Vintage Sweethearts CAL: Set Up

One thing I’ve discovered while sorting out our living room is that I really need to de-stash! Seriously, I’m up to my neck in yarn. So I’m joining in with a few CALs in order to use up yarn that’s just sitting around.

I’ve decided to use Stylecraft Batik DK for my┬áVintage Sweethearts blanket. The wool/acrylic mix will make it cosy for winter (yes, I am thinking that far ahead!) and the mottled effect will add to the vintage style.

Going off the Colour Crafter palette, my colours are as follows:

Crafter – Batik

Den Bosch (pink) – Cherry
Sittard (light pink) – Raspberry
Lelystad (peach) – Coral
Urk (pale blue) – Storm
Den Helder aqua – Violet
Dokkum demin blue – Indigo
Almelo pastel green – Sage
Nijmegen olive – Olive
Ameland jade – Teal
Heerenveen grey – Graphic
Leerdam yellow – Old Gold
Hoorn purple – Plum
