Hearthside Blanket Free Pattern

Find Hearthside free blanket pattern – a bohemian dream! – on Ravelry, Craftsy, and LoveKnitting.com (soon!) 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.

Hearthside Blanket: A Bohemian Beauty

Kaelyn of iiirdwind (on Etsy, Instagram, Facebook) has graciously finished her eye-catching sample blanket to test my free Hearthside pattern, and what a beauty! She has also provided all of the breathtaking photos for this post. Thank you, Kaelyn!  When Scheepjes added solid colors to their Secret Garden line, I positively had to have all of them. And what’re a bunch of solid colors missing? A bunch of variegated colors of course. More is more and less is a bore, right?!? (Shop Secret Garden: LoveKnitting (US), WoolWarehouse (UK), KnottyHouse (CA) ❤️)* You can read about my love for Secret Garden yourself, but I will say it’s like working with a special handspun yarn. Every stitch is a joy, and I cannot wait to release this free pattern to you lovely lot. It’s nearly done! For now, enjoy these gorgeous photos of Kaelyn’s Hearthside blanket.  Pre-edging My absolute favorite photo of Hearthside, ever: And lounging on the backyard fence: Here she is with the red and purple bobble edge. Totally honored to have the bohemian beauty …

Hearthside Blanket: The WIP that I never want to end.

Seriously. I’ve had some convos recently about how quick I am to frog something that’s just not doing it for me, so y’all know I cannot stand having WIPs laying around… But this yarn is so fun to work with, I had to jump into a project knowing full well I’d have to promptly cast it aside.  At least the play time was fun!! Read my full review of Scheepjes Secret Garden, and see for yourself how beautiful it is. I describe it as a sort of thick and thin tweed.. and it has all these marly bits. Every stitch is a surprise 🙂  Maybe the most fun part of this WIP (and  also the saddest… but really the funnest!) is the fact that I sent all the yarn off to a lovely member of my NEW CypressTextiles Tester Tribe! I’ll have the page introducing everyone up and running soon.  Now Robyn Axelrod is testing the pattern, and for that I am so thankful. Her work is really beautiful and I know she has a …
