Hearthside is a cozy, colorful piece that will put a smile on your face every time you snuggle underneath. No hearth required, but it will definitely enhance the coze factor. Made in Scheepjes Secret Garden, this blanket is as delightful to make as it is to wrap up in. Have fun using all of the solid colors and three coordinating multis for two classic squares, a lovely texture granny square, and a beautiful bobble square. Finish it all off with a framing border that you’ll want to use for many projects to come. Check out the WIP and FO posts for Hearthside to see more glorious photos.

Enjoy this beauty! I made a couple of squares for it, and fellow tester tribe member Robyn of 4ply Designs made a few, and then lovely tester Kaelyn made the majority of the piece and finished it off with that cozy bobble frame border. What a special make this was to be shared amongst us crafters. Love it!
The border is just the perfect frame. I’m so proud of how this piece turned out.
It’s a bit of an odd feeling when I have a vision for a pattern, and I choose a yarn brand, and palette. Then I make a couple of “rough draft” motifs, send everything off, draft the pattern, and then walk through everything working closely with the tester. I never actually make the blanket before it gets tested, but when it is finished, I know it’s just exactly as I imagined it. The odd feeling is that I get a numbing sensation in my hands when I look at the FO, because it comes from my vision. I get a sensation that I made it, but I know I didn’t… and that disconnect is really quite weird!
