Leadlight Crochet Afghan/Blanket

You know that moment, that very special moment when you have worked really hard at something so it is unique, one of a kind? You press the publish button on the pattern and fingers crossed, people will like it and want to make it.

Today has been a button pressing and publishing day for me! My Leadlight Afghan decided to become an idea in my head in 2016. And today it has finally found its way to being published.

The pattern can be found on Ravelry, Etsy and Love Crochet. (click on place name)

It took my testers around four months to work their way through the 96 pages of pattern. They did a fantastic job. So Thank you to Carrie Skach, Kathy Mant, Bethany Colhoff and Corlia Van Zyl. This was a LOT of work to test!

The Leadlight is made from Stylecraft Batik Dk (available here) in the following quantities:

5mm hook 
5 Stylecraft Batik Teal 138m/151yrd= C1 
3 Stylecraft Special dk Black = C2 
5 Stylecraft Batik Storm 138m/151yrd = C3 
5 Stylecraft Batik Biscuit 138m/151yrd = C4 
3 Stylecraft Batik Sage 138m/151yrd = C5 
4 Stylecraft Batik Indigo 138m/151yrd = C6 
5 Stylecraft Batik Lupin 138m/151yrd = C7

Carries yarn amounts differs slightly to mine.  This could be due to yarn tension. and different distribution of colours.

I would classify this project as intermediate level. The stitches are basic, but a good understanding of colourwork would be an advantage. The challenge with this Afghan is working from multiple bobbins (available here) (96 in the final colour round) at once and in the round.

This is a written pattern and comes in USA Terms and UK Terms. It has many photographs to show stitch counts etc.
I have separated this pattern into Eight Parts to make it user friendly. Enjoy!
