If you’ve been following the 12-part Simply Crochet Hook ‘n’ Learn throughout last year, you’ll know it’s time to construct your CAL blanket and add a pretty edge. Watching the crochet patches from the last 12 issues transform into a fully fledged blanket with just a few whipstitches will be one of the most satisfying parts of the entire project. All that’s left to do is to add the border – this will neaten the edges and tie the whole thing together. Whether you’ve worked up the pattern in the soft shades of Scheepjes Stone Washed XL or the cheery brights of ScheepjesColour Crafter, you’ll love the finished blanket which was designed by Lucy Croft. Make sure you share some of your snaps with us on our Facebook group or Instagram (use #sctreblemaker) – we can’t wait to see them!
If you’ve only just caught up with our CAL, it’s not too late to join in! You can buy special Simply Crochet Hook ‘n’ Learn kits for both Scheepjes Stone Washed XL and Colour Crafter yarns online from www.blacksheepwools.com, www.deramores.com and www.woolwarehouse.co.uk.
If you’ve missed any parts of the pattern, the first three (Block, Waffle, Shell) are available to download for free here. You can get each of the next nine (Spike, Cable, Granny Stripe, Catherine Wheel, Puff, Apache Tears, Wave, Basketweave and Bobble) by buying back issues of Simply Crochet magazine here or from Ravelry. We will also be releasing the Hook ‘n’ Learn blanket as a complete pattern to buy on Ravelry in February.
