It is time for Part 4 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 fourth part of this project holds a very lacy crochet border around Part 3, which is built up out of some Rounds from the Soul of the Sea blanket pattern. If you use the color schedule I created, you will start by working with the blue color set in combination with the base colors – which is the last color set to add to the project. After this Part, all colors will be in the blanket. Many of you already know the Soul of the Sea patterns, but for those who didn’t, here is a short introduction:
The Soul of the Sea blanket is created as an extension of the Soul of the Sea Shawl. I designed the shawl as one of my first patterns, and it was such a hit many of you asked for a blanket version of this pattern. I started working on it, and I realized that although the pattern held the same type of stitches and texture, for a square-shaped version, I had to modify the whole pattern once again. Not knowing it would come in handy later on this project. I chose the lacy part of small waves as an addition to the Walk down memory lane project, and it definitely gives the pattern a more relaxed drape.
But, to return to the third part of the Walk down memory lane project. The fourth part of it is made with the Soul of the Sea blanket pattern. 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 fourth 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 fourth 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 Soul of the Sea blanket pattern is used – which will be offered from $3.50 to $1.00, so you will save at least 60%! 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 4 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!
