The Queen Blanket Crochet-Along by Tinna Thorudottir Thorvaldar, sponsored by Stylecraft
The Queen Blanket Crochet-Along (CAL) is an exciting new project for September 2020 created by Icelandic crocheter Tinna Thorvaldar. With a love of bold colour combinations, Tinna is known for her use of mosaic designs in her striking creations, such as her Havana CAL. The Queen Blanket CAL will be crocheted using Stylecraft Special DK and is a kaleidoscope of colour and mosaic effects. The CAL will involve mosaic crochet – a crochet technique that is very easy to do but creates amazing geometric patterns. This technique also offers the benefit of not having to sew in sew in ends, as these are encased in the border of the blanket when it is added!
There are three enticing colourways for the Queen Blanket CAL, all of which are available in Stylecraft Special DK:
The Ruby Queen Blanket (colourway designed by Sue Collings)
The Tequila Sunrise Queen Blanket
The Oceania Queen Blanket
The Queen Blanket can be made in two different sizes, in each colourway:
The Small Blanket (approx. 95cm x 125cm) – this size requires just the Standard Pack
The Large Blanket (approx. 150cm x 200cm) – this size requires the Standard Pack AND the Extension Pack, OR the Large Blanket Pack
The CAL is a paid-for project and will be hosted on Tinna’s Facebook group, where there will be support available from Tinna and her admin team.
The pattern for the CAL will be released in six weekly instalments, starting on 18th September 2020. Each instalment will be available to purchase on Tinna’s Ravelry store:
Friday 18th September: Part 1
Friday 25th September: Parts 2 & 3
Friday 9th October: Part 4
Friday 16th October: Part 5
Friday 23rd October: Part 6 – the border
Tinna will also be supporting the CAL with a set of step-by-step video tutorials, which will include an introduction to colour choices as well as showing how the pattern works interactively. These video tutorials will all be available for free on Tinna’s YouTube channel.
