Designed by Helen Shrimpton, Whispers from the Past is a beautiful blanket that she created for her Autumn 2016 CAL (Crochet Along).

Helen was taught to crochet by her Nana and has based Whispers from the Past on some of her fondest crochet memories, using a combination of traditional stitch patterns, and adding her own unique twist.  During the weekly posts for this project, Helen shared the stories behind the stitches used to make squares, panels, or edging. The comprehensive instructions include photo tutorials and this is an ideal project for intermediate crocheters who would like to improve their skills.

Although the CAL has now finished, the pattern for this beautiful blanket is still available, for free on Helen's blog. You'll find all of the parts here.

This blanket is available in three different colourways in with two being crocheted in Stylecraft Special DK and Special Aran. Use the drop-down menu to select the colourway that you would like.
