Bargello Crochet Blanket Make-Along and Resources for New Knitters
Two of our favourite suppliers have come up with some fabulous ideas this month.
Stylecraft are highlighting this fabulous Crochet throw. Designed by Anne & Michelle from Crochet Between Worlds, it's a bold and beautiful blanket that gives the impression of twists and waves with a 3D effect. The effect is made by keeping the height of each row the same (it's worked in rows of treble-crochets (UK) / Doubles (US)) but by varying the width of the blocks.
Stylecraft are hosting a make-along in their Facebook Group and members of that group can get a 25% discount on the price of the pattern! The pattern uses US crochet terminology and is available on Ravelry at US $ 4.99 before discount (approximately £3.65).
We have some yarn packs for the 3 beautiful colourways - you can find them on our kits page.
Resources for New Knitters
King Cole have been publishing a series of blog posts aimed at helping new knitters get to grips with the craft. So far we've been impressed with the amount of information packed into each easy-to-digest post. For example: the first post includes some information on the different yarn weights and has a video about choosing needles. It's a great way to help people in this time when face-to-face classes are not possible.
