It’s been exactly a year since I designed my ‘Late Summer Sunsets’ blanket for The Knitting Network which was available as a yarn pack complete with the pattern… you can read more about it here
And now, in collaboration with The Knitting Network, I’ve crocheted it all over again in all new carefully selected sunset colours using Stylecraft Special DK! And I’m super happy to announce that the new yarn packs complete with the revised pattern are now on sale!
Here’s the link…
I know that lots of people have tried to purchase the old kits but they’ve been sold out for a while so I’m really pleased to be able to bring you these new colours which I’m so very happy with… 🙂
I’ve absolutely loved crocheting this blanket again and it was my perfect holiday project during a recent visit to beautiful Cornwall…
It was such enjoyable and mindful crochet, with the simple stitches used and the colour changes keeping me on my toes… the perfect project for crochet on the go! 🙂
The new colours I’ve chosen are such rich, warm sunset colours and it’s been an absolute pleasure to crochet this blanket again. I crocheted it in 2 weeks… a whole blanket crocheted in 2 weeks is quite an achievement!
For those of you who are on Instagram, I’m taking part in a virtual yarn festival this Saturday 29th August. It involves me going live on the Yorkshire Yarn Fest Instagram page for 15 minutes. I’ll be releasing another brand new design which I’m super excited about plus talking about all things Coastal Crochet. I’ll have this blanket to show you all too if you want to see it. My time is 2.10pm – 2.25pm UK time… 🙂 ❤️
The pattern for my Late Summer Sunsets blanket will only be available with the kit… it’s a blanket I have designed and made exclusively for The Knitting Network so the pattern won’t be available directly from me.
For now I’ll leave you with some more sunset photos… it isn’t until very late summer that the sun will set over the sea once more for us here on the south east coast of England. Something nice to look forward to as the darker days approach… 🙂
We’ve had really good summer weather this year and my family and I have made the most of living so close to the sea… plenty of sea swims, especially during the recent heat wave. I’m not sure I’m ready for autumn yet… but the sunsets will certainly help!
Happy Crocheting Everyone… 🙂 🙂 ❤️
That is so beautiful. Will definitely make it.
Glad you like it! 😊❤️
It looks a gorgeous make and the colours are wonderful – I’ve just started your seaside stash blanket and I think Late Summer Sunsets will be my next project. Can’t wait 😊
Fabulous Jane! Enjoy…. 😊❤️
Ohh such a pity that it is only available with the wool package. I live in Namibia and will not be able to order this, but it is a beautiful blanket and the colors are awe one.
Thank you so much… yes, that is a shame… ❤️❤️❤️
I might just get myself similar color, they have style raft special in our only dollies wool shop here in Windhoek and start the 3. Ssbb blanket in those summer colors.
That’s a great idea! It will look gorgeous in these colours… enjoy it! 😊❤️
Thank you so much! 😊❤️
Wow! Beautiful colours and design! 😍
Thank you so much! 😊❤️
Wonderful blanket – spectacular photos.
Thank you Sandra! 🥰❤️❤️
Now I want to make it all over again!
I really enjoyed making it all over again!! 😃❤️❤️
That is a beautiful afghan that looks like the sunset. Love it
Thank you Janice! 😊❤️
Gorgeous blanket and photography, I keep wanting to go back for another look… I just love those colour contrasting bobbles, learnt to make them with your Seaside Stash busting blanket. My bobbles have unfortunately gone flat with use (my boys snuggle under the blanket every night and boys are not exactly gentle on things…) Is this to be expected, or should I make the bobbles tighter?
Thank you Maria…. some flattening I suppose is inevitable but if you secure them a little tighter that will certainly help! 😊❤️❤️
Gorgeous!! I love the colors. My favorite pictures of those with Salty!!
Thank you! 😊❤️🐾
Missed it yet again😿 Hope back in stock soon. Do you know the colours so maybe could do Stash busting blanket instead please?
Hi Helen… I’ve been told they’re coming back in stock this week!! 😄❤️
Love the colours
Thank you! 😊❤️
Just started the blanket – what lovely colours and the yarn is great to work with. Just have one question about the pattern… row 10 says do not turn, restarting the new row at the beginning of row 11, but wouldnt that mean the bubbles of the next colour combination would be on the wrong side?
Hi Alicia… these rows form a unique little stitch pattern… the pattern is definitely correct so go with it and you’ll see what happens! Enjoy… 😊❤️
Last question I promise!! Does this mean the bubbles pop each side or do I just make that the right side again?
Hi Alicia…. the bobbles will always be made with the right side facing you and are popped to the right side. These rows are a little different… go with it !! 🙂 🙂
Ok thanks for the clear up, that makes sense now
