Scheepjes knit-along

Join our colourful blanket knit-along!

Create a beautiful heirloom blanket with Simply Knitting's brand new knit-along! Find the first two squares in issue 179

26th October 2018

Begin your winter knitting with a project destined to become a family heirloom. Lynne Rowe’s vibrant, heart-themed blanket is a must-knit and you can make it square by square over the next six issues!

The Your Heart’s Desire blanket is knitted in Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn, a 4ply blend of 78% cotton and 22% acrylic, which comes in 50g/130m balls. This soft cotton-blend yarn is made for wrapping you up warm. It's available in 36 pretty colours, so you’re bound to find the shade you need.

In issue 184, the last of the KAL issues, we’ll print a numbered grid for square placement, details on adding the blanket’s border and how to sew everything up neatly.

Find the first two squares – a stocking stitch square with reverse stocking stitch heart and a bobble stitch diamond – in issue 179, on sale now! Click here to find out more.

Don't forget to join us on Facebook here to share your progress with the Simply Knitting group, and post your pics on social media using the hashtag #simplyknitalong – we love to see them!
