Manderley CAL 2020

Manderley Crochet Blanket & CAL!

Manderley Crochet Blanket is my latest creation and is my CAL for 2020.  Oh how I love the book Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier.  It’s the only book I know the opening line from…

Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.

Manderley by Shelley Husband

Manderley is the grand old estate much of the book is set in.  The place is seemingly overrun with massive rhododendron flowers bushes.  And if this pattern is anything, it’s floral. Big blowsy in your face flowers.

Taster pattern

The “taster” pattern is the smallest of the 3 patterns from the Manderley Blanket pattern and you can get it free now! Click here.

Use it to test yarn and hook combinations, to try out colours, and to familiarise yourself with the techniques used in the pattern.

The taster written pattern is totally free.

Order full pattern

Alternatively, you can order the full pattern for AUD$10.  You can get your copy here.   The full pattern has:

  • detailed instructions on how to make a magic circle, false stitch, invisible join and how to work into the lbv;
  • charts and written patterns for the 3 different sized squares and the border;
  • a full glossary of all stitches and techniques;
  • extensive, very specific help for every round including round by round photos;
  • video links for each pattern and the border, including mirrored video for the left-handed folks;
  • 3 layout plans plus info on how to design your own layout; and
