Sophie’s Universe – Video Tutorials

We have come to the end of a beautiful project. Sophie’s Universe is all done. It was a wonderful journey in which I met a lovely designer named Dedri Uys from “Look at what I made”. She was so generous to me by giving me the opportunity to make videos of her beautiful design. I also want to thank all of you for all your lovely and encouraging comments you left on my blog and my YouTube channel about my videos.


Yarn Packs

There are several Yarn Packs available that includes everything you need. These have been assembled by Dedri and the colorway for each pack is on her blog.

There are also yarn extension packs that allow you to make the squares Jack and Lydia so that you can extend your blanket. This is what I have also done with my Sophie. These are an addition to the original packs.

Video Tutorials

I have made a playlist on my YouTube channel which contains all the videos for Sophie’s Universe. These videos are slightly old, which means that the audio isn’t always optimal, but I trust you will still be able to follow along.

My Rainbow Sophie

In my color chart you can find which yarn choices I made, or rather did not make. There was no predetermined color planning. I literally took it one row at a time looking at what was available in my yarn stash. I have made a serious hole in my stash which means I can buy new yarn! I will post soon to show you what I have bought.

Many of you though my initial name for my Sophie was not doing her justice. Hence I have given her the new name ‘Rainbow’ because she has all the colors of the rainbow in her. Just because I can’t help it. here, for the last time, some nostalgic moments of the making off Sophie’s Universe Rainbow.

With love,

      1. Hallo
        I am from South Africa, and would like to thank you for your wonderful tutorial on Sophie’s Universe. I loved every moment of making this blanket and is going to give it to my Daughter on her 21st Birthday.

  1. Esther, thanks so much for your videos. Without them, I would never have been able to finish my Sophie.


  2. I can not thank you enough for the video. It is so helpful and I would not have got the instructions as easily. Sophie is my first really advanced project and I am really enjoying it. Thank you again.

  3. This is so beautiful. You have such an amazing eye for color. I would like to do your color scheme for Sophie. Do you have a suggested quantity list for the colors you used??


      1. That works 😀. I just needed a general idea to place my order. Thank you for being who you are and so generously sharing your creativity. I love picking my own colors but when I see a color palette that just stops me and all I can say is “wow!”, then I want to do it myself. It’s fun and energizing seeing the blanket come to life as I work on it. Thank you again. 😀


  4. Dear Estha

    Is the “middle ” of Sophie’s Universe the same pattern as “Sophie’s Garden Square”?

    I would like to make the 12 squares made using Scheepjes Whirl and Scheepjes Whirlette as seen in Dedri’s Look What I Made. If so I can use your tutorials as there does not seem to be a pattern to go with the pack of yarn.
