Back in 2016, Jane Crowfoot released a pattern for a beautifully elegant blanket, inspired by the blue and cream Delftware pottery from The Netherlands.For 2019, Stylecraft, Jane and Simply Crochet have got together to launch a competition where you can design your own colour palette using shades from Stylecraft’s DK range of yarn.
“This design has so much scope in regards to colour combinations,” says Jane, “I am intrigued to know what it could look like using completely different yarn palettes.”
“I find it fascinating how recolouring a design can completely change the way it looks,” she continues.” With this in mind I thought it would be fun to invite you to colour in a chart representation of one of the motifs to see what wonderful ideas you can come up with!“
One overall winner will receive a prize of £150 and the final Stylecraft DK pack to make the Delft blanket in their own colour palette. The two runners-up will each receive a prize of £50 plus a yarn colour pack. Later on in the year, all three finalists and their names and colour inspiration will appear in Simply Crochet magazine.
How to enter
Using a maximum of eight colours and your own trusty pencils or pens, colour in the motif with your own selection of shades. There are many fabulous shades in the Stylecraft range of DK yarns for inspiration. An entry pack with the main motif chart, mini chart guides and entry forms is available to download from www.janiecrow.co.uk/delft, or you’ll find the form in issue 80 of Simply Crochet.
The closing date is 15 February 2019 and only entries by post will be accepted. For full terms and conditions, see www.janiecrow.co.uk/delft.
