This week we make Part 3 of d’Histoire Naturelle Blanket designed by Christina from A Spoonful of Yarn in which we find ourselves walking through a gallery filled with plants, flowers and leaves. In Part 3, we turn our blanket into a circle framed with leaves. It’s a long part, with the leaves worked using overlay crochet. In this post you find the links to the written patterns, the video tutorials, and all other things you might need under resources and video tutorials.

My d’Histoire Naturelle: Herbarium
I am using the Stone Washed Herbarium colorway to make my blanket. The square we made in part 1 turned into an octagon crawling with bugs in part 2, and now in part 3 we decorate our blanket with flowers and leaves.
As a whole, the blanket is now a circle. If you were to leave it at this point it is a beautiful mandala or rug.
I am also reading the book All the light we cannot see by Anthony Doerr, that inspired the design. I have not been able to keep to the original reading schedule; I finished the book last weekend. My son made me a page keeper in the shape of a butterfly, doesn’t it match our blanket and the book perfectly?
Next time I see you we will turn our blanket into a square, its final shape transformation.
