SANDALWOOD - PERSIAN TILES
Persian Tiles is my most popular design. The pattern has sold throughout the world and it even has it's own Facebook group!
It was originally released in a blue and orange colour way, which was quite soon accompanied by a light blue and pink version.
A few years ago my good friend Lucia, of Lucia's Fig Tree, made her own colour way, which we called Eastern Jewels.
The colours and layout of this Sandalwood version was inspired by a collection of carpets that I saw on one of my trips to Mysore,
an Indian city famous for products made from the wonderfully aromatic tree Sandalwood. Until recently this colour way was an
exclusive kit on the Mary Maxim website, but we are so pleased to now have their blessing to create kits here in the UK.
The Sandalwood colour way is only available as a kit, which contains 13 x 100g of Premier Yarns Everyday DK, the original pattern, a yarn
substitution document and a sew in label. Please note that we cannot provide a yarn sub document separately to the kit in order to preserve
its exclusivity. If you are in the US or Canada we recommend that you purchase the kit via Mary Maxim to keep down the delivery costs.
You can find the original Persian Tiles Pattern (written for the blue and orange colour way) here as a paper pattern,
or you can download it via Ravelry and Etsy.
You can find kits for the Sandalwood Blanket in our web shop here.
