Wrapped In Love Blanket Crochet Kit
My latest blanket design!
This bundle includes everything you need, customise it below:
Crocheting a blanket for a loved one is a special process – your connection with them is infused into every stitch, and it’s a piece of you that they can take with them wherever they go. This is the essence of this blanket and with 8 different sizes from baby up to king bed size, there’s a size for everyone.
This blanket design came to life when I was intrigued with how the Wrap My Soul In Love crochet pattern would look made in a single colour. The texture of the stitches meld together beautifully and create a blanket that you just to snuggle up in.
I’m imagining many of these blankets being made and given to all the favourite people in your life, so you can wrap them in love wherever they are. I hope you enjoy making this blanket and infusing your love into each stitch.
We’re crocheting the Wrapped In Love Blanket using gorgeously soft and chunky merino wool that will look good for a long time. The special yarn will mean you’ll use this heirloom piece for many, many winters and it makes for quick and easy crocheting.
skill level – easy
The Wrapped In Love Blanket uses simple stitch patterns and I recommend making it after the Warm Heart Blanket or Bliss Blanket.

about the yarn
Homelea Bliss is a super chunky / super bulky merino wool yarn that is soft and squishy, and it feels lovely against your skin. This special yarn is fully grown and processed in Australia with no overseas processing (it’s uncommon for an Australian wool yarn to not have some overseas processing).
The twist in Homelea Bliss means that what you make will be an heirloom that you will use for many, many years. It will keep its good looks for a long time, it won’t cover your home, or you, in fluff and will only pill slightly after repeated use.
Homelea Bliss is about 1cm / 0.4in thick.
I know you’re going to love crocheting your Wrapped In Love Blanket!
