Mystery Blanket ♥ Part One
Find part one in issue 60 of Inside Crochet.
Get yourself in the mood for romance with Sabina Poonwassie’s dreamy new mystery blanket crochet-along.
"See how she leans her cheek upon her hand.
O, that I were a glove upon that hand/That I might touch that cheek!” – William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet.
This is Sabina’s favourite quote about love, and the starting point for this most romantic of blankets.
We all have romantic moments that melt our hearts, but what they all have in common is that they are gentle, delicate and beautiful but at the same time have the strength to make you feel cosseted, enveloped and protected. This is the essence of Sabina’s design. Love’s tokens are there with hearts and flowers in abundance, but it is strong enough to withstand being wrapped around and cuddled up in. As with all of our classic mystery designs, you can customise and adapt this blanket in many different ways, but if you ensure that the blocks are made and arranged in the same colour sequence and continue on to the end you will be rewarded, as there is a secret to the design that won’t be revealed until the final part.
However, don’t feel pressured – the pattern is arranged from the centre out, so simply stop when your desired size is reached to create coverlets for different purposes. 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.
