Almost finished, where did the time go? This week we make the second last part of Charlotte’s Universe Blanket CAL and in this part we are making flowers in the corners of the blanket. As you go along, you will be very happy with all those stitch markers you place last week. In this post you can find the video tutorials for part 13, as well as the color placement for my Strawberry Ice Cream version of Charlotte’s Universe.

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.
Dedri has created a Facebook Group especially for Charlotte’s Universe. This is a good place to post your questions and show your work.
