Crochet 3D squares Blanket

Here is what I have been working on for a long time. I have had this project in progress since last November. I know we all have projects snoozing around. But I usually have only one or two projects (I know I am kinda crazy like that). Unfinished projects drive me crazy and I have to get them done as soon as possible or if I don’t like it, it has to be frogged.

This one was awesome but I had quite a few colors to work with. So it took me a while to get the colors together and get a chart so I knew which one went where. I really like how it turned out. It was worth the wait. This blanket is for a dear friend and she got the yarn and colors and I have to say it was awesome. The yarn is 100% wool and the colors are really nice and go well together. Here is the link to the pattern. I really enjoyed working on this pattern (with this yarn, it was a really nice winter project). The blanket is soft and warm and thick.

Staggered Chevron Baby Blanket

Hello fellow crafters,

Here is my latest staggered chevron blanket. I absolutely love this free pattern I found on Ravelry. This is a new pattern and this is the first time I’m trying it and I already love it and I can see this being made like a billion times in the future.

This time I used a blue gradient and a contrast of yellow but you can easily just make it using a bunch of different combinations and stagger the chevrons as you want.

Materials:

Caron simply soft in the colors. White, Lemonade, Robin’s Egg, Blue Mint, Ocean.

Finished dimensions: 27”X 30”

Edging: Since these are baby boy colors the edging need to be less frilly so I did a simple double crochet and one round of reverse single crochet.

Textured Stripes Knitted blanket No. 2

This is another blanket from the open star knitted blanket pattern, in different colors. I absolutely adore the pattern. I am really liking the green as a contrast to the bright pink gradient here.

The color arrangement for this pattern is as follows:

White, Soft Pink, watermelon, Fuchsia, Chartreuse. (Caron Simply soft yarn)

I went in this order, but did the textured stitch for every third row.

Open Star Knitted stripes baby blanket

Hello beautiful people,

After a short but eventful break, I am back to the world of knitting and crochet. I always carry my knitting during drives whether it is 30 mins or 9 hours. Since I have been traveling, I carried a knitting project with me for the flight and they proved to be good company. After a lot of research turns out you CAN carry knitting on flights. So this blanket was ideal as it didnt have too many colors or too much pattern. The pattern is easily memorizable and does not require constant attention.

The pattern involved an open star stitch. It is a super easy stitch.

R1: K2 *YO K3 (pass the first stitch of the last three over the other two). Repeat * across.

Even rows are Purls.

R3: K1 *YO K3 (pass the first stitch of the last three over the other two). Repeat * across.

This blanket pattern has four colors

Color A: 10 rows of open star stitch

Color B: 10 rows of stockinette stitch

Color C: 10 rows of stockinette stitch

I repeated this in the order of colors I wanted. you can basically use an color and also use random color combinations for this. I really like the texture that this stitch gives and stockinette balances it really well.
