Stylecraft Blog Tour
A very warm welcome to the Stylecraft Blog Tour!
I hope you enjoyed stopping off with Anne and Michelle at Crochet Between the Worlds yesterday and seeing how they made use of the gorgeous Batik yarn pack.
Tomorrow the tour will be moving on to see the lovely Sarah from Annaboo's House, but in the meantime, let me show you what I've been up to...
As you'll probably know, if you've been following along with the tour, the four yarn packs all feature the lovely new variegated version of the Batik yarn, called Batik Elements. I've worked with Batik yarn a few times now and not only is it a beautiful to look at, it's great for crochet projects as flows over the hook smoothly and makes deliciously plump and full stitches.
I opted for the pack which showed off the Elements Iron (1930) colour, which is wonderfully warm and tonal. Stylecraft have added a lovely selection of colours from the Batik range which compliment this colour perfectly and the whole palette felt really cozy and autumnal to me.
So I decided to do something that I've been meaning to do for quite a while, and make another version of my Sophie wrap. I came up with the original pattern a couple of years ago, inspired by the work of the truly amazing Sophie Digard.
(If you haven't seen her work before, do have a quick peek, it'll blow your mind!)
When these colours arrived I could see I'd been presented the perfect chance and I'm really pleased with how it came out.

Updated to add:
I just wanted to add how I'd used the pack colours in the Sophie pattern...
I used 1 ball of each of the 7 colours on the main part of the scarf, and then used the extra balls of 'Iron' (the Batik Elements colour) for the border.
