Charlotte’s Universe Video Tutorial Part 12

Just like last week, when we repeated part 4, this week we are repeating part 5 of Charlotte’s Universe Blanket CAL and placing many many stitch markers as we go. For my Strawberry Ice Cream version of Charlotte’s Universe, just like last week, I am using the same color placement as before, so I am repeating the colors I used in part 5. In this post you can find the video tutorial for part 12, my color placement, info on where I get all those stitch markers, as well as information about the kits I have available in my shop.

Video Tutorial Part 12

You can find the RIGHT HANDED and LEFT HANDED video tutorials for Charlotte’s Universe on my YouTube channel. This is a repetition of part 5, so I have used those recordings again, and added information after the round on where to place the stitch markers. 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!

Here is my color placement for Charlotte’s Universe Part 12. I did my best to get my Charlotte in front of the camera, not an easy task at this point!

RoundColor
103A – 821 Pink Quartzite
104A – 821 Pink Quartzite
105A – 821 Pink Quartzite
106B – 820 Rose Quartz
107E – 811 Deep Amethyst
108A – 821 Pink Quartzite
109A – 821 Pink Quartzite
110A – 821 Pink Quartzite
111F – 836 Tourmaline

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.

Stitch Markers

I am using just about all the stitch markers I have in my house, I even had to temporarily borrow a few from my shop. From top to bottom, Tulip Heart stitch markers that come with a very handy carrying tin, 3 hand made stitch markers from Koru Clay Studio, and 3 Lilac Angel stitch markers made by me and available in my shop.

Sometimes I think to myself I have too many stitch markers, and then a project like Charlotte comes along, and it seems I actually need more!


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
