Laura chose very nice shades of Colour Crafter* yarn by Scheepjes (
Colour Crafter yarn is 100% premium acrylic coming in 90+ colors (reviewed HERE). It’s incredibly soft and with a very good yardage. This yarn is available for purchase in your local Scheepjes stores and also via larger retailers, such as Wool Warehouse (HERE)* (UK with international shipping).
Laura started to work on her blanket just after Wintery Octagon pattern was released in November (available HERE) and sent me pictures of the finished blanket a week ago. Together with other crochet work it took approx. 2 months to finish it. The pattern uses linen stitch background with cables over it. And compared to other overlay crochet projects this one is really fast to make.
I love the whole story of Laura’s crochet adventure. She was sharing progress pictures with me. Her blanket traveled with her to the mountains.
And it was made when it was really (crazy) cold outside. The frost in the picture below is boiling water thrown in the air. How amazing is this?
Laura collected all notes about yardages for each octagon and joining element on her Ravelry project page. You can see it HERE. Just in case you are in love with her beautiful creation and would like to make the same blanket as hers!
