Charlotte’s Universe Video Tutorial Part 3

The first 3 parts of Charlotte are also the first 3 parts for Charlotte’s Universe Blanket CAL, so I am sharing these first 3 parts with you in quick succession. The original Charlotte’s Universe as design by Dedri Uys is made using 3 colors, but I am going slightly over the top with 7 colors of Scheepjes Stone Washed for my Strawberry Ice Cream version. Still, Part 3 is a very calm part and I am actually only using 2 colors.

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).
