Here is a lovely design by Edie Eckman. This style of random stitch patterns with random colors and sizes of squares is so popular. What a fun project to do this winter!
This was designed with a yarn called Naturally Caron Country, which has been discontinued. It was a merino/acrylic blend available in 3-ounce skeins of 185 yards each. Based on the yardage, it’s been listed as aran weight, but it must have been the way it was spun because it works up more like a DK weight for me.

Usually, I would try to recommend a product from the same company, but it looks like Simply Soft Light has been discontinued. In this case, I would recommend Stylecraft Special DK which I’ve purchased from LoveCrochet several times. There are lots and lots of colors and the price is incredibly reasonable. Feel free to substitute yarn with whatever you have available since this is a blanket and it will simply be bigger, if larger yarn is used.

I’ll be giving away the actual book shown in the photograph (not a download). This is one of my favorite books. It was published in 1991. It has incredibly lovely Victorian designs and there is a lot of thread work. It is a rare jewel and one lucky winner will get it!
One name will be chosen randomly from all names entered prior to close at 12:00am (CST) on October 17, 2017. The winner will be required to provide me with a mailing address. Leaving your email address is mandatory to enter. Choose any of the other options for additional entries. Good luck, everyone!
The entry form will load immediately below these words. Wait for it to load. If it doesn’t load, you may need to break out your laptop because some devices (I’m looking at you, iPad) strip the code sometimes.
Enjoy and good luck in the drawing!
