I am so excited about this post and to be able to share my FOLK QUEEN BLANKET , and more so my lovely limited edition PACKS!
As you most likely already know the FOLK QUEEN BLANKET is the result of a collaboration with my wonderful friend Tinna Þórudóttir Þorvaldar. And it has been an amazing opportunity to design my own colourway for her upcoming QUEEN CAL.
THE QUEEN CAL ( crochet-a-long) will be available on Tinna’s Raverly from the 18th of September, BUT on her RAVERLY ACCOUNT there is already the introduction available so please do check it out!!
If you are new to Mosaic Crochet, then I recommend you check out Tinna’s YouTube channel where she has various tutorials available. She will also publish step by step tutorials for the Queen CAL there, once the CAL starts!
I am going to give you some more details about my version: and I made a little video about too that you can watch here:
So let’s list some facts…
I called my version THE FOLK QUEEN because the inspiration has been Northern traditional national costumes and landscapes a tribute to Tinna’s Nordic Heritage and mine too , as I come, originally , from a small village in Northen Italy .
You can get a pack ( kit) to make The Folk Queen Blanket EXCLUSIVELY FROM MY WEBSITE, no other retailer either brick and mortar or on-line sells this version .
What you get in the pack?
17 BALLS OF YARN : A mixture of Stylecraft LIFE DK ( 100gr balls ) and Stylecraft BATIK DK (50gr.balls) .Both yarn are a blend of 75%premium acrilic and 25% wool.
A personalised wooden tag with engraved ‘THE FOLK QUEEN’ that you can sew in your blanket once it is finished.
A print out with details and Tips about my version and a list row-by-row of the colours used in the same order as they are worked following the Charts provided in Tinna’s Pattern.
If you have read Tinna’s intro to the CAL you already know that there are several sizes and vesions to choose from:
For THE FOLK QUEEN I used the charts for:
TRADITIONAL STYLE QUEEN, the SMALL HORIZONTAL version.
My blanket measures ,once blocked, 105 cm x 135cm so a lovely throw size that you can see in full details in this video:
