In Bloom Part 2 Video Tutorial

I am still working on my In Bloom cushion and video tutorials, and this week I have the video tutorial for part 2 ready for you. In Bloom is a crochet along designed by Johanna Lindahl from Mijo Crochet. In part 2 we are making a square behind the flower we made last week.



The yarn that I’m using is Scheepjes Catona yarn which is a 100% mercerized cotton, sport weight yarn. These are the colors I have selected for my In Bloom, 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 10 – 130 : Old Lace
  • Round 11 – 130 : Old Lace
  • Round 12 – 130 : Old Lace

Video Tutorial

In part 2 of In Bloom we are making the square behind the central flower. With this video tutorial I show you step-by-step how to make it. Just an extra note for this part; you need to drop a hook size to 3.0mm for the first rounds of part 2, rounds 10 to 17. Then, when you get to the linen stitch rounds, consider going up a hook size to 3.5mm again to prevent your work from pulling.

Next week I will release the video for part 3 of In Bloom. If you are making this pattern along with me, I would love to see your work. Feel free to share your work on my Facebook page, or tag me in one of your posts on Instagram.

With love,

  3. Hello Esther,
    I don’t have a 3.0mm hook, and have already completed part 1 with 3.5mm

    Should I use 2.75.. or 3.25mm? Hoping to get away from having to purchase 3.0mm.
