Inspired by botanical shapes and ceramic tiles, the Hestia blanket is made of tapestry crochet squares which combine to create a truly beautiful pattern. 

A sumptuous border frames the “tiles”, continuing some of the tapestry crochet elements of the squares into it. 

Did you know that Hestia was the Greek goddess of the hearth?  She looked after the home and family.  By making a Hestia Blanket, you can bring something wonderful into your home that you and your family will cherish for years to come.

As always, the pattern includes full written instructions, comprehensive pattern notes, photos and a chart for making the blanket.

It also includes links to these video tutorials about techniques used in the blanket:

There are two pdf files for the pattern. One is with UK crochet terms and the other is with US crochet terms.
