Last week, we had the idea of working Sophie’s Dream, which will consist of 12 Sophie’s Gardens in bold colours as a Crochet-A-Long (CAL) throughout 2o19. The pattern for Sophie’s Dream will be posted on Lookatwhatimade’s website (free) on the 29th of December 2018.
If you are at all familiar with Sophie’s Universe, you will know that she started her life as a tiny mandala, which grew into a large mandala, which grew into a square. That square was called Sophie’s Garden.
Ever since Dedri designed the pattern, she has wondered what a blanket would look like if it was made solely out of ‘Gardens’. With the internet making our world a smaller and smaller place, she has had the great privilege of seeing quite a few blankets where people have used the Gardens, including some fabulous temperature blankets!
Each Whirl yielded 3 Sophie’s Gardens (using the hook and gauge provided in the Sophie’s Dream pattern).
We will be using a different whirl colourway each quarter starting with the fabulous Rosewater Cocktail Colourway in the first quarter of 2019.
Then as Spring sets in we will switch our attention to the fresh greens of Key Lime Pi, then on into summer we will heat things up with the spicy shades of Red Velvet Sunrise and end the year with the cool tones of Blackberry Mint Chip.
You can join the CAL at any moment in time and we will get you started with the relevant shade for that particular quarter. It may be that you want to hone your skills before starting out on this journey but we are here to help whenever you are ready to join us on this adventure.
At the current time we are taking orders for the FIRST quarter and the Rosewater Cocktail Whirl. Each whirl for the CAL will cost £20 and the 2 whirlettes required will cost an additional £10 to complete the edging. You will need to select FREE LOCAL PICKUP at the checkout if you intend collecting your whirl in person. If you would prefer it posting you will need to select the postage option and it will be dispatched on Saturday 22 December.
