It is finally time to tell the Tibet Tiles crochet pattern is out now ! You can’t imagine how much joy it brings me to finally announce this pattern as I was thrilled to publish it these last days. This pattern had a long and hard road to get it here, which you can also read in the introducing blogpost of this pattern, so I’m really happy to finally do it. All reactions on the first photos of this pattern we’re full of credits and so it made me really confident to finish it.
I’m not gonna explain too much anymore of the background stories to this pattern as the pattern itself holds all the stories and you can read them on the blog, but also to prevent that this post will become such a long one to read. So I’m just gonna show off what this pattern looks when it is finished and some practical information involving the pattern. First of all, let me show you a photo of a full finished version so you can see what it will become in the end :
The blanket is made out of small and large tiles worked in different settings and colors. Combined they form this spectacular combination of colors and motifs. The four different colored corners shows off the four elements of the Tibetan belief. It also represents the colors of the Tibetan prayer flags…and more background details you can read in the introducing blog post of it. But these are the highlights when you see the entire blanket.
As this patterns is designed by me, it is not only I who deserve some credits for it. So before i write down all general stuff about the pattern i want to thank each and every one who made this pattern possible. First of all there is Scheepjes Yarns, they sponsored the yarn for this pattern as it is made out of Scheepjes Catona which is a lovely mercerized cotton. Secondly, there is my mom to thank. She did an amazing job testing this pattern…but also crocheting some tiles along with me when i couldn’t touch a crochet hook for a while. So she is as much the maker of this blanket as i am. And of course there are the other testers, my general bunch of crochet friends who help me wherever i need them : Tayu Purnasami, Riikka Panu, Julia Veloso, Christina Berberich and Anna Nita. Without them it wouldn’t be possible to do this.
And now some general information regarding the pattern. As it might be useful to know some things before you buy it.
Materials needed :
– A crochet hook size 3,0 mm

Yarn needed :
For this pattern I used Scheepjes Catona which is a mercerized cotton which comes in balls of 10, 25 and 50 grams with a length of 125 meters per 50 grams ball. As the pattern holds a lot of colors this yarntype is perfect as it comes in different weights so you can save some money on this. However, you could choose any yarntype for this pattern as long as you adjust the hooksize to the yarn, but the yarn amounts that are listed only apply for mercerised cotton.

The pattern holds a lot of notes which only make it easier to crochet the pattern. The crochet pattern comes in written instructions guided with step by step photos and there are charts for the tiles in the pattern.
The original pattern is available in English and a German, Spanish and Dutch version is also already available. More language translations will follow in the next months.
The Border is optional although the yarn amounts are included in the list of Scheepjes Catona you need. But in the pattern you also find the individual amounts of yarn needed for the border.
Of course the most important thing to write down is where you can get the pattern. You can buy it in my Ravelry store or my Etsy shop. Once you bought it you have access to all available languages at that moment. Important to say is that this pattern is a little more expensive than other patterns from my hand as it is bigger and with more options than ever before. A lot of time an effort is put in it so i hope you respect my choice.
Feel free to sell made items out of this pattern. I would love if you tag or make a reference to me as a designer when showing your wip’s or finished projects. Please use the #tibettiles on social media to share this pattern all in one simple search.
Last but not least, thank you so much for making this pattern. A lot of effort, time and creativity are in this little piece of art and every single thing that comes out of it makes it all the work so worth it.
