New CAL landing 2nd September 2022
in association with Stylecraft Yarns
So ... I set out with an idea to create a couple of designs that could be mixed and matched with my 2020 winter CAL Letitia’s Holiday … but I got a little carried away!
“HoHoHo” is a 6-part CAL, worked using the overlay mosaic crochet technique, and finished off with a simple envelope border to hide the loose ends.
The pattern is written for a small / lap blanket size (approximate finished size: 92 x 130cm), but can easily be extended by adding extra 48-stitch repeats.
The length can be extended by repeating some of the panels, or by mixing in some of the parts of Letitia’s Holiday … there are so many possibilities!
And for those of you that would rather do something a little smaller, the pattern also includes instructions for making a table runner and four coordinating placemats.
Colour packs for the blankets are available from many Stylecraft stockists.
To simplify the abbreviations, and avoid the need for separate UK and US versions, the pattern is written in Universal terms (which will be familiar to those of you who have made Flora's Fauna or my Jacquard Temperature Blanket (I originally developed this notation for that pattern).
If you are unfamiliar with mosaic crochet or the envelope border,
don’t worry, they are much easier to do than they look.
Step by step instructions are given, including lots of helpful photos, making this pattern suitable even for total beginners to mosaic crochet.
Supporting videos for each part will also be provided on my YouTube channel, including separate versions formatted specifically for left-handers.
The introduction file, which contains all the important information you will need to prepare for the CAL, including yarn requirements, gauge and abbreviations, is available from Ravelry now.
Part 1 of the pattern will be added 16th September, with the remaining parts at weekly intervals, ending with part 6 (the border) on 21st October.
Full price £7.95, but available at the special price of £5.95 (25% off) until 23rd October 2022.
The complete pattern will also be available from Etsy, and Love Crafts from 14th September, but this will NOT be discounted.
