Stylecraft Blog Tour by Charlotte Johnson

Hey, I’m charlotte and I am the in-house designer here at Stylecraft.

I hope your all having a fantastic time following our blog tour, we have seen some irresistible projects along the way from our team of Blogstars. Yesterday, we had the pleasure of seeing Zooty Owl and her fabulous project and now I get to share all the fun I had with my Blog Tour experience, before we come to a close with Janie Crow.

Now then, let me tell you a little bit about what I got up to with the delicious Blog Tour pack.

It was so lovely to be asked to do a design for the Blog Tour. The concept of being able to design anything without having to think of the trends of the season or how the designs fit into a small collection was like a breath of fresh air. I think I got a little carried away…

 

 

I found a lot of freedom in designing with the Blog Tour pack. Not only is Bellissima one of my favourite yarns in our Stylecraft collection, I also got to play with colour!!! I love the smooth round finish of the Bellissima and Bambino yarn; it has great stitch definition and is heaven on your needles.

So, I set about thinking of all the exciting things that I could make with my stunning pack of yarn…

I happened to fall upon some beautiful vintage photographs of Ottavio and Rosita Missoni and this set all of my creative juices flowing.

I Found an array of amazing photographs of the Iconic Missoni knitwear and I just had to get knitting. I decided I wanted to play with the beautiful pastels in the summer pudding pack and create a soft zig zag pattern.

 This turned into becoming a 70’s inspired knitted rucksack. I’m a sucker for eye catching accessories!!

But knitting the rucksack just wasn’t enough I decided this heavenly stripe pattern would look amazing as a big pom pom hat…. And of course, I needed a scarf to match!

I became excited and giddy at the thought of bringing all the colours and blending them all together creating a twist on the iconic Missoni Stripe!!!Now it’s time for the super part of our Blog Tour where you can get your mitts on a FREE pattern AND enter our giveaway to win the Summer Pudding yarn pack!
