Hello Spring Cal – Part 1

Today is the day, Hello Spring Cal starts!

Since some people have asked me about it, I will publish my progress and my single parts here. So let us begin with my

Yarn and colours

I used Stylecraft Special DK and a 4 mm hook. My colours are

  • 1001 White
  • 1822 Pistachio
  • 1027 Khaki
  • 1081 Saffron
  • 1723 Tomato

When I saw Ana‘s pattern I actually had a different colour scheme in mind and my first approach was somewhat different.
But somehow it didn’t work, although I tried two different colour placements. I thought maybe it was too dark for a spring theme and I didn’t know how to go on.
But I still love my swatches so much that I haven’t frogged them yet. And I know for sure that I will use these colours at some point! So I will keep the strips. Even if that means that I cannot determine the exact consumption of Pistachio – I forgot to weigh my yarn :).

What do you think?

In search of other colour combinations I came across a drawing with stylised flowers in two different greens on a white ground. Somehow it said >Spring< to me. To get this look I choose White and Pistachio as main colours and added a little bit of Khaki. Spiced up with a few sprinkles of Saffron and Tomato.

And here are the colours I used for part 1

Oh, I almost forgot! The pattern is available here.

And last but not least, here is a photo showing all the test versions of the One Skein of Love test team.

See you next week!

    1. Thank you 💕
      Is it worth it? I think: yes! But ultimately you have to decide.
      There are 11 different designs plus the border design and the pattern is very well written (and tested 😁). Besides the written instructions with detailed pictures for each row there are also charts to work along. The pattern is easy to adapt, so you can not only make a blanket but also a table runner, wall hanging or cushion cover. What ever you like. That‘s why I think it is worth the price!
