A Deramores Exclusive - Helen Shrimpton’s latest blanket design is one to get hooking to this spring!
We’re very excited to launch the beautiful Rose of Avalon Blanket designed by the talented Helen Shrimpton and mastermind behind the current Mandala Madness CAL. Helen has created this gorgeous mythical inspired blanket with our very own award winning Deramores Studio DK! Inspired by the myth and legend of King Arthur, the Rose of Avalon blanket is influenced by the island of Avalon; a mystical island in the middle of a lake which is said to be the final resting place of the legendary British leader. Each of the squares in this design are named after the ladies of King Arthur’s court which adds to the beauty of this blanket. This stunning pattern is available only at Deramores along with a colour pack including each and every shade needed to complete this magical pattern.
Helen has always been fascinated by the myth and legend of King Arthur and Isle of Avalon, which inspired her to create this gorgeous crochet. We absolutely love the floral design within each granny square and the selection of shades used to complete the blanket. The blue hues Topaz and Mist create an excellent representation of the lake that surround the Isle of Avalon and the deep Wine shade really brings the blanket to life. The added burst of bright colours including Rose and Peridot create an enchanted feel to the blanket taking us to a land far away. We can picture this blanket in a range of different places around the home, from the conservatory to kids playroom and it would certainly work brilliantly to wrap yourself in on a cool summer evening. The gorgeous pattern is available to purchase exclusively from Deramores here.
Studio DK is one of our award winning yarns and is an excellent choice for blankets; it’s anti pilling technology ensures your crochet will look perfect wash after wash and creates a gorgeous heirloom to pass on to generations to come. The selection of colours within the Rose of Avalon colour pack will add an array of succulent shades to your stash and create a stunning crochet to add to your collection. 14 balls of yarn are included in the Rose of Avalon colour pack, which is enough to create the 53 inch square blanket in a variety of shades that reflect the medieval myth perfectly. Whether you’re looking for a project to occupy you over spring or a new accessory for the home or garden then this is the project for you!
