I’m late to the party, but hopefully I can still attend! It is with great pleasure that I announce that I am going to be making a series of video tutorials for the lovely In Bloom crochet along. In Bloom has been designed by the super talented Johanna Lindahl from Mijo Crochet in collaboration with FavoritGarner. I’m sure you all know Johanna from her classic design Lost in Time shawl, the shawl everyone seems to be making, but also Secret Paths shawl and Taiga shawl. She is in one word talented.
The yarn that I’m using is Scheepjes Catona yarn which is a good quality, sturdy 100% mercerized cotton, sport weight yarn. I have selected my own colorway for the project, and these are my colors and yarn amounts, all are Scheepjes Catona 50g balls:
- Color 1 – 1 x 246 : Icy Pink
- Color 2 – 1 x 240 : Amethyst
- Color 3 – 1 x 394 : Shadow Purple
- Color 4 – 4 x 130 : Old Lace
- Color 5 – 1 x 173 : Bluebell
- Color 6 – 1 x 247 : Blue Bird
- Color 7 – 1 x 164 : Light Navy
Scheepjes Catona is available in balls of 10g (NEW!), 25g balls, 50g balls and for limited colors also in 100g balls. There are 109 colors in the range so I’m sure that your favorite color combination must be in there also.
I used 50g balls for my In Bloom cushion. Scheepjes Catona is available from Wool Warehouse (UK/International), Deramore (UK), Love Crochet (US), Knotty House (CA) or your local Scheepjes Stockist. In addition to the yarn you will also need a 3.0mm and 3.5mm hook. Thank you for supporting my work by buying your yarn through the links on my blog. ❤
Each week for the next 8 weeks I will release a new video tutorial for In Bloom. The video tutorials will show you how to make the cushion step by step. The first video will be released next week, and the last video end of October.
This is our first collaboration and I am really excited to work with Johanna. I hope to see you next week for the first video tutorial.
