If you follow me on my instagram stories then you know that for the past two years I have been making a temperature blanket from squares. In 2020 I made one that represented the maximum temperatures for my city and this year I’m making one that represents the minimum as well as the maximum temperature.
What has surprised me the most is that I have enjoyed making them! And it’s fascinating to see the temperature changes each day and have a blanket come to life based on what it was.
The last two years I have also put out a free guide to help you prepare for and design your own. And this year is no different except that I have totally changed it up and it is BIGGER and BETTER than before! And if you download it you also get the opportunity to purchase the pattern for the square that I used this year and it includes a picture tutorial for joining as you go and how to do moss stitch which I used for my border.
This guide covers how to choose your yarn and colours and how to assign them to temperatures. It also includes a tracker for recording your temperatures so that you’ll always have a record of the temperatures and if you have made the square or row.
So if you’re ready to start planning and making your own temperature blanket then be sure to download my guide.
I’ve already prepared for my 2022 blanket with brand new colours! This year I decided to pick my own instead of relying on a colour pack. I just need to decide now if I stick with the same square as this year or choose a different one. I’m undecided so we’ll see in a month’s time I guess! what do you think of my colours?
And here are my blankets! I’m not sure which direction I’ll add the squares in next year either. In 2020 I worked on the diagonal and this year I’m working horizontally. I’m not sure which direction I prefer, but I’m also tempted to work vertically next year too 🤔
