The Yarnicorn Project is part blanket pattern, part remembrance album. This 12 page PDF download contains a pattern for a knitted blanket, information about our Yarnicorn yarns, the dyers and the charities we contributed to throughout 2022. From February 7 to April 1, proceeds from the purchases of this pattern will be donated to the Alzheimer's Society of Canada AND your name will be entered into a draw for a special prize.
Barb and Cynthia wanted to come up with a year long project for the 2022 Yarnicorn launch. The idea was to combine different colours, gauges and fibres into a project that would look cohesive.
“The thought of creating a memory blanket was inspired by the crocheted lap blankets our Grandma made for us. It was a tremendous gift of her time and her love and it enabled her to use up all the yarns in her basket. We also loved the look of the mitred squares on the brim of Lucy Neatby’s design for our shop, the MVP hat. And so... an idea was born."
We created a pattern for a blanket (or you could make individual squares) using mitred squares. Join as you go to create a seamless project or sew your squares together later to create pleasing tiles of patterning. The choice is yours.
Purchase this pattern and your name will be entered into a draw for one of Barb's or Cynthia's mitred projects AND all the proceeds of this pattern sale will be donated to the Alzheimer's Society Canada: https://alzheimer.ca/en.
