The Royal Garden Blanket is designed by Jane Crowfoot, also known by her designer name Janie Crow. Two brand-new kits have been created with Scheepjes Colour Crafter (100% premium acrylic) or Scheepjes Stone Washed & River Washed yarns (78% cotton, 22% acrylic), so that you can crochet your very own Royal Garden Blanket measuring ± 162x162cm.
“This pattern was inspired by my trips to the Green Hotel, Mysore, India. There are lots of places within the hotel and its surrounding grounds to sit and relax, but one of my favourite places is the coffee shop…” – Jane Crowfoot
Inspired by the intricate and vibrant terracotta tiles decorating the floor combined with the patchwork layout of the main garden of the Green hotel, the Royal Garden Blanket is an ode to this marvellous place in Mysore. To transform her fond memories into a tangible project, Jane incorporated the tiles’ motif and the blooming flowerbeds of the garden into this geometric design, resulting in a striking blanket that will be a centrepiece in any living space.
By selecting colours from our extensive range of Colour Crafter and Stone Washed & River Washed yarns, Jane and Scheepjes have worked in collaboration to create two incredible kits exclusive to Scheepjes. Each kit contains the 16-page pattern booklet in English and Dutch as well as all the required yarns to crochet the complete design.
