All my bags are packed, I am ready to go…
When going on vacation, you should only take the very essential things with you. In my case that means that I allow myself to take my happy box full of Scheepjes Cahlista with me. I plan to start a new multi color summer project and the fact that I can not decide which color I want to start with means that I have to take the entire box with me.
I try to be as structured and prepared as possible, I weigh all yarns so that I can give you the exact amount of used materials when the project is finished.
The final decision which colors I am going to use is not taken yet but I am a 100% sure that this is going to be my happy multi color summer project. You might know (because I use Scheepjes Cahlista a lot) that this yarn comes in 109 shades, it is 100% natural cotton and 50 grams are 85 meters. I am going to use a 4,5mm hook.
And as a last minute choice even 4 balls in the color Deep Violet jumped in my box and I am going to receive some Jet Black from my friends at Scheepjes soon too.
The information I can give you right now is, that I am going to do a blanket and that it is going to be based on 209 stitches, which means, that the starting chain is going to have 210 stitches.
I am going to use the mosaic technique (surprise, surprise) and that the blanket is going to have 12 to 14 colors.
I know that this is information might not be very, very useful at the moment but it is a start.
If you use my patterns and post pictures in social medias it would be nice to link or refer to my blog www.martinupnorth.com and use #martinupnorth . Feedback is more than welcome!
More from Up North soon…
