Ready for Part 2 of Charlotte’s Universe Blanket CAL, design by Dedri Uys?

Video Tutorial Part 2

You can find the RIGHT HANDED and LEFT HANDED video tutorials for Charlotte’s Universe on my YouTube channel. In the video description you will find time points that mark the start of each round.


My Strawberry Ice Cream Charlotte’s Universe & Color Placement

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.

  • 10 x Color A – 821 Pink Quartzite
  • 9 x Color B – 820 Rose Quartz
  • 5 x Color C – 810 Garnet
  • 5 x Color D – 818 Lilac Quartz
  • 5 x Color E – 811 Deep Amethyst
  • 7 x Color F – 836 Tourmaline
  • 2 x Color G – 819 New Jade

You can buy Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn from Wool Warehouse (UK/Int), The Knitting Network (UK/Int), Caro’s Atelier (NL/EU), and many other Scheepjes stockists world wide!

My color placement for my Strawberry Ice Cream Charlotte’s Universe Part 2 is as follows, using a 3.5mm hook:

RoundColor
19D – 818 Lilac Quartz
20A – 821 Pink Quartzite
21B – 820 Rose Quartz
22E – 811 Deep Amethyst
23A – 821 Pink Quartzite
24D – 818 Lilac Quartz
25F – 836 Tourmaline
26A – 821 Pink Quartzite
27A – 821 Pink Quartzite
28E – 811 Deep Amethyst

For many of these rounds I do not follow the official color placement, meaning that sometimes I change colors where the original pattern does not and visa versa. You can either start the round with a standing stitch using the new color, or use the last yarn-over of the last stitch of the current row to change colors for the next row.


Official 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).

If you would like to make your own color combination, you will need 37 balls of Scheepjes Softfun (DK/Light Worsted Weight/#3) in the following combination, where color B is the contrast color.

  • 21 balls of Color A
  • 10 balls of Color B
  • 6 balls of Color C

You can find more tips and a coloring chart to help you find your perfect color placement on Dedri’s blog HERE.

There are Charlotte’s Universe kits available from Wool Warehouse (UK/Int), or you can purchase Scheepjes Stoftfun yarn individually from Caro’s Atelier (NL) or many Scheepjes stockists world wide!

    1. Hallo Ria,
      Ik heb mijn Stone Wased versie in roze/paars nog niet af, dus ik weet niet hoeveel garen er van welke kleur nodig gaat zijn. Ik gebruik 7 kleuren en het origineel 3, dus het is niet zomaar overzetten helaas.
      Het origineel gebruikt Softfun, dat een iets kortere looplengte heeft dan de stone washed. als je graag een stone washed in 3 kleuren wilt maken kun je de softfun hoeveelheden aanhouden en er ongeveer 2 bollen van elke kleur extra bijdoen om te compenseren voor het verschil in looplengte.
      GRoeten,
      Esther
