Moroccan Lattice with Scheepjes Pack

I’m in love with this take on Moroccan Lattice Afghan stitched by Sarah Fabbri. She used the entire 50 mini-skeins of Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn, now available in Hobby Lobby (hello, 40% off coupon) as well as all online Scheepjes retailers such as Wool Warehouse. She bordered the motifs with three skeins of Stone Washed in Yellow Jasper, and used a 3.5 mm hook with the Stone Washed. (In the original pattern I used Stone Washed XL and a larger hook.) Her finished blanket is 28″ x 40″, but some people are buying two packs to enlarge. I really want to make this! Pattern in my Rav Store (20% off with Coupon Code JULIE20) and my Etsy shop.

Next CAL – Moroccan Lattice Afghan – March – May 2017

Our next CAL will be a new design called Moroccan Lattice Afghan, a repetitive design suitable for intermediate crocheters or adventurous beginners.  Moroccan Lattice will be a paid pattern on Ravelry.  Size in Stonewashed XL is about 44″ x 60″.

To achieve this look, you will need:

Scheepjes Stone Washed XL, (Aran weight; 70% cotton, 30% acrylic; 82 yds / 75 m per 50g skein) :   Moonstone 841 – 8 skeins,  Blue Agate 845 – 4 skeins,  Boulder Opal 844 – 4 skeins,  Yellow Jasper 849 – 3 skeins,  Garnet 850 – 3 skeins,  Coral 856 – 3 skeins, and  Brown Agate 862 – 3 skeins

You can get Scheepjes Stone Washed XL at Deramores (free shipping with $50.00 purchase, and a 15% off coupon if you sign up for emails on the website),

Wool Warehouse,  and  Paradise Fibers.   I have ordered from all 3 and recommend all.  I get a commission if you order from Deramores or Wool Warehouse, which are both UK based.  Paradise Fibers is US based.

Pattern is available on Ravelry, with 30% discount good until March 1, 2017, Coupon Code is MLA30.  Will also be available soon on Etsy and Loveknitting.  Come Crochet-A-Long on my Ravelry board and my Facebook Crochet-A-Long group, Crochet A-Long with JulieAnny.  (Type JulieAnny into the Facebook search box to join the group.)

For this look, I mounted the afghan onto a 36″ x 48″ canvas that I picked up at the craft store.  I folded the afghan around the edges and stapled it to the wooden frame.  I love it!

(For those asking, I used a stapler like this and 1/2″ staples.)
