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.

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
112F – 836 Tourmaline
113F – 836 Tourmaline
114G – 819 New Jade
115A – 821 Pink Quartzite
116E – 811 Deep Amethyst
117A – 821 Pink Quartzite
118A – 821 Pink Quartzite
119C – 810 Garnet
120A – 821 Pink Quartzite
121A – 821 Pink Quartzite

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
