After I released the The “Nomad by Fate” triangle wrap quite a lot of people asked for a blanket/square version. I was sure that it was easy to adapt but in the end I realised, that I had to write a whole new pattern, even if the graphical pattern is the same. So this took longer than expected.
I decided to make a seven colour version this time, using Scheepjes Colour Crafter again.
It was also an opportunity to step outside my own comfort zone and use colours I usually would not call my favourites.
From left to right: 1061 / Meppel, 1828 / Zutphen, 1023 / Tiel, 1241 / Den Bosch, 1432 / Heerlen, 1390 / Amersfoort, 1240 / Ommen
I guess my colour choice can be summed as “candyshop”.
To make things as easy as possible for you I also decided to write a chart this time for those of you who have a hard time reading all abbreviations. I really hope this will help.
I recommend to read the general pattern notes to understand the pattern even if you decide to use the chart. I think using both, chart and written pattern will be the easiest way to crochet the pattern even if it is of course fully possible to just follow the written instructions.
The pattern is not tested. If you find mistakes or have questions, contact me here, on Instagram or Facebook.
As I wanted to release this pattern as fast as possible, I did not manage to crochet a whole blanket. It is more a sample, but it worked out just fine. The pattern is highly adjustable in length and width. So it really does not matter if you want to crochet a pillow or a king size afghan.
My blanket needed a proper blocking this time and I also heard that a few people had to step down one needle size when crocheting my patterns. It may be so, that I crochet harder than others… So do not follow the pattern blindly.
I am really curious how you are going to use this pattern. Colour choices, sizes and adoptions… really looking forward to see your creations.
If you use my patterns and post pictures in social medias it would be nice to link or refer to my blog www.martinupnorthblog.wordpress.com and use #martinupnorth . Feedback is more than welcome!
More adventures ahead, more to come soon from up north…
