Persian Tiles - Eastern Jewels - Stylecraft Blanket Pack
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 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

Eastern Jewels Pack with Yarn and Colour Chart and Printed Pattern (yarn and colour chart option does not include pattern)
Never gets boring - great fun from start to finish!
I LOVED crocheting this pattern and the fact that you change colour so often keeps it interesting. The colours really lift your mood, my kids couldn't stop playing with the tiles - matching them up, deciding which they liked best. It really held my interest from start to finish and yet didn't require too much concentration to follow the pattern.

The instruction book and the colour chart are both very clear, with the crochet instructions by charts as well as in writing. Looking forward to making this.
The pack was a present and much loved
Deramores are very efficient with their delivery of goods.
This is the second crochet along kit that I have ordered. I can't wait to get started!
