Labour of Love

Date: 19th November 2014 | Category: Issue 60, Mystery Blanket, News


In issue 60 we release our brand new mystery CAL project... here's what you'll need to join in.

This pretty blanket uses basic crochet as well as raised stitches, and also makes great use of colour and eventually appliqué within the design. We hope you will enjoy the progression – even beginner crocheters can start at step one and add to their skill level as they advance through the steps.

What you'll need:

To crochet the full blanket, you will need the following amounts of yarn:
● Rico Design Essentials Merino DK, 100% Merino wool, 50g/120m/131yds (You can use any DK weight yarn to achieve a similar effect, but we would recommend using similar colours as the colour scheme is intrinsic to the surprising finished design.)
Yarn A: Rose 01 x 5 balls
Yarn B: Pink 02 x 5 balls
Yarn C: Purple 03 x 2 balls
Yarn D: Cardinal 13 x 5 balls
Yarn E: Berry 15 x 2 balls
Yarn F: Mulberry 19 x 2 balls
Yarn G: Mauve 20 x 4 balls
Yarn H: Patina 35 x 1 ball
Yarn I: Petrol 39 x 1 ball
Yarn J: Reed 41 x 4 balls
Yarn K: Pebble 49 x 5 balls
