We all need a little elegance in life.

While making crocheted items is often associated with homely, comfortable places like Grandma’s cottage or the nursery in your parents’ home, elegance is an often overlooked aspect. Therefore, we’d like to show you some very elegant bedspread ideas that will definitely shed a new light on just how fancy crocheted items can be. Thus, each of these projects was selected to be a show stopper and center piece for any room you put one in. Nevertheless, they are also workable projects that may require some advanced techniques. However, they are well documented so that you can develop these skills as you go.

Elegant Sophie Universe Bedspread

Don’t you think this elegant square bedspread looks familiar? It’s Sophie Universe Blanket and I’m sure you have seen it before. This beautiful pattern shows how much you can do with a pattern by varying the colors and yarns. This beautiful blanket would be a masterful centerpiece of any bedroom, or simply a great cover to cozy up with on a cold winter’s evening. It’s just challenging enough to keep an advanced crocheter entertained, and just easy enough to get a beginner o up their game and advance in  the craft. It’s one of those patterns everyone has to try

    Hello. Your Sophie is absolutely beautiful. I love the extra rows and blocks you have put on to make her bigger. I recently finished my own Sophie and I call her Sophie meets Frida Kahlo, as she is VERY colourful (done in recycled cotton). I am very blessed to have met Dedri Uys’s mom a year and a half ago and we have become firm friends – she is just as talented as Dedri, as are all her sisters and her mother – the apple does not fall far from the tree as they say 🙂 . I wish you hours of Happy Hooking – yarn love from South Africa xx

  2. Hello,
    The lilliana pattern isnt linked to the same blanket as in the picture, where can we find it?
