Welcome to the Karoo Vintage Mystery - A - Long!
The aim is to work this project in parts, each inspired by my favourite quaint and interesting villages in The Karoo. I will be using an array of stitches to create a richly-textured blanket, worked in the round, that will eventually measure approximately 1.6m x 1.60m ( 65” x 65” ). I am using Scheepjes Colour Crafter which is 100% DK quality acrylic, a 4mm hook and US stitch terms throughout. You can also use a 4.50m to 5mm hook, which will increase the size of your blanket!

This project is a SloCro ( Slow Crochet ) so the idea is to do it in your own time. I will be releasing each part every 2-weeks and you can follow along, or wait until the end to begin.

No pressure, just pure take-it-easy and enjoy!

COMPLETED BLANKET INFORMATION

Yarn:Scheepjes Colour Crafter 100% Acrylic DK 100g (300m )
Weight: 1.7kg = 3.75pnds
Measures: 1.55m x 1.55m = 62” x 62” ( after blocking )
I used a 4mm hook, expect a bigger or smaller end result depending on hook size.
Blanket weight = approximately 17 x 100 balls DK yarn.
( = 5,100m / 5,577yrds )

HOWEVER: For some colours I used 50% or less of a 100g ball.

This is one of the reasons I suggested this project as a “Stash Buster”.

If you are following my colourway, you’ll have no option but to buy the 100g ball of the lesser used colours.

Total = 22 x 100g balls
