Elements CAL blanket – video tutorials, colorway and yarn amounts

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:

You can buy Scheepjes Stone Washed from Wool Warehouse (UK), Jimmy Bean Wools (USA), Love Crafts (USA), The Knitting Network (UK), Caro’s Atelier (NL/EU), or your local Scheepjes Stockist.

Video Tutorials

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.

  1. Hi Esther
    I hope that you are doing well. I was wondering how big did your blanket turn out to be in the end. It is so beautiful and you picked great colors.
    Have a good one.

  2. Hi , I started this project. I am using the Catona yarn and finished part 2 of the video. I have a question about blocking my piece and have not done this before. I read up on how to block. I was wondering how would I know how big to block my square or how many inches should my piece come out to?

  3. Hello I love this pattern, it´s so fun to do. I am also in a group doing tatting, know my friends would like to try. Now the problem, is there hopefully a translation in Swedish. I have not find any.

  4. This design is absolutely beautiful and you explain it so well even I understood it. Thank you so much. I’ve been admiring these patterns on Pintrest for a while but I thought them too complicated for me but you solved the mystery. Thank you so very much for this clear and easy to understand video. I’ll be back when I choose my yarn.

  5. Hello Esther, I love this pattern! But when I click on the link to ‘Elements CAL written patterns and general information’ it takes me to Hook & Yarn shop which is in Dutch. Is there something wrong with the link or just me?
