Janie Crow Persian Tiles Crochet Blanket Pattern
In 2013 Janie designed a project for her crochet club using Persian and Moroccan textiles and architecture as her inspiration. The resulting blanket was exclusive to her crochet club members, so the pattern is no longer available. It is a theme she wanted to revisit though, as the colours and shapes work so well in crochet and she is constantly asked for a project that echoes the original design.
This blanket is simpler in construction than the original crochet club project and there are just four different motifs within the design; the main octagon piece, of which you need to make sixteen, is surrounded by variations on granny squares and triangles in shades of blue and cream. The project is relatively simple to make.
The original Persian Tiles pattern is written for Stylecraft Life DK and Special DK and lists yarn amounts for both of these in the original colour way. The pattern includes written instructions and charts.
