Koala Lovey

Hey there, it’s Reveal Day!

Welcome to the world, little Koala Lovey.


GET THE YARN

Scheepjes Cahlista is an aran weight yarn, made with 100% cotton. I’m using two balls of colour 074 Mercury, and you will also need a single ball of the complementary colour. Have a look at the Scheepjes Website for colour inspiration and stockists, there are more than 100 colours to choose from!

You can order the yarn online from my local yarn store Caro’s Atelier*.

Internationally there’s Wool Warehouse* (global shipping) and if in the US check out Dot’s Yarn Den.


As I mentioned in my previous posts, I’ve used Scheepjes Cahlista for this design, and it’s really the perfect yarn for baby things. The brushed cotton is soft and because it’s an aran weight it works up fast!

I’ve loved creating this smooshy little lovey. I mean, a sleepy koala, who’d have thought? They only sleep about 20 hours per day!

I came across the technique to create the two colour blanket on Instagram, and it’s called “yarn under.” In my pattern (which will go live soon) I’ve abbreviated the stich to YUDC, or yarn under (UK terms) double crochet.

The pattern is almost ready, the colours look amazing. I can’t wait to share it with you!

Spring is in the Air, So is a New Design

The sun is shining today after what feels like an eternity of grey and wind. Spring is around the corner, I’ve started seeing the daffs poking through and that gives me hope for longer, warmer days!

Plus, there’s a new baby in our family! No, not mine. That shop is long shut. But there’s a baby and I get to see her soon!

The thought of finally having a new baby around has made me want to make all the baby things again, so I’m making a gift for her which is a load of fun.

I’m using a bit of a combination of these perfect “Nerissa” colours in Scheepjes Cahlista. I’m using the grey as a base, and still deciding which of these to use as the contrasting yet complementary colour.

Aren’t these colours just amazing?
