Welcome to the Nordic Noël blanket crochet along hosted by our friends at Sirdar! This is the coziest blanket to crochet in festive shades of red, green and snowy white - with a sparkling, limited-edition label, free when you buy a Hayfield Bonus DK kit! (Label available while supplies last.)
Over six weeks you’ll journey through a winter wonderland of magical snowflakes, striped Christmas stockings, reindeer and poinsettia surrounded by twinkling stars. You’ll learn crochet tapestry stitch, the intarsia technique, master two kinds of bobble stitches and much more.
Supported by weekly patterns and helpful videos, the NOËL Christmas Blanket CAL is suitable for all skill levels. So join in and sign-up at Sirdar.com to receive your weekly patterns. Starts 1st November!
Learn more about designer Helen Smith and get a preview of the crochet along, the actual blanket and what you can expect throughout the event with this introduction video!
We have kits in the original colorway that include the specially designed label. Shade card is below for reference.
The pattern for the Nordic Noël blanket will be released over the course of 6 weeks beginning November 1st. Sign up on the Sirdar website to have the pattern installments sent to your inbox, or check back here for links to the download page each week!

About the Designer
Helen Smith is the heart and smile behind the popular Instagram account @emkatcrochet. She describes herself as follows:
I started learning to crochet in October 2016. Me and my family were on holiday in wales and I bought a hook, some wool and just watched a video on youtube and made a hat!
Since then I have had a hook in my hand everyday (nearly) and my house has been overtaken by wool! I have fallen head over heels in love with crochet and love making and designing patterns for people to create beautiful things!
Helen also claims to be a lover of rainbows, stripes and bobbles. We think this photo proves these things to be true indeed!
As you work on your project, we would love if you share your progress by tagging us on Instagram and/or Facebook @michiganfineyarns and using our project hashtags #michiganfineyarns #MFYcal. You can also join us Thursdays from 6-8pm for Community Night at the shop and crochet with fellow makers!
