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

I have finished my blanket which means I can now give you my final yarn amounts. These amounts are higher than the official kits because I have extended my border. I have used:

Scheepjes Stone Washed is available from Wool Warehouse (UK/International), Love Crochet (US), Knotty House (CA), Caro’s Atelier (NL/EU) or your local Scheepjes Stockist. In addition to the yarn you will also need a 4mm hook. Thank you for supporting my work by buying your yarn through the links on my blog. ❤

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.

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.

We started Elements with a small center square in part 1, which we turned into a larger square in part 2. Part 3 started the process of making our square a circle, which kept on growing in part 4 and was finished in part 5. The circle became a square again during part 6, part 7, part 8, part 9, and part 10. When the large center piece was done we made 24 small squares during part 11 and finished with a border in part 12. I extended my border with 5 extra rounds to give it more body.

If you made an Elements blanket using my videos or would just like to share your work with me, feel free to do so on my Facebook page, in my It’s all in a Nutshell Crochet Nuts Facebook group, or by tagging me in one of your posts on Instagram.

  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?
