Christmas Tangle MAL Launch UK-General2.2

The Christmas Tangle Blanket MAL features the clever interlocking crochet technique and is a fun festive intermediate-level project created especially for this Scheepjes MAL by designer Astrid Schandy. There are two colourways to choose from using the main featured yarn: Scheepjes Catona. In the first, the background is snowy white with rainbow fairy light motifs, and in the second the green background represents a Christmas tree with jewel-coloured lights. Astrid will also provide swatches of alternative colourways to inspire crafters preferring to choose their own palette.

About the designer

Astrid first picked up a hook in 2016 and discovered interlocking crochet a couple of years later. She found the technique so addictive that she has used it exclusively ever since. A lack of available patterns led to her creating her own designs and before long her first blanket pattern was introduced to a Facebook CAL, where she impressed as a guest designer. Astrid is a busy single mom of three, working a full-time job alongside designing. Being a closet mathematician, she is fascinated by algorithms, fractals and geometry, which feature heavily in her designs. Without using any software, each pattern is extensively worked out until every detail is perfected, before even touching the hook and yarn. It is a process that takes months, and results in a very special relationship between designer and pattern. When Astrid publishes, she feels bereft, as if a bird has flown the nest. The delight of seeing her patterns created by others soon replaces that feeling though. Her cherished birds are brightening many other nests!
