Today Part 9 of Charlotte’s Universe Blanket CAL is released, and in this part we finish the border section we started two weeks ago. My Strawberry Ice Cream version of Charlotte’s Universe that I am making using Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn is really popping with all the colors. I have kits available in my shop if you would like to make my version of the blanket.

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

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!
Here is my color placement for Charlotte’s Universe Part 9. I really like how the deep red divides the different sections of the blanket.
|84||E – 811 Deep Amethyst|
|85||B – 820 Rose Quartz|
|86||D – 818 Lilac Quartz|
|87||A – 821 Pink Quartzite|
|88||C – 810 Garnet|
|89||C – 810 Garnet|
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.
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!
