I am so excited to share with you my new blanket Crochet Along with West Yorkshire Spinners, Hidden Treasures, which is starting tomorrow (17/01).
The blanket comes in two variations: Two-colour 75 x 75 cm and multi-colour measuring approx. 75 x 98 cm. you can make the as large as you like, but of course you will need more yarn. They are both made out of gorgeous squares and worked using the beautiful WYS Bo Peep Pure. The yarn is DK weight, 100% wool and so soft!!
The CAL will take place over 6 weeks, with a pattern for each square being released every week and the final part being all about the joining and edging. The patterns will be free and available to download from West Yorkshire Spinners website. Each pattern contains a chart and written instructions and is also accompanied by an in-depth tutorial video available on West Yorkshire Spinners YouTube channel.
I have also recorded an introduction video below.
