Solid squares Crochet Blanket 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 blanketย and this one, only this time I used two rounds of the color.

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.

For this blanket I used:

Caron simply soft yarn in the colors of:

Grey heather, White, Autumn red, Pumpkin and Sunshine.

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

I have used this pattern before and you can find them here. and another version in spring colors is available on etsy here.

Spring Solid Stripes Baby blanket No. 3

Hello people,

This is the third blanket I am making in this pattern. It is a really simple pattern with some mindless knitting. Well not too mindless I made a couple mistakes on the way. You can check out the other two blankets I made in completely different color combinations- Midnight hues , in blues, and Verdant stripes, in greens and pink.

Finished dimensions: 24X31”

 

Changes to the pattern:

CO130

6 rows of garter stitch

K4 (K10 P10) till last 4 sts K4

(All wrong side rows are purl)

K4 P1 (K10 P10) till last 4 sts K4

Keep increasing by one Purl at the beginning of right side rows till there are 10 and then add knits till 10 and so on.

Last six rows garter st.

I did a four sts edging. I have done a separate crochet edging before and that looks awesome too. You can modify (Like I did from the pattern) to increase or decrease the size of the diagonal stripes by changing the number of sts in the repeat.

Fall Beauty! Can’t get enough of Chevron!

Here is the new blanket I promised to make in fall colors. I really can’t seem to get enough of the chevron pattern. It works up so quickly and gives a really nice gradient look. These colors are something I have been trying to put together for a while now. Finally stumbled onto Mango (caron simply soft) which was the perfect component in this gradient, with an awesome contrast of grey. Made these beautiful Fall colors come together.
