. The colours in the designers colourway were rich and bold, totally up my street, but not what I was looking for. I will be away for nearly a week to visit a famous Music Festival in Germany, and of course my crochet will come with me! Hello, Today I want to show you a really interesting pattern! The pattern for this design eventually turned out to be really simple, but getting the design to tesselate took me an age and I came up with loads of really complicated designs before settling on this simple design based on a Granny Hexagon. I am a major fan of this yarn, however I know that many people find wool a little scratchy or have a wool allergy so we will be releasing the design as a pattern only in the new year. 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. The Mystical Lanterns crochet pattern comes in 3 styles. This was my final design which I tweaked slightly as I went.
So I went ahead and ordered my kit which includes all the wool you need plus a very detailed instruction how to make the shapes and join them! My Grandma had been wanting a throw for her newly decorated bedroom but was struggling to find a green one that she liked that was modern enough to fit in with her theme. I hooked the first three rounds following the pattern using slip stitches to get to the starting point of each new round. You can choose from a pattern for a shawl, a scarf, or a blanket. I wanted to have the blue coloured shawl kit Aurora with real Shetland Wool but it was sold out for quite some time.

If you wish to use an alternative yarn for these projects it is up to you to make sure you choose the correct yarn weight and length and that your chosen yarn achieves the correct tension. Each ogee is made of 4 different colours.
Up until now, this pattern was only available in kit form. My joining colour is silver. Finally, the Storm palette is inspired by Shetland - a place I am always dreaming of returning to.

The name of a repeated tessellating design, like the one Jane has used in this design, is called an 'Ogee' pattern in Arabesque design. One week in and I had 30 motifs. This beautiful and unusual blanket has been created by Jane Crowfoot, who also designed the exquisite Lily Pond throw. I won't share the surprise here though as that would defeat the point of the mystery! It is By Jane Crowfoot and is called Mystical Lanterns. I used my Pingouin cotton yarn to do my first sample. So interesting, Ingrid, that you should choose motifs of this 'ogee' shape to make after your Winkle Vest.

My yarn arrived mid March. This Mystical Lanterns Crochet Pattern is based on granny hexagon with some modifications. It was a pattern that I had seen before and had wanted to hook. Were you aware of that coincidence? Having designed the lantern shapes, my next design stage was deciding what yarn to use. I didn't find it very difficult and was pleased with how it looked.
I hope you enjoyed this post as well, feel free to leave your comments below, thank you so much! I'm already very excited about it! I should also mention how awesome I think the back of the blanket turned out. Either way, your brain is tuned into a creative channel.
