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.

Solid Squares blanket No. 3

Here is my latest ultra soft blanket.

I made this using Redheart Unforgettable boutique yarn. Being variegated, I liked the way they got crocheted into squares. The pattern is super simple and I’d highly recommend it for a beginner crocheter and also if you want to try out different colors. I really liked the way the colors played out using this yarn. The yarn is single ply, I tried knitting with it but that did not go very well. I loved the way it crocheted.

Here is the link to the pattern and I used the join-as-you-go for joining. And these are the two other blankets I’ve made before in different colors. This one uses join as you go technique for joining, while this one uses continuous-join-as-you-go technique for joining.

I did the squares with 4 rounds and joining them in the last round. I alternated each color and staggered them through the rows. I have 6 squares in each row and 8 rows.

Finished Dimensions: 28X34”

Textured stripes Knitted Blanket No. 3

I am loving doing these monochrome blankets for a custom order. They define the pattern so well.

Here is the third textured stripe blanket. This is where you can find the free pattern. I have made this in two different color combinations before. Here is the ravelry link for that.

I just used white, two shades of grey and black for this and went for the gradient.

Finished dimensions: 32X39”
