Heather says of her inspiration: "The Enchanted Wood blanket has been a labour of love since the Filet Fantastic blanket in 2021. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the no-sew building block construction so I decided to utilise that method again for the latest CAL blanket. Whilst it is of similar construction this year’s CAL is focused on texture to produce something that you truly just want to keep running your hands over!

This year’s theme came from two places, my favourite walking spots in the woods and one of my favourite Enid Blyton books as a child."

The Enchanted Wood throw blanket will be released in 8 parts which are available for free on the Keep Calm and Crochet On UK Blog. It will also be available as an e-book on Ravelry for a nominal fee.    

For this CAL you will need a 3.5mm (US size E/4) hook. The finished size of the blanket is 122cm (48”) wide x 137cm (54”) long
