Pattern 9528 - Life DK, Special DK

Crochet Boho Blanket and Cushion

The Boho blanket and cushion have been designed for us by Lucia's Fig tree. They are an excellent introduction to the intarsia crochet technique where a colour is carried inside the stitches being worked to allow multiple colours in a row. There are lots of you tube videos to show you how to do this.

Life DK

Life DK is a luxurious yet practical yarn, available in a wide choice of colours. We mix 25% wool with 75% premium acrylic and this makes the yarn is soft and supple, as well as being easy on the hands to work with. Life Chunky washes and wears extremely well and is perfect for a whole range of projects due to the versatile nature of the yarn.
