The Bohemian Blooms crochet blanket pattern book is now available. The book includes the patterns for all the motifs used in Jane's stunning blanket, with step by step images and clear written instructions and piecing diagrams to help you along the way. The book is 96 pages and includes the story behind Jane's inspiration for the project, many tips and techniques and links to helpful Youtube videos and technical downloads.
The pattern is written for yarns from the Rowan range. You can find the kit by following this link - the kit includes the pattern book and beads free of charge.
If you want to use alternative yarns there is information on how to calculate amounts in order to swap at the front of the book, but please note that we will not be releasing kits in an alternative yarn or colourway and are unable to help with advice on alternative yarn choices.
If you want to source the beads used in this project you will find them by following this link. The beads used are Pewter (DA56) and White (DA 334). Beads are £3.75 a pack and you will need a pack of each.
There is also a dedicated Facebook group for the Bohemian Blooms project. The group is not run my us, but is looked after by the fabulous Karen Citrine, who also hosts the Persian Tiles group

Details about the kit are below:
Kit includes 31 balls of Rowan Yarn, beads, sew in label and full colour pattern brochure.
The book, which comes free as part of the pack, contains step-by-step images to guide you along the way as you work through Jane's signature style written patterns. Also free within this pack are the beads and a sew in label.
Downloadable technique sheets and our own new Youtube videos will be available soon to offer on line guidance through the techniques used in this project, such as beading, bobbles, colour work and 3D crochet.
This project is aimed at those with a good knowledge of crochet stitches and abbreviations and is written using UK terminology.
Please note that this project is not worked along the lines of a traditional Crochet Along (CAL) project. Patterns are only available within the brochure, which is available as part of the kit and we will not be sending download patterns or email updates. This is a CAL style project in that the pattern brochure is laid out in a way that means you can follow it through at your own speed and in your own chosen order should you wish. The brochure pattern will be available separately to the yarn kit at the end of April 2018.
We have based yarn amounts on the check of 2 crocheters following our suggested tension. We have allowed extra yarn within the kit to be sure that there is plenty!
Important Information: Given the luxury fibre content of the yarn used in this project and the way that Jane has chosen to mix 4 different yarns together to create her desired 'painterly' effects, we recommend that you take extra care when blocking and washing. We advise on dry cleaning or damp blocking and suggest that you take extra care in areas where the cream and dark yarns (in particular the Rouge shade) come into contact. We will not accept responsibility for colour run.
The yarn pack and book will be dispatched in two separate parcels.
