Charlotte’s Universe Video Tutorial Part 6

Part 6 of Charlotte’s Universe Blanket CAL is bit of déjà vu. In Part 6 we are repeating some of the rows we made in part 2, and turning the blanket back into a square. I am making my Strawberry Ice Cream version of Charlotte’s Universe using Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn. The pink and purple colors really work well together, even if I say so myself.

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

  • 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

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

You can buy Scheepjes Stone Washed from Wool Warehouse (UK), Jimmy Bean Wools (USA), Love Crafts (USA), The Knitting Network (UK), Caro’s Atelier (NL/EU), or your local Scheepjes Stockist.

Here is my color placement for Charlotte’s Universe Part 6, I purposefully repeated the color placement I used for part 2 to give the blanket a wholistic feel.

52A – 821 Pink Quartzite
53A – 821 Pink Quartzite
54A – 821 Pink Quartzite
55A – 821 Pink Quartzite
56A – 821 Pink Quartzite
57D – 818 Lilac Quartz
58A – 821 Pink Quartzite
59B – 820 Rose Quartz
60E – 811 Deep Amethyst
61A – 821 Pink Quartzite
62D – 818 Lilac Quartz
63F – 836 Tourmaline
64A – 821 Pink Quartzite
65A – 821 Pink Quartzite
66E – 811 Deep Amethyst
67B – 820 Rose Quartz

For some 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 slip stitch to the corner and use the last slip stitch in the corner space to change 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).

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

    1. I cannot make an estimate for you, I’m sorry. The XL is significantly thicker than the regular stone washed, so you will use a lot more yarn. Your blanket will also be VERY large an heavy. Possibly you will need double the yarn, and have a blanket that is double in size.
