Solid square blanket no. 5

Hello beautiful people,

I had a busy week and have been working on multiple projects the past couple weeks. A custom order for the pixel blanket that I last worked on came by and I couldn’t wait to get started on it. I kept everything aside to work on that. and it has come together beautifully. I really hope she likes it.

For this blanket I used three shades of blue, two shades of grey, and white. I am not a random color arrangement person so I used Word to come up with the placement of colors just like the last blanket and got to work. The pattern and joining technique (join as you go) for this blanket is the same as the last pixel blanket (Solid Squares No. 4).

This time I wanted to make a pixelly blanket I as trying to look for good color layouts. Finally played around with Word little bit and used this color arrangement. I really like the way the colors have turned out.

I used a join as you go, as I have in my previous blanket and this one, only this time I used two rounds of the color.

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.

It is so much fun to try new colors for edging. As her nursery has a nautical theme, we decided to have a turquoise trim. I hope she likes it.

The edging is Blue mint to give it a nautical twist- One round of sc followed by one round of hdc.
