Elements is a blanket that has a unique textured look and feel. The blanket changes shape several times which makes it both interesting to look at and fun to work on. The blanket is framed with a set of squares and finished with a border which you can easily extend if you want your blanket to be larger. The Stonewashed blanket as I have made it is about 145cm (60inch) square.
Colorway and yarn amounts
For the purple gradient Elements shown in the video tutorials, I have used the following yarn amounts. These amounts are higher than the yarn amounts given in the written pattern because I have extended my border. I have used:
- 7 x Moonstone (801)
- 7 x Lilac Quartz (818)
- 8 x Deep Amethyst (811)
- 7 x Lepidolite (830)
- 9 x Boulder Opal (804)
I have made a playlist containing all the video tutorials for all 12 parts of Elements CAL. You can skip to a certain round by following the time stamps in the video description of each part.
Update about the written pattern
The written pattern is no longer available for free. Please check the Ravelry page of the designer for a written copy of the pattern. The video tutorials are still available for free, and will remain so indefinitely.
My Elements blanket
I really enjoyed making my Elements blanket. It’s a lovely design that works up beautifully and the Stone Washed yarn has a beautiful drape. The finished blanket is about 145cm (60inch) square and I made it using my own colorway. In my Color Chart document I give you the colors for each round of my blanket. My blanket is rather heavy, so if you you prefer a lighter blanket consider using a DK weight yarn such as Scheepjes Color Crafter.
