Charlotte’s Universe Video Tutorials

I am sure you are all super excited that Dedri has grown the beautiful Charlotte into a full sized blanket; Charlotte’s Universe. I am making full video tutorials for Charlotte’s Universe using Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn in a colorway I have named “Strawberry Ice Cream”. Find everything you need in this post.


About Charlotte’s Universe

Charlotte’s Universe is the long awaited sequel to Sophie’s Universe. All good things come to those who wait, and Charlotte’s Universe is an embodiment of the proverb. Charlotte’s Universe grows from the Charlotte Square, and just like its sibling sister, it has become a masterpiece in its own right. The finished blanket is about 160cm square using Scheepjes Softfun Aquarelle yarn and a 4.0mm hook.

Yarn and Yarn Kits

There are three official colorways for the Charlotte’s Universe blanket; Vintage Charlotte, Sunshine Charlotte and Pink Charlie. You can of course make the blanket in any colorway you like, and knowing Dedri she will love to see all your color combinations! Dedri has made the original Vintage blanket using Scheepjes Softfun Aquarel (DK/Light Worsted Weight/#3).

My Strawberry Ice Cream Charlotte’s Universe

My first Charlotte square I made using Scheepjes Secret Garden, a beautiful silk yarn. For Charlotte’s Universe I have decided to use one of my favorite blanket yarns, Scheepjes Stone Washed and I have named the colorway “Strawberry Ice Cream” . The yarn is both sturdy and soft, great for blankets.

I am using the following 7 colors of Scheepjes Stone Washed for my Strawberry Ice Cream Charlotte’s Universe together with a 3.5mm hook.

I have yarn kits available in my SHOP for Charlotte’s Universe Strawberry Ice Cream in Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn.
