New Year, New Blanket…



January signifies the start of a new year long blanket project for me – 2017 will see me working on a Sky / Weather blanket

Using Lucy’s Neat Ripple pattern from Attic 24, I will crochet a row each day, the colour influenced by that days’ sky colour / weather

My yarn of choice for a blanket like this is Stylecraft Special dk – the colours I’ve chosen are:

Aster – clear blue skies

Cloud Blue – blue sky & puffy white clouds

Silver – grey skies

Grey – rain

Graphite – stormy

White – snow / fog

As you can see the first week of January has brought quite a lot of grey skies & rain here in Staffordshire, interspersed with two rather beautiful sunny but chilly days

I hooked up a 213 stitch foundation chain which has given me a width of 120cm – as the blanket will potentially have 365 rows (!!) & be exceedingly long, I’ve decided to make 2 blankets, each one 6 months long

Full project notes can be found on my Ravelry page

Looking forward to seeing how this develops…
