My Nameless ………

 

My Nameless…

Normally when I am designing a new pattern, a name comes to me quite strongly, along with the reason for the name, there will always be a significant reason or meaning with the name.

This time, although there were feelings and ideas, nothing stood out, and the testers and I were calling it “Nameless”.
I then thought what a great idea to get all the members of Helen’s Hookaholics (Facebook group) to come up with the name.

WELL!!! What an amazingly creative bunch they are, some of the names were very personal, some were very insightful, spiritual, historical, natural, etc.

I finally felt that everyone needs to be a part of naming their own creation, and so the final name given is “My Nameless ……….” you fill in the blank!

And so, the nameless becomes named by you, personalised to you or whoever you are making this gorgeous blanket for.

Essentially, we have a Mandala/circle, with a lovely new stitch I designed called Puff Daisies.
The design then flows out like ripples in time, with petals, pyramids and points.

Each of you will see what is right for you to see, each of you will find your thoughts connecting with that which you need to mull over, each of you will feel the emotions which are most healing to you at this time.

To help with the slightly tricky part of working around the Puff Daisies, I have made a little video tutorial to help you Puff Daisies video tutorial

And there is also a video tutorial for how I make tassels Making tassels video tutorial

You may, of course, follow any of the colour ways my testers and I have used, or be creative and allow your heart to guide you to the perfect colours for your own “My Nameless…….”

You will need a maximum of  5000 meters / 5500 yards of Double Knitting yarn and a 4mm hook, or Worsted/Aran weight and a 5 to 5.5mm hook, this allows for colour changes, using just one colour you will need less.

Finished size – 168 cm/ 66 inches square

Stylecraft yarns are available to buy online at Woolwarehouse and Deramores.
