Make a beautiful summer version of the little Colourful Hug blanket, designed by EclatDuSoleil.
Use a ball of Whirl (instead of the discontinued Mini Mochi in the original) and two balls of Whirlette (instead of the fingering weight merino in the original), to make a light and colourful baby blanket or small afghan.
These yarns are slightly lighter weight than the original ones, so I recommend using a 3 mm hook.
This was my customer Chantal's brilliant idea! She also made the blankets in the photos. Find out more about the history behind the blankets and the kits in this post on my blog.
The green/yellow blanket was made with version 2 of the kit, and the orange/violet blanket with version 7. In this second blanket, Chantal also added some Whirl leftovers to the last rounds of the border.
The pattern is included when buying the kit. Add it to your cart so you can download it immediately - the price will be deducted before payment.
Each kit includes 1 ball of Whirl and 2 balls of Whirlette (a total of over 2000 meters of yarn).
The kit is currently available in 8 versions:
Version 1: Whirl Dandelion Munchies + Whirlette Banana
Version 2: Whirl Key Lime Pie + Whirlette Kiwi
Version 3: Whirl Lemon Cassis + Whirlette Banana
Version 4: Whirl Licorice Yumyum + Whirlette Citrus
Version 5: Whirl Licorice Yumyum + Whirlette Licorice
Version 6: Whirl Red Velvet Sunrise + Whirlette Citrus
Version 7: Whirl Red Velvet Sunrise + Whirlette Grappa
Version 8: Whirl Turkish Delight + Whirlette Grapefruit
The yarns Whirl and Whirlette are yarns from the Dutch brand Scheepjes, spun from 60% cotton and 40% acrylic.
