The Hestia Blanket crochet pattern is here!
The Hestia Blanket
After several months of hard work, I’m thrilled to let you know that the Hestia Blanket Crochet Pattern is finally here!
For a limited time only, it is available with an introductory discount of 15%. See below for the code but be quick to make sure you don’t miss out!
Inspired by botanical shapes and ceramic tiles, the Hestia Blanket is made of tapestry crochet squares that combine to create a truly beautiful blanket.
A sumptuous border frames the “tiles”, continuing some of the tapestry crochet elements of the squares into it.
Did you know that Hestia was the Greek goddess of the hearth? She looked after the home and family. I hope that by making a Hestia Blanket, you can bring something wonderful into your home that you and your family will cherish for years to come.
The Hestia Blanket Crochet Pattern
The pattern is available in both UK and US crochet terms, so you can use whichever you prefer.
It includes full written instructions and explanations of how to do each special technique used in the blanket. There are also lots of photos, a chart, and links to some super handy video tutorials (see below). So, even if you’re new to tapestry crochet, I’ve tried to include plenty of support for you to succeed.
Eight wonderful crocheters have tested the pattern, some of whom had not tried tapestry crochet before, and they all gave it a big thumbs up! A big “thank you!” to all of them for their fabulous work, which you can see on Instagram here.
If you have any questions at all about the pattern, please just send me an email and I’ll be happy to help.

Hestia – the specifics
Let’s look a bit more closely at some of the details..
Construction and size
Nine relatively large square “tiles” are joined in a 3 x 3 arrangement to make this square blanket. A wide border surrounds them.
The final blanket measures 105 x 105 cm.
I used Scheepjes Catona yarn to make my Hestia Blanket. This is a 4 ply cotton yarn with 125m per 50g ball.
I used the following shades and amounts:
- MC: 11 x 50 g balls of Light Navy (164)
- CC1: 2 x 50 g balls of Scarlet (192)
- CC2: 2 x 50 g balls of Rust (388)
- CC3: 1 x 50 g ball of Saffron (249)
- CC4: 2 x 50 g balls of Brick Red (504)
However, you could certainly substitute this for other 4 ply yarns. Some of my testers used yarns containing bamboo or acrylic, for example, and they worked really well. Some also used DK yarn and that worked great too, although it would of course result in a bigger square (which may be what you’d like)!
I used a 2.5mm hook to make my blanket.
As with all my tapestry crochet patterns, I recommend going down a hook size from the hook size suggested for your chosen yarn. This helps to make sure that the stitches are tight enough to cover the carried yarn.
