Crochet solid squares blanket No.2

Here is the third blanket in monochrome series.

This is a quick crochet pattern. For this I used white and three shades of grey. I took this project with me while I was traveling and it was so convenient because you can join the squares later. I made the little squares with the first three rounds and joined them while doing the fourth round.

The most interesting part of this project is I used Random granny square generator (which I highly recommend for such projects). Here is a snapshot of what mine looked like.

So I really followed this arrangement mainly because I am not that good with random.

I have used this pattern before using neon colors. This time I used joining as you go instead of the continuous-join-as-you-go (CJAYG) that  I have used before.

The CJAYG uses the same yarn color to join all squares while the JAYG method you join the squares as you make them in their last rounds.

Neon squares!

Hello People! Happy holidays to you. And hope you are having the most wonderful time of the year!! The best thing about this time of the year for me is gift of time to work on projects and traveling that you can do. Thankfully the winter hasn’t been too bad to hold us indoors all week. So I was able to make some progress in a couple of projects in the last few days.

I got this amazing neon yarn on sale and have been loving working on them. These bright hues are amazing to work in the night (except for joining, which i did in black).

This pattern is great for beginner crochet, not only do you not have to count the stitches, but you can try different types of joining and colors. Here is the link for the pattern. I have used this joining method in my earlier shaded circles blanket. They are joined by tight joining method but I went around with a double crochet in a continuous join-as-you-go method.

Colors:

caron simply soft yarn – neon pink, neon yellow, neon coral and grape.

Joining is with black yarn.

Edging. I did one round of double crochet and one round of  reverse single crochet for edging.

Knitted chevron blanket no. 5 – off-white, grey black and maize

Here I am working on my chevron again! Have I already told you how much I love this pattern a million times.

No wonder I’ve made five blankets from this pattern. I usually work this pattern in a gradient and a contrast color. I used the same technique this time except I used neutral colors but it looks so beautiful. Absolutely love the way it has turned out. It brings out the Black (I know right, you can use black in a blanket) so well. this is the first time for me using black in a blanket.

Materials:

Caron simply soft yarn in colors of off-white, grey heather, black and autumn maize.

Edging: I gave a special yet simple crochet edging with one round of double crochet and one round of single crochet in the back loops in off-white color.
