Royal Garden Blanket
We proudly present our two NEW and EXCLUSIVE Scheepjes kits: The Royal Garden Blanket designed and created by the well-known Jane Crowfoot, also known by her designer name Janie Crow. Two brand-new kits were created with our Colour Crafter or Stone Washed & River Washed yarns, so that every crafter can crochet their very own Royal Garden Blanket measuring ± 162x162cm.
“This pattern was inspired by my trips to the Green Hotel, Mysore, India. There are lots of places within the hotel and its surrounding grounds to sit and relax, but one of my favourite places is the coffee shop...” - Jane Crowfoot
Inspired by the intricate and vibrant terracotta tiles decorating the floor combined with the patchwork layout of the main garden of the Green hotel, the Royal Garden Blanket is an ode to this marvellous place in Mysore. To transform her fond memories into a tangible project, she incorporated the tiles’ motif and the blooming flowerbeds of the garden into this geometric design, resulting in a striking blanket that will be a centrepiece in any living space.
By selecting colours from our extensive range of Colour Crafter and Stone Washed & River Washed yarns, designer Jane and Scheepjes collaborated to create two incredible kits exclusive to Scheepjes for her striking Royal Garden Blanket. Each kit contains the 16-page pattern booklet in Dutch and English as well as all the required yarns to crochet the complete design.
Colour Crafter Kit: RRP € 65 / £ 49.99 / $ 79.95
Stone Washed & River Washed Kit: € 129 / £ 119.99 / $ 149.95

Colour Crafter Kit
Scheepjes Colour Crafter is a beloved anti-pilling yarn and an everyday essential for crafters. Made from 100% Premium Acrylic, this DK Weight yarn is available in a vast range of 93 colours. With a silky soft look and feel, Colour Crafter is lightweight, hypoallergenic and easy care, perfect for creating all kinds of projects, in particular blankets, accessories, children’s toys and garments!
Stone Washed & River Washed Kit
Scheepjes Stone Washed and Scheepjes River Washed go hand in hand as they share the same qualities. The characteristic look of Stone Washed is achieved by filling the ecru-coloured, cotton ‘core’ of the yarn with a fluffy acrylic fibre in contrasting colours. River Washed, like Stone Washed, also has a coloured ‘core’ (non-ecru) that provides the same contrasting look. Both yarns are made from a 78% Cotton and 22% Acrylic blend, and provide a soft, woolly feel. These Sport Weight yarns are breathable and have a rustic look, making it perfect for home decor projects like the Royal Garden Blanket!
