In Bloom Part 1 Video Tutorial

The start of a new project is always exciting, and that is also true for In Bloom, a lovely designed by Johanna Lindahl from Mijo Crochet. In this first part of the project we are making the central flower. In the first few rounds the flower is still a bit wonky, but as it grows it starts to lay flat.



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 109 colors in balls of 10g (NEW!), 25g balls, 50g balls and for limited colors also in 100g balls.

I am following the color order as suggested by Johanna, but to make life easier for you, here is the order of my colors per round:

  • Round 1 – 246 : Icy Pink
  • Round 2 – 246 : Icy Pink
  • Round 3 – 246 : Icy Pink
  • Round 4 – 240 : Amethyst
  • Round 5 – 240 : Amethyst
  • Round 6 – 394 : Shadow Purple
  • Round 7 – 240 : Amethyst
  • Round 8 – 394 : Shadow Purple
  • Round 9 – 394 : Shadow Purple

Scheepjes Catona is available from Wool Warehouse (UK/International)Love Crochet (US), Knotty House (CA) or your local Scheepjes Stockist. Thank you for supporting my work by buying your yarn through the links on my blog. ❤

  1. I can see the first tutorial is posted, I’m in New Zealand and want to make sure I’m going to continue finding the subsequent tutorials.

    What dates will be the releases of next tutorial releases please?

    Thank you.


  2. Hey Esther,

    i’d like to know how many yarn balls i will need for the whole blanket. I’m from Germany and don’t want to waste too much money on shipping by buying the yarnballs per patch each week.

    Greetings :))
