This is just spectacular! I dont have access to that glorious Scheepjes yarn, but after reading through the pattern, I think I can approximate the colors here in the US. The designer provides a wonderful symbol chart, but even better are her step by step photos for each round. She even includes both Front and Back sides so you can instantly tell if youre on the right track. Ill need to check my yarn stash for the right colors, but I might work up a practice swatch regardless.

What a lovely and colorful blanket! I just read that Namaqualand is a name of a place in South Africa that grows colorful and beautiful flowers in the Spring. That's right. Charlotte, the designer of this project got her inspiration from the Namaqualand flowers and she did this specially for the "Be Inspired South African Tour 2016". When you look closely at the blanket, you will realize that those flowers that look like they were embossed are rose petals stitched in a special way. Oh my goodness. How lovely! This is so far one of the best crochet designs I have seen in the Internet. This goes up closer up on my list of upcoming projects. Can't wait to do this. Awesome!

Any and everybody that knows me knows that I am what you can call a plain Jane. When there are too many colors, it just makes me uncomfortable. I don't know what it is about this afghan, but it is stunning. I love the color combination and I am quite possibly thinking about making it. Thank you for this beautiful pattern.

OMG what a beautiful way to use your skills for all the stitches I've learned! This Namaqualand Blanket pattern is top rated, with the pattern using so many great looking stitches and the pictures to help you along. Wow so sweet! I love the colors and the whole thing comes together looking like some thing I have never seen before. I'm looking forward to making this one! Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

Wow. This is such a beautiful blanket. I love all of the colors the designer used. They look so wonderful together. It is such a stunning blanket. She did a great job presenting the pattern on her blog. It is easy to read and contains a long of detailed directions and quite a few pictures and diagrams.

I absolute love this blanket!!! It is fairly easy and looks beautiful!!

At first glance seeing the intermediate rating I must admit it did not phase me. When I started reading the directions and the designer stated she used and I quote "The pattern literally contains every lesson I have learned since starting to crochet" I gave pause. As I read through the directions and saw the pictures, I am most confident I can complete the project with ease. Bring on the tea and snacks! lol

Wowee!! I am breathless right now. Seeing a finished project that is as beautiful as this makes me so happy! The pattern is just very specific and very detailed, and not necessarily too difficult to make in my opinion. She knows how to write a pattern properly, too. I have seen so many patterns using this particular yarn and I have got to give it a try at some point. I was wondering what that name was, too, and now I know.

Namaqualand is here in South Africa so it was the name of this pattern that first caught my eye. It is very dry, arid, sparsely populated but quite beautiful and in Spring the incredible large tracts of wild flowers bring visitors from all over the world. I am sure that it was the flowers that inspired this gorgeous blanket and I, in turn, am hugely inspired to make it for the coming winter! Thank you for this pattern!
