldn’t be the last, then suddenly she was gone.

The next weeks were spent going through the motions, putting on a face for the outside world so as to not make others feel uncomfortable while I was drowning in my grief, and in that time those motifs were my safe place. I could pick up a ball and disappear for a few minutes, and just be in the moment. I was cast adrift, and working on this throw anchored me again.

Memory throw motifs

When it was finished, packing it up and shipping it off to its new home at Scheepjes HQ was cathartic.  So much of my heart and soul was poured into that blanket and it helped me to move through the stages of grief.

Memory throw super close up

Now, the beautiful styling and photographers from the wonderful team at Scheepjes really hits me in the feels.  I’m transported to that time, but instead of feeling the same sorrow, I feel what can almost be described as joy.  To be cliched, out of darkness comes light.

Memory Throw close up

The throw embodies my mum.  She was colour personified. I like to think she would have happily draped this over the back of her couch and snuggled under it on chilly nights.

Memory Throw full blanket

Thank you to the creative team at Scheepjes for publishing this pattern and for their ongoing support in my creative journey. I feel nurtured and love that I’m given the space to grow as a designer, especially as I spent the first 30 years of my life believing I wasn’t a creative person.  Now I know better!
