Mystical Lanterns Crochet Blanket in Stylecraft Life DK
This beautiful and unusual blanket has been created by Jane Crowfoot, who also designed the fabulous and the exquisite throw.
Like Persian Tiles, this beautiful design has been inspired by Jane’s fascination with the tessellating shapes found in Moroccan architecture and design, and this stunning afghan certainly has a dream-like quality about it, with hints of the Arabian Nights.
Created using a carefully selected palette of Stylecraft Life DK, a soft, practical and hardwearing blend of acrylic and wool which is ideal for throws, blankets and homeware. The blanket uses individual ogee-shaped motifs, which are joined together to form two sets of strips. In total you will make 158 motifs, consisting of 8 strips with 11 motifs, and 7 strips with 10 motifs + two half motifs (at each end).
When completed, the blanket will be approximately 155 x 100cm (61 x 61”). To complete your blanket you will need a 4mm or 4.5mm (USG/6 or US7) crochet hook and a knitter's sewing needle. Please note that this pattern uses UK crochet terms.

Not yet started this project. Pattern looks easy to follow. Looking forward to picking my colours.

The wool was delivered simply in the plastic posting bag - this bag had a number of slits in it. Fortunately the contents were complete and it did not have to sit out in the rain. It would have been sensible to have an inner bag/container as wool is so squidgy bags are subject to puncture. That said the kit is good and i am enjoying it immensely. The pattern is very straightforward.
Excellent service lovely patterns highly recommend

Not finished it yet, but working it as a snuggle throw to match curtains, pattern easy to work and looks effective. Obviously will look better when blocked and finished but I am happy with it
