It is time for Part 2 of the Walk down memory lane project – a blanket that is built up out of different existing patterns designed by my hand over the years. This project is a crown on all the work I have done so far these past five years. If you totally missed this project and still want to catch up with all the details and information you need before you start – you can find that information in the introduction file, which you will find here. If you want to look into all parts published – look here.
The second part of this project holds a textured, overlay crochet border around the center part out of part 1, which is built up out of some Rounds from the Alegria pattern. If you use the color schedule I created, you will start by working with the purple color set in combination with the base colors. Many of you already know the Alegria cushion pattern, but for those who didn’t, here is a short introduction:
I created Alegria, actually, without a specific reason. Taking two colors of yarn and starting crocheting to get out of my head during that time was what resulted in this pattern. In the end, I was so happy with what I created that it gave me such a happy and uplifting feeling – or better said: Alegria! I have always loved to work in textured stitches and the feeling of sliding my fingertips over front post stitches. This part will definitely add that feeling to the Walk down memory lane blanket.
But, to get back to the second part of the Walk down memory lane project. The second part of it is made with the last Rounds of Alegria. Whether you decide to stick with my color choices or use Tineke’s masterpiece colorway – which only holds three colors, or go crazy with your own range of picked colors, stick to the instructions given in the file for the second part of the Walk down memory lane. It will not only give you directions in the used colors but also, in some parts, how to use the pattern and even an extra Round to crochet which isn’t in the pattern.
So, I won’t keep you waiting for this second part; I only have to mention one last thing. To make the Walk down memory lane project, you do need several patterns I have created and are ready for purchase. If you had to purchase all of them, I can imagine it would become a very expensive thing to create. So, during the entire period of this project, I will weekly announce the following pattern to use and offer it with a huge discount up till two weeks after the last part is published. In this way, if you don’t have all the patterns used – it will not become an unreachable goal. For this pattern, the Alegria pattern is used – which will be offered from $4.00 to $1.00, so you will save at least 75%! Take note that the discount is already taken off the price, and it still can variate due to different tax rates in different countries. If you need to purchase the pattern – all available languages will be there to download after a successful purchase. No need to purchase individual languages and see the information on the pattern’s page on which languages are available.
And here is the PDF file to download for the Walk down memory lane Part 2 in English (US) and Dutch. Once again, please download the introduction file before you start with any parts; everything can be found here. My advice is to keep the Walk down memory lane instructions besides the actual pattern used to keep things clear and organized for yourself.
See you next week!
