ColourLab DK Folk Tales CAL by Anna Nikipirowicz

A stunning crochet blanket beautifully designed by me for the wonderful West Yorkshire Spinners using ColourLab DK, our 100% British wool.

The Folk Tales name represents old traditions of crochet and other handcrafts, where past generations would sit and make together while telling each other old folk tales. We encourage you to continue the tradition of storytelling while crafting.

Maybe dedicate an hour a day or week to spend with your family, friends, or even by yourself to make each square, giving it its own story, with each technique providing a new twist in the tale. Both the blanket and the story can be passed down and cherished.

"I wanted this blanket to have a modern twist in the design to symbolise the here and now. The modern shapes and bright colours bring a modern edge to this traditional craft." - Anna Nikipirowicz

Use #WYSFolkTales to share your squares and stories.

We'll be releasing the five parts weekly as PDF downloads starting on Monday 12th April.

Each part is accompanied by an in-depth tutorial video available on our YouTube Folk Tales CAL playlist.
