Charlotte Part 3 – Video Tutorial

Today the third part in the short three-part video tutorial for Charlotte, designed by Dedri Uys. I have showed you part 1 in which we made the central square, and part 2 in which we grew the square by adding triangles. Now time to grow the square even more by adding a butterfly border.


Video tutorial

In this third part of Charlotte I show you how to make the butterfly border. First we make a base round using the same color yarn as the triangles, and on this we then make the butterfly border.


The colors that I am using are from the Scheepjes Secret Garden range, more specifically Herb Garden, Wisteria Arch, Bird Bath and Wishing Well, all available from Wool Warehouse or your Scheepjes stockist. I am using Secret Garden with a 4mm hook.

Round  Color Number  Color Name
29 702 Herb Garden
30 733 Wisteria Arch
31-36 735 Wishing Well

This completes the mini-series for Charlotte. I would love to see your Charlottes or your Charlotte’s Dream blankets.  If you want to you can share them with me on my Facebook page or tag me in one of your post on Instagram. You can also use #itsallinanutshell to help me find it.

With love,
