Crochet designer Sue Pinner has been the lucky one to design the latest Stylecraft CAL. Inspired by the fairground, carousels and the circus she designed a colourful and unique blanket! As from the 13th of September, 6 patterns will be released over 3 months allowing you to join in the greatest CAL of Stylecraft this year. By combining different geometrical shapes with bright colours, you'll create a bold and festive blanket in only 3 months!
But how does the design of such a colourful blanket come about? Sue Pinner played with different ideas and started out with creating shapes with paper and cardboard. Then she crocheted different trial versions until she yielded the perfect blanket. Resulting in a unique, colourful and festive design with the well-known red and white circus colours.
