Designed by Helen Shrimpton, Whispers from the Past is a beautiful blanket which she has 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.

Whispers from the Past lasts for 9 weeks, and Helen will tell the stories behind the stitches you will use 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.

The CAL starts on 14th October, and the ongoing instructions will be available from the CAL-Crochet Along Facebook Group and once the CAL has finished, the pattern will remain free on Helen’s website

If you haven’t taken part in a CAL before, it is a friendly, supportive, and very enjoyable way of becoming part of a small crochet community, sharing your progress and getting hints and tips from an online group of fellow crocheters, all creating the same item. If you prefer, you can create your Whispers from the Past blanket on your own as an ongoing project as it is not necessary to start on the 14th October when the CAL begins, and many people start partway through, or at a later date.

This Whispers From The Past – Pretty Pastels reflects Helen’s thoughts and feelings about the 50s, and the colour pack contains 13 x 100g balls of Stylecraft DK:

3 x Duck Egg, 3 x Cream, 3 x Wisteria, 2 x Soft Peach, 2 x Lemon.    

When complete, your Whispers from the Past – Pretty Pastels will measure approximately 51.5 x 63” (131 x 160 cm) and you will need a 4mm (US G/6) crochet hook.

If you would prefer a larger blanket, there are two Aran versions available, which will measure approximately 51.5 x 63” (131 x 160 cm) and you will need a 4mm (US G/6) crochet hook.

The Whispers from the Past CAL colour pack has been created in four versions, two DK and two Aran weight: 

Whispers From The Past - Purely Patriotic in Stylecraft Special Aran

Whispers From The Past - Brown Sugar in Stylecraft Special Aran

Whispers From The Past - Paint Box in Stylecraft Special DK
