Charlotte Part 3 – Video Tutorial

Today the third part in the short three-part video tutorial for Charlotte, designed by Dedri Uys. I have showed you part 1 in which we made the central square, and part 2 in which we grew the square by adding triangles. Now time to grow the square even more by adding a butterfly border.

In this third part of Charlotte I show you how to make the butterfly border. First we make a base round using the same color yarn as the triangles, and on this we then make the butterfly border.


Colorway

The colors that I am using are from the Scheepjes Secret Garden range, more specifically Herb Garden, Wisteria Arch, Bird Bath and Wishing Well, all available from Wool Warehouse, Deramores or your Scheepjes stockist. I am using Secret Garden with a 4mm hook.

Charlotte part 2 – Video Tutorial

Today the second part in a short three-part series in which I will be releasing video tutorials for Charlotte, designed by Dedri Uys. Last week I showed you part 1 in which we made the central square, this week for part 2 we are making the square larger by adding triangles to it.

In this second part of Charlotte I show you how to make the triangles around the center square. You need to make 4 of these triangles, one on each edge of the square.  The result is again a square, but much larger.


Colorway

The colors that I am using are Herb Garden, Wisteria Arch, Bird Bath and Wishing Well, all available from Wool Warehouse, Deramores or your Scheepjes stockist, with a 4mm hook. This week the colorway is very easy, for each row of part 2, that is row 19 to 28, I used Herb Garden (702). The green variegated color of the triangles really make the design pop as you can see in this photo of Charlotte in the snow.

We again had snow over the weekend. I have completely had it with winter and am seriously longing for spring. I treated myself to a small bunch of tulips, nothing says spring to me like tulips, even if it is only inside my house. Now if we could just convince the weather outside that it’s time to change….

I have now shown you the first two parts of Charlotte. Next week, the third and final part.

With love,

Esther

In this first part of Charlotte I show you how to make the center square with its fabulous flower. The flower is thick and slightly raised above the square which gives it a very luxurious look and feel.

Announcement: Charlotte Video Tutorials

There are few patterns that take my breath away, but Charlotte by Dedri Uys is one of them. It makes me super proud to announce to you that I will be making video tutorials for Charlotte. I’m already working hard on them!

The yarn that I am using for my Charlotte is Scheepjes Secret Garden. This is a luxury yarn containing silk, cotton and polyester. Until recently this yarn was only available as a variegated yarn, but now it is also available in solid shades. I will be combining solid and variegated shades in my Charlotte.
