Day Tripper Picnic Blanket Crochet Along
Join Sirdar and Katie Jones for the sunniest make along of the summer.
This beginner-friendly CAL starts with the simplest granny square and builds your crochet confidence over six weeks to create a bright, bold picnic blanket ready to make summer memories.
Designed by Katie Jones
Katie Jones is the colourful personality behind the popular crochet brand KatieJonesKnit.
Katie designed the Day Tripper Picnic Blanket exclusively for Sirdar, inspired by the pop art of Peter Blake and The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine.
Perfect for experienced crocheters and beginners alike, Katie’s design is made up of five square motifs in a graphic abstract pattern, to bring the joy of summer to your crochet hook.
Get Ready to Crochet Along
Katie chose eight summery shades of Hayfield Bonus DK for her Day Tripper Picnic Blanket and you’ll need a total of 12 balls and a 4.00mm hook to crochet your own.
Place an order for the CAL kit now with us to get ready for the 11th of May.
