Winter Wonderland is my current test project and the reason why it is pretty quite here. Ana really is keeping me busy!
Finally I can at least share some sneak peeks of this lovely pattern by Ana Morais Soares from One Skein of Love.
It will be her next Cal, starting on November 11. For 6 weeks she will publish a part of the pattern once a weeK. So the last part, the border, will be released on December 16. For those who want to finish it before Christmas. The blanket consists of 14 different patterns, all of which are related to winter or Christmas.
For her blanket, Ana used a lovely yarn from hobbii, called Winter Glow. Hobbi is a European online shop, originally located in Denmark.
Winter Glow is a wonderful variegated yarn (wool and acrylic mix) and the fiber varies a bit in thickness. It is ranged as Aran yarn. Ana combined two green shades of Winter Glow and a solid cream Acrylic yarn.
After sharing my project in several Facebook groups I was often asked how much yarn would be needed in DK quality.
Well, since Ana used about 3.100 m of yarn for her blanket, you need about 1.100 g DK yarn in total (based on Stylecraft Special DK). The actual consumption naturally depends on how many colours you use and what the colour combination will look like.
For all those who have difficulties to work out how much they will need from another yarn, I have put some information here.
For my blanket I use Stylecraft Special DK in White, Silver, Grey, Graphite and Lipstick. White is my main colour. Since I am still working on my blanket I can’t say exactly how much yarn I will need. I roughly calculated 5 balls of White, 2 balls Lipstick and 2 – 3 balls of the other colours. Probably a little too much, but I wanted to be on the safe side.
For all who are interested, I will publish here which colors I used for each row.
I hope you will take part in this great Cal. You can find the pattern here.
At this point, many thanks for the nice compliments I received on my choice of colour. To be honest, I am not very good at choosing colours. That’s why I’ve looked at a lot of mood boards lately. I found this color combination at Pippin Poppycock. So the credit goes to her!
Have a nice weekend 💕
