Dream Blanket 5.0

 

It’s a new year and with it comes some very good news: The new Dream Blanket is here! And the good news isn’t just for all crocheters, but for all knitters too. That’s right! Once again, this year, you can enjoy either knitting or crocheting the blanket.

This year’s design is extra special because it is our anniversary edition, our 5th Dream Blanket! To celebrate this milestone, we’ve worked with our amigurumi specialist, Annemarie Arts, to put together a Dream Collection to accompany the Dream Blanket 5.0. The Dream Collection includes the sweetest nursery décor and accessories in the shape of star and cloud cushions and music boxes. The true star of the collection is an adorable dress-up bear with various outfits for all occasions! The Dream Collection is available as both complete crochet kits from € 14,95 and as digital patterns for just € 2,95 each.

What does the Dream Blanket 5.0 look like?

This year, the Dream Blanket 5.0 features the dreamiest stitches all in one color! This way, the stitches really have the chance to shine. And it’s not just the stitches that make this blanket unique, but also the choice of yarn. For the first time, the Dream Blanket 5.0 is crocheted or knitted with Yarn and Colors Joy. This high-quality yarn ensures that you can enjoy using your blanket for many years to come. The new Dream Blanket 5.0 kits are available in 12 gorgeous colors. In addition to the required yarn, you also receive a Dream bag, a leather Dream label and access to the Dream Blanket 5.0 Crochet Along or Knit Along (which one depends on whether you purchased a crochet or knitting kit).

Frequently asked questions about the Dream Blanket 5.0


  • How big is the Dream Blanket 5.0?

    The crocheted blanket is approximately 120 x 190 cm big. The size may vary depending on your personal crochet tension.

    The size of the knitted Dream Blanket 5.0 is approximately 120 x 150 cm. This, of course, depends on how tightly you knit.

  • How can I make the crocheted Dream Blanket 5.0 bigger?

    If you want to make the crocheted blanket wider, begin with a foundation chain that is a multiple of 36 + 9 stitches + 1 turning chain. This stitch count is based on the number of stitches required for the 3rd filet crochet pattern (the middle panel). Note: If you make your blanket wider or narrower, this will work for the middle filet crochet panel, but the other stitch sections and filet crochet panels will need to be adjusted and may not always work out.

  • My blanket is wavy or bunching up. What can I do to get it to lay flat?

    Is your work wavy or does it ripple? Then try using a half or whole size smaller hook or needle. Is your work too tight or does it bunch up? Then try using a half or whole size bigger hook or needle. Small irregularities in tension can easily be resolved by blocking your work well at the end. For the best results, use the handy blocking accessories from the Yarnplaza assortment, such as blocking mats, knit blockers and a water spray bottle.

  • Why is the blanket crocheted/knitted with Yarn and Colors Joy?

    We recommend using Yarn and Colors Joy because it’s the perfect yarn for making blankets. Each ball of Joy weighs a generous 100 grams and is available in a stunning color palette. This yarn is super soft, works up beautifully and holds up really well over a long time (even after many washes). To top it off, Joy has an excellent price to quality ratio.

  • How many balls do I need for the Dream Blanket 5.0?

    For the crocheted Dream Blanket 5.0, you need 14 balls of Yarn and Colors Joy.

    For the knitted Dream Blanket 5.0, you need 11 balls of Yarn and Colors Joy.

  • Can I use a different yarn to make the Dream Blanket 5.0?

    You can certainly use a different yarn to make the blanket. You do need to make sure that the thickness (‘yarn weight’) and yardage are a good match to the original. The thickness of the yarn will affect how many meters of yarn you need and, ultimately, the size of your blanket.

    For this crochet blanket, you need approximately 3500 meters of yarn. For the knitted version, you need approximately 2750 meters. The easiest way to substitute yarn is to go for one that has a similar thickness to the original. In this particular case, you’re looking for a yarn with a stitch gauge of 22 stitches x 30 rows. Then work out how many balls you need based on the given yardage per ball of your chosen yarn.

    Good alternatives for Yarn and Colors Joy are, for example, the 100% acrylic Stylecraft Special DK, a cotton-acrylic mix like Yarn and Colors Baby Fabulous or Yarn and Colors Charming, or the 100% wool Yarn and Colors Serene. By making a gauge swatch, you can determine what size crochet hook or knitting needles you need to meet the required gauge. Whenever you change stitch pattern, it’s important to check that your blanket stays nice and flat. Adjust your hook or needles if it gets too wavy or bunches up.
