Persian Tiles Eastern Jewels Crochet Kit and Pattern in Stylecraft Yarn
The original design by Jane Crowfoot is called Persian Tiles and has been extremely popular worldwide. Jane is a very generous designer so when Lucia Dunn approached her and Stylecraft with an alternative colour palette everyone was intrigued to see how it would look.
Lucia is known for the joyful use of colour on her blog, Lucia’s Fig Tree, and her interpretation of this iconic design is quite simply vibrant. Taking the inspiration for her palette from summer in her home country of Italy, and sea villages on the Italian shores, Lucia has used different colours in the Stylecraft Special DK range in each motif, much like the multi-coloured houses in these villages, to give a more bohemian feel.
Stylecraft have produced a beautiful 12 page booklet listing the colour charts for each of the pieces that make up this stunning design. You will need a copy of the Persian Tiles pattern to go with the booklet in order to make up the pattern.
There are two options for this pack, the first is all of the yarn you need to create Lucia's version of the blanket along with the printed colour chart booklet and a copy of the original Persian Tiles blanket pattern which will give you everything you need to complete the project. The second option includes the yarn and colour chart booklet but not the printed Persian Tiles blanket pattern, this kit is perfect if you already own the pattern but want to recreate the blanket in this new colourway.
The pack contains 14 x 100g balls of Stylecraft yarn including 13 x balls of Stylecraft Special DK in the following shades
- Buttermilk x 3
- Storm Blue x 1
- Pistachio x 1
- Tomato x 1
- Spice x 1
- Violet x 1
- Duck Egg x 1
- Mustard x 1
- Sage x 1
- Fondant x 1
- Vintage Peach x 1
- And one ball of Stylecraft Life DK in Fuchsia
Eastern Jewels Pack with Yarn and Colour Chart and Printed Pattern (yarn and colour chart option does not include pattern)
The products received were great once they finally arrived. Apparently the whole shipment was delayed due to one colour being missing and the system wouldn't allow for it to be sent separately, even though I suggested it and I had to chase twice, the second time I pointed out the colour was now in stock according to the website. A little disappointed with the service in that respect.
Extensive website, great selection of yarns, patterns and kits and wonderful customer service
I haven't started to work on this beautiful blanket yet but I'm really looking forward to it. Thank you.
Was notified that this was back in stock & ordered it. Now working on a different project but will start when I am finished. I also ordered & received the original blue colorway Persian Tiles Kit but will work the Eastern Jewels Kit first. Beautiful kits.
My overall experience was excellent. Arrived quicker than expected.
