Designed by Helen Shrimpton, Whispers from the Past is a beautiful blanket which 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 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:
