In 2013 I designed a project for my crochet club using Persian and Moroccan textiles and architecture as my inspiration. The resulting blanket was exclusive to my crochet club members, so the pattern is no longer available. It is a theme I wanted to revisit though, as the colours and shapes work so well in crochet and we are constantly asked for a project that echoes the original design.
This blanket is simpler in construction than the original crochet club project and there are just four different motifs within the design; the main octagon piece, of which you need to make sixteen, is surrounded by variations on granny squares and triangles in shades of blue and cream. The project is relatively simple to make and I really enjoyed designing it.
In 2017 Persian Tiles was recoloured by crochet designer Lucia Dunn. Lucia's resulting project is called 'Eastern Jewels' and many stockists sell yarn packs for the new version that include a colour substitution document. Please note that the Eastern Jewels colour way is not available separately to yarn packs and the colour way is also not listed in this pattern.
The original Persian Tiles pattern is written for Stylecraft Life DK and Special DK and lists yarn amounts for both of these in the original colour way.
