Starry Starry Night Crochet Star Blanket - It Started With a Stitch

If I had to name this yarn, I’d call it Starry Starry Night

There’s millions of types of yarn out there and sometimes I feel like I’ve browsed them all. Hoping that I can justify each and every one and thinking that they’ll definitely not take up too much room. Recently I was buying some more sparkly yarn, because you can never have too much of that and that’s when it happened. I tripped over this yarn that if it was up to me, I’d name  Starry Starry Night.

It  makes me think that if you unravelled Van Gogh’s famous painting, and balled it up into a yarn cake that this is what it would look like.

During lock down I’m selling myself to you all, for free. I’m sharing all the hints, tips and lessons that you’d usually have to pay for. Over in The Craft Hub on Facebook you’ll find a collection of video tutorials teaching you a whole host of things. Coming up on Friday 22nd is potentially my most favourite tutorial to date. The Star Blanket tutorial. As soon as I saw the yarn that looked like the impressionist masterpiece, I knew that I had to use it for this very lesson.

The Star Blanket pattern is a total beaut, made as I have with a chunky yarn and equally chunky hook, it makes a snuggly and funky blanket or throw. Size it up more with super thick t-shirt yarn and a hook the size of a child’s arm and you can quickly turn it into a playroom rug that dreams are made of.
