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

Said it was delivered but hasn't arrived. I've messaged and messaged but all I was told was you would contact hermes. Noting since 20/04 /2020 said was delivered. You advised on 11 /05 / 2020. That it Sally's delivrred in vacinity but nothing!!!! Angry
I am half way through this pattern and so far have loved every minute of it. I find it very easy to follow and the constant colour changes keep your interest! Just make sure you see in your ends as you go!!!
Did not receive the Persian tiles pattern. Only received the Eastern Jewels color chart. No response yet from Deramores
I absolutely love all of your beautiful patterns. Although it took a little while to get the package , I have no regrets in my purchase. I hope to buy another one soon. Absolutely great buying experience. Thanks, Shellia Easter
Unfortunately some of the yarn was badly damaged on delivery, attempts to contact customer services have failed miserably. As I had already started the blanket before finding the damaged ball it’s too late to return it. My advice would be check EVERY item before starting a project & save yourself the wasted time & effort! Very disappointing
