Enjoy all the fun of the fair with Stylecraft’s Carousel CAL!

Get ready for a gorgeous new CAL from Stylecraft – Susan Pinner’s carousel blanket is a fabulous way to improve your crochet skills!

Inspired by fairgrounds, carousels and the circus, Susan Pinner’s new blanket is a geometric feast made from octagons, pentagons and elongated hexagons. Many of you will know Susan from her fabulous books about granny square techniques, Granny Squares, and Granny Squares & Shapes, and this CAL is a wonderful way to improve your crochet skills by creating shapes that are a few steps away from traditional squares. You can read all about Susan’s crochet inspiration and look at her free patterns and tutorials on her blog here!

The CAL begins on 13th September, and will be published in six instalments over three months. All the patterns will be FREE to download from www.stylecraft-­yarns.co.uk once the CAL begins, with a Facebook group where you can share your progress.

Buy your colour pack!

The Stylecraft DK colour pack for Carousel contains 17 balls of yarn and qualifies for FREE delivery!

    Do you think a beginner will be able to do this pattern? Will there be videos to watch?
    I love all the colors!

  2. Debbie says:

    Is the full pattern included with the yarn pack or do you still have to download it in instalments

  3. Nicky says:

    Which size will the blanket be?

      Hello Nicky,

      I’m afraid we don’t have any further information on the Carousel CAL, Stylecraft will release more information on the pattern once it begins. I’d suggest contacting them directly to find out the finished dimensions of the blanket 🙂

      Hi Debbie,

      Stylecraft have advised in the introduction to the CAL that this project is aimed at people looking to improve their skills rather than complete beginners. Why not have a look at some of our free crochet patterns and get hooking ahead of the CAL? It will build your confidence!

    There is an option to make this in Stylecraft Batik DK but I cannot see a colour pack for that option – only the Special DK. Will you be adding one of do I need to buy the yarns individually?

    • sian says:

      Hello Christine,

      Unfortunately we will not be selling the Stylecraft Batik in a colourpack for this CAL, I’m sorry about that 🙁
