Charlotte part 2 – Video Tutorial

Today the second part in a short three-part series in which I will be releasing video tutorials for Charlotte, designed by Dedri Uys. Last week I showed you part 1 in which we made the central square, this week for part 2 we are making the square larger by adding triangles to it.

In this second part of Charlotte I show you how to make the triangles around the center square. You need to make 4 of these triangles, one on each edge of the square.  The result is again a square, but much larger.


The colors that I am using are Herb Garden, Wisteria Arch, Bird Bath and Wishing Well, all available from Wool Warehouse or your Scheepjes stockist, with a 4mm hook. This week the colorway is very easy, for each row of part 2, that is row 19 to 28, I used Herb Garden (702). The green variegated color of the triangles really make the design pop as you can see in this photo of Charlotte in the snow.

We again had snow over the weekend. I have completely had it with winter and am seriously longing for spring. I treated myself to a small bunch of tulips, nothing says spring to me like tulips, even if it is only inside my house. Now if we could just convince the weather outside that it’s time to change…. I have now shown you the first two parts of Charlotte. Next week, the third and final part.

With love,

  1. Dear Esther, Your instructions are so easy to follow and just listening to them gives me great confidence that I can follow it and create the beautiful blanket. Thank you! I love the colours in the opening illustration of Video 1, Video 2 etc (blue, grey and cream) and I was wondering what yarn that is and what are the names of the colours. It is so subtle. I would be most grateful if you could tell me.
    Again, thank you so much for these videos – they make the blanket available to so many people.

    Kind regards,

    jan Dugan
