Here’s a tale ….. of why “Amalfie” of our Amalfie Coast Blanket Pattern and crochet kit is spelt with an “e” on the end …..
I’m often asked why I spelt Amalfie with an e ….. as the Amalfi Coast in Italy isn’t spelt that way.
When I was designing this crochet blanket I was thinking of the terraced gardens of Italy, the design of the blankets’ stepped pattern was inspired by the landscape of this region in Italy.
Personal and Emotional
After I designed the blanket, came the pattern writing, it was a very emotional time as my “Alfie” my beautiful Akita had just passed away and I decided, in thinking fondly to my special friend and companion whom I had had since he was a puppy, that to honour his memory I would add an e ….. for “Am Alfie”.
I am very proud that Alfie’s name sake, my Amalfie Coast Blanket is very popular and has sold as a crochet kit and crochet pattern worldwide.
