Sharon’s Glamping Blanket

She’s done it again! Designer Casapinka and her cat, Sharon from Security, are hosting another fabulous KAL, and this time it is an adorable chunky knit blanket!

I’m a beginner can I create this blanket?

Yes! The project features several different stitch patterns to keep it fun and interesting, but nothing you can’t handle. You will need to know how to work knits, purls, increases and decreases. Best bit is, since it is worked in chunky weight yarn, it will knit up quickly!

How will I get the kit?

The kits will be shipped directly to you from Berroco (we won’t have them in the shop). You can purchase your kit AND the pattern on our website making sure you pick the colors and size you want, and the pattern will appear in your Ravelry library on October 30th, in plenty of time for the KAL that starts November 6th.

Another CasaPinka KAL?!

I know, she’s on fire! This is part of Casapinka’s ongoing effort to support local yarn shops. We are partnering with Berroco to provide you with kits for the project in the very same yarn that Casapinka created the blanket in. While this is a knit along, you don’t have to participate in it as a knit-along if you don’t want to. If you want to participate in the KAL check out the Casapinka Ravelry Group here and/or The Sharon Show Facebook group which is here.

What sizes?

It comes in the following sizes:
  • Cat 8″x12″
  • Baby/Small Dog/Portly Cat (side eye to Kit Kat) 24″ X 36″
  • Dog/Lap 35″x 44″
  • Sofa 46″ X 58″

The pattern page is here, but please note that there is only a placeholder and the actual pattern will be available October 30. The four kits that Berroco is offering (and that Casapinka and Sharon picked out) are shown on our shop page.

We know from past experience that when you order the kit you want the pattern too! So we’re making this easy! You will receive the yarn ($9/skein)  AND the pattern ($7), and we will cover shipping!  The yarn will be sent directly to you, and the pattern will appear in your Ravelry account on the release date of October 30.

The inspiration

retro caravan with pink sidingSharon shares “I was inspired to design this because I found this super cute camper that I’m trying to buy (I doctored it to make it pink.) I used The Boss’ Pay Pal account for a deposit so I’m treading on thin ice but hopefully she will also love it. Anyway, it was this little camper that inspired me to make a glamping blanket and I know all your cats and dogs (my crew!) would really like one, too!”
