Sophie, Jack & Lydia

Last week we completed Sophie’s Universe, but luckily the CAL isn’t over just yet. This week we have the option to extend Sophie with two additional squares Jack and Lydia. I have made two videos showing how to make these squares. You can find them on the dedicated video page of my blog.

Jack and Lydia

You need 18 squares in total and then you are ready to attach them to Sophie, 9 on each end. I used the zipper join to connect them because I want to match the end created with the back-post stitches on the last round. If you don’t like this join, simply use another one. Dedri has given a few options on her blog. Of course I have also made a video showing how to connect these squares to Sophie. 🙂 Also this video you can find on the dedicated video page of my blog.

So after all that work, what does Sophie look like? Here some pics to give you an idea. I have given my Sophie’s Universe the name ‘A beautiful mess’ because that just about describes my color planning. There was no color planning 😀 I literally took it one round at a time looking at which yarn I had available. My main goal was to finish off all those leftover yarn that I have from previous projects. I definitively succeeded on that part. Almost no leftovers anymore which gives me a good excuse to buy new yarn!

If you would like to buy yarn packs for making these lovely squares, Deramores now has color packs available for Lydia in Cotton 8, Softfun and Stonewashed XL (expected soon), and Jack in Cotton 8, Softfun, and Stonewashed XL (coming soon). These yarn packs match the original packs for Sophie’s Universe.

  2. Thank you all of your tutorials have been so thorough and easy yo explain every thing so well . If you wanted to attach the Lydia and Jack squares all the way around I suppose you would have to make 11 for the other 2 sides and attach them the same way. Thank you again I can’t wait for what comes next. Kindest regards

    1. Happy to help! Yes, if you want to keep your sophie square you will need 11 extra squares on each of the other 2 sides. This means you will have to make 40 squares in total. Sure you are up to it? 🙂 That is a lot of work! Be sure to show Dedri the result. She would love to see it.


  3. I have watched your videos and loved them, although I haven’t started my own Sophie yet. But I disagree with the name of your Sophie: as twigwoman says, it’s stunning! And here’s a question. We know who Sophie is named after. What about Jack and Lydia?
    From Pearl, who is swooning over your Sophie. 🙂

  4. What lovely videos you have made. When I found myself floundering from time to time you made it all so easy to understand. Thank you so much. I am still undecided as to weather I will make the squares. I love it as is. I am going to wait to see how it looks with the boarders before I make my final decision. Thanks again for your wonderful work. Cheers from Australia xx
