The Celestia CAL is an original design by Tatsiana, exclusively for Crochet Now and we are so excited to have worked with Tatsiana on this breathtaking design! The first version, shown above, was designed using 15 balls of Scheepjes Colour Crafter, the popular all-round 100% acrylic yarn that is absolutely perfect for crochet blankets. We adore the way gentle pastel colours sit against the slightly stronger shades of mustard and grey in this version, and cream combine with each colour through Mosaic crochet creates a great colourwork effect that will stretch your skills.

The second version of this blanket uses Scheepjes Metropolis is a bold, striking colourway selected by Tatsiana and is simply beautiful. The strong, bright colours of this exquisite Merino and nylon blend yarn stand out amazingly on a base of darl grey for a dramatic finish. Both the Colour Crafter and Metropolis versions of this blanket use a 4mm hook - be sure to check that tension folks!
