Stylecraft Carousel Blanket CAL Pack - Special DK

9 reviews

Created by well-established designer Sue Pinner, the Carousel Blanket is a gorgeous crochet pattern which was chosen by Stylecraft for their Autumn 2016 CAL (Crochet Along). Inspired by the sights and sounds of traditional fairgrounds and circuses, Sue has incorporated all the fun of the fair into her beautiful design, and it’s easy to imagine the merry-go-round, helterskelter and coconut shies just waiting to be enjoyed.

Although the CAL has now finished the pattern is still available from the Stylecraft website. The instructions are available in UK and US crochet terms, and there are video instructions to accompany each part.

The Carousel Blanket Crochet Along is an ideal opportunity for crocheters who have mastered the basic stitches and would like to improve their skills. It includes a selection of geometric shapes including pentagons, hexagons, octagons and trapezoids. The shapes are crocheted individually from the centre outwards, and then joined together.

For this version of the CAL, Sue has chosen to use the brightest and boldest shades of Stylecraft Special DK to reflect the excitement and adventure of a carousel on a sunny summer day, and the vibrant result would be perfect for a child's bedroom, a conservatory or summerhouse, or as a statement piece in a bold, modern interior.

This colour pack contains 17 x 100g balls of Stylecraft Special DK in the following shades:

  • 2 x Lipstick
  • 1 x Parma Violet
  • 1 x Cream
  • 1 x Clematis
  • 1 x Magenta
  • 1 x Fuchsia Purple
  • 1 x Spice
  • 1 x Citron
  • 1 x Mustard
  • 1 x Pistachio
  • 1 x Grass Green
  • 1 x Aspen
  • 1 x Duck Egg
  • 1 x Turquoise
  • 1 x Aster
  • 1 x Lavender.

When complete, your blanket will measure approximately 152cm (60”) in diameter, and you will need a 4mm crochet hook, locking stitch markers, a tapestry needle, scissors and a tape measure.

The Carousel Blanket CAL colour pack has been created in two versions, and is also available as Stylecraft Carousel Blanket CAL Pack - Batik DK, where the bright bold shades of Stylecraft Special DK have been replaced with the softer multi-tonal shades of Stylecraft Batik. This creates a delightful vintage look, as though the fairground has been weathered by decades of sun and wind, and the colours faded with time.

Stylecraft Carousel

I'd been wanting to make this for a while and bought the Stylecraft special dk kit. The yarn is lovely to use but a couple of the colours seemed to split more easily. It didn't spoil my enjoyment of the project though.

I have already made the Carousel blanket in both Stylecraft Special DK and Batik. It is a lovely pattern to make up and so colourful. My French friends saw the Carousel blanket and loved it so much that I am making one for them as a surprise present and once again I am loving the project. I would recommend this project even if you are fairly new to crochet.

Great Blanket Pattern

I made this blanket and it came out great. The yarn was super easy to work with and although i was not sure about some of the colors when i received the kit it came together really nicely. The pattern was also really easy to follow.
