You may have noticed that I haven’t posted about my temperature blanket for quite some time…I got behind and then I just couldn’t force myself to pick it back up. I found that I just wasn’t loving the pattern like I thought I would. For a project that I am going to work on for an entire year, loving the pattern is essential! So, I took even some more time off from the project and then I saw another another person that had the same problem as me and she picked a pattern that she loved and just made it work! So that became my solution too!
One of my favorite patterns right now is called a Corner to Corner blanket or C2C. I figured out how big I wanted my blanket to be, adjusted my original colors, adjusted all of my temperature ranges and now I am in love with the results!
I would like my blanket to end up being a throw blanket just about the right size to lay under while I’m sitting on the couch. Here is how I decided to do it:
The C2C blanket consists of clusters of stitches. I decided that I needed my blanket to be 72 clusters by 102 clusters. That gives me a total of 7344 clusters. I am stitching 20 clusters in the color of the day each day. There will be 24 extra stitches that I need to round out my blanket so I added an extra stitch in each color until I had achieved the 24 stitches.
So far I have completed both January and February and I am loving the results! Now I just need more time to crochet so I can get caught up to the present day!
Here is the result from January 1st through January 31st!
Here is the results from January 1st through February 29th! I really love how you can see the temperatures warming up but every once in awhile a cool day slips in there!
