Charlotte’s Universe Video Tutorial Part 7

Today Part 7 of Charlotte’s Universe Blanket CAL is released, and that means we are now officially halfway through this 14 part crochet along. In Part 7 we start the first of several borders we are making around our blanket. I am still making my Strawberry Ice Cream version of Charlotte’s Universe using Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn. I finished my blanket this week, which means that my yarn amounts are now available, and I have added also kits to my shop.

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 7. For those of you following my colorway, you will be super excited to see the last color being added to the blanket.

68B – 820 Rose Quartz
69C – 810 Garnet
70C – 810 Garnet
71A – 821 Pink Quartzite
72G – 819 New Jade
73F – 836 Tourmaline
74A – 821 Pink Quartzite
75E – 811 Deep Amethyst

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

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

  1. I really want to say thank you for the videos that you do. I know that the only reason I feel I can make this blanket is because of your videos! About four years ago I decided I wanted to try to knit or crochet again. It had been years. But Esther, these videos. It’s hard to describe how easy you make the projects. Also I want to thank you for introducing me to yarn from Scheepjes. The yarn I am using for this is like the Scheepjes “Velvet” only it comes out of England from Stylecraft. I cannot even believe how gorgeous this blanket is. On l’Histoire, I got stuck at the first loops that enclose the butterflies, but I am going to go back to it with your vids after this one. I did a first design using their Catona, that can also be a Stonewashed project. It was through you, though, that I saw this gorgeous yarn. I’m in the Ravelry group that is making this blanket. Adrienne101. Thank you so much.

  2. It is so beautiful Esther, hard to believe. Maybe going to write about it – but I wanted to tell you something great. A few years ago I got a new tv to try a tcl, it had this roku thing and anyway you can get youtube so Esther, imagine what it was like for me yesterday to watch part seven on it!!!!!!! Ha! But there you were with all your gorgeous tutorials. It is 32″ so not like computer at all, giant! Anyway just finished the triangle row. It is big enough now to get under! And it is one of the most gorgeous things I have ever seen. I am having that feeling “Look what I made” —- hugs. Thank you so much.

  3. Hi Esther. I loved your colourway so much I had to do it. I just noticed that round 69 you say to change to garnet, but in the video you use rose quartz again? Can I assume from the above photo that garnet is actually correct?
