Celtic Tiles Blanket by Lilla Bjorn

I wanted to share this fabulous design by Tatsiana of Lilla Bjorn’s Crochet World:Celtic Tiles Blanket by Lilla Bjorn: http://www.lillabjorncrochet.com/2017/02/celtic-tiles-blanket-free-overlay.html

There is no doubt that Tatsiana is The Queen of overlay.  You only need to see her other designs here for proof.

This design takes me back to Cornwall and to Land’s End.  I even signed my marriage certificate in a pen with this crosshatch celtic pattern and it’s my favourite, very precious pen!

The free pattern is available on Tatsiana’s blog here, or you can purchase a print friendly version on Ravelry here.

And even more exciting, Wool Warehouse has packs in Stonewashed XL for this design available, so you must grab yours here*!

Progress Report – Aquarel Blanket

This one is taking me ages!  Not because I don’t love it, but because I’m also working on a few other designs concurrently – projects I can’t share yet.

I love working on it though.  It’s a great project that you can half concentrate on.  Not completely mindless, but enough so I can watch some trash tv at the same time, or listen to my favourite podcasts.

I think I have about seven blocks of rows to go, so I’m more than half way.  It’ll be ready some time in the next month or so I hope.  It already reaches from my toes to my chest and it is soooooo stretchy!  It’s going to be the perfect curl up on the couch and tuck all the edges in so you don’t get cold toes blanket ever!

When I asked on Instagram what the fastest anyone had finished a blanket, there were some crazy responses!  Like, four days, less than a week, crazy stuff!   Check out some of the responses below:

What are you working on this week?

Don’t forget: You can get hold of the Scheepjes Aquarel at Wool Warehouse (they ship everywhere)* and Scheepjes retailers throughout the Benelux.

Progress Update – Aquarel Crochet Project

I’ve been a busy little bee over the last couple of weeks since I last posted.  I’ve made great progress on my latest Scheepjes project, made with Softfun Aquarel.  It’s going to be a blanket, and so far it’s looking amazing!

That is a shot I took before I went on holiday two weeks ago, and the blanket has since travelled around Scandinavia and increased dramatically in size!

It’s actually grown even more since I took these pics!

The chevron is so fun to do, it’s lovely and soothing creating the zig zags and feeling the yarn come to life in all it’s squishy glory.

It won’t be finished in the next week, but I’ll be sure to post more progress shots as I go – make sure you check out my Instagram feed to keep updated.  As soon as I’m finished I’ll let you know exactly how much of each colour you’ll need to make this (so far it’s looking like about 6 balls of each colour except the purple, which will likely be 8).

You can get hold of the Scheepjes Aquarel at Wool Warehouse (they ship everywhere)* and Scheepjes retailers throughout the Benelux.  I can recommend my local yarn store Caro’s Atelier – look local first!

WIP -Textured Chevron Crochet

Textured Chevron crochet pattern in Scheepjes Aquarel

Last week I showed you the yarn that I’m using for my next project series, and this week I’m showing you the progress.

I love the texture of this stitch.  It’s a 3D crochet stitch that I’ve adapted and looks absolutely wonderful.  The Scheepjes Aquarel is perfect for the stitch pattern, the colours really come to life.

This project will become a cushion, and I love how it’s coming together.

The front of the cushion will have the 3D textured stitch, and the back will be flat.

You can pick this gorgeous yarn up from Wool Warehouse in the UK and internationally.  In the Benelux you can find the yarn at any Scheepjes retailer.

Next week: the reveal!
