Who’s interested in making a temperature blanket in 2021?!
If you follow me on instagram then you most likely have seen me go live or post a picture of my Temperature Blanket for 2020. This was my first ever temperature blanket, and I have to admit that I have had fun making it. And never have I ever paid so much attention to the weather!
I have decided to make another one for 2021, and quite possibly will make one every year for the foreseeable future. For 2021 I have chosen a pastel pallet. Similar in colours to this year’s blanket, but a pastel range.
For those of you that haven’t seen my blanket or aren’t sure what a temperature blanket is, then let me explain!
Essentially, you pick your colours, decide on a temperature range for each colour, then record the daily maximum temperature for the city where you live and then make a square for that temperature for that day. The picture below is how mine was looking as of the end of October.
I opted to work diagonally and joined as I went. And there are no set rules to how you can design and make your blanket. I chose squares as I’m a fan of how quick and east they are. These are a three round traditional grannie square that takes me 10 minutes or less to make. I’ve seen the blankets created from rows, a large square for each month and even turned into shawls. I’ve also seen the minimum temperature included.
If you’re wanting to make a temperature blanket, then you’ll want to check out my free download! The download contains all the instructions and includes the yarn and colours that I used for this years blanket that you see above. I have also added more to it. This year I have included a place for you to plan out your own colours and temperatures using 10 colours. And I have included a grid for you to record all of your temperatures so that if you don’t make a square each day you still have a record of the temperature.
So who is wanting to make one?
