I am so excited to announce that the next floral block, The Hibiscus Tea Block (part two of our High Tea theme ) is released as an MMAL ( Mystery-Make-A-Long ).

As always, the pattern will include detailed Videos throughout

Part 1: Rnds 1 to 25 ( 10 May )
Part 2: Rnds 26 to 46 ( 24 May )

The MMAL will be hosted on the HooksnTales Pattern Workshop Group over in Facebook land by Noelene Sampey.


The Hibiscus Tea Block is the second block in the High Tea “ mix and match” series. As with High Tea, we’ll first make the block, then we’ll make the extension. Now you will have 2 x Blocks and 2 x Extensions to mix and match. Once we have completed all four blocks and all four extensions you will have the option to create 16 x mix and match Throws!

Once each Block and Extension is completed I will be offering the complete Throw pattern here on Ravelry, especially for those of you who don’t want to do the mix and match thing.

For this Block, I will be using Stylecraft Special DK throughout. The yarn amounts here are for the Block only. I will note additional yarn amounts once the Extension is complete.

1 x Boysenberry 1828 or Pomegranate 1083 or Raspberry 1023
1 x Apricot 1026
2 x Graphite 1063
