I’m so happy to officially announce the crochet spring blanket crochet along!
This crochet along is going to be like my previous crochet alongs. We will work together week by week to make this spring blanket. Working in chunks will make this blanket manageable to make and not so overwhelming!
Below you will find frequently asked questions as well as the list of materials needed to complete this project.
Crochet Spring Blanket Details
- The crochet spring blanket is made up of granny squares and 8 different appliques.
- Granny squares are joined together in the end. Appliques are sewn onto the cream colored squares.
- The blanket measures roughly 46″ x 46″. My blanket turned out smaller than expected since the worsted weight yarn I used was a ‘thinner’ worsted weight yarn. Feel free to add rounds to your granny squares for a larger blanket.
Crochet Along Questions
When does it start?
The first part of the crochet along will be released Sunday, February 2, 2020 9am EST.
An additional part will be released every Sunday over a span of 9 weeks. The last part of the blanket will be released March 29th.
How do I sign up?
You can bookmark this page and come back every Sunday to view the new pattern each week or you can sign up to be on the email list to get notifications when each part is available.
Is it free?
Yes! Each part of the pattern will be released to view for free on my blog.
There is an option to purchase the PDF which includes all of the patterns in one file to complete the blanket.
Can I use different yarn?
You can! For this particular blanket, I recommend using Caron Simply Soft as a substitute for the yarn that I used. It is similar in weight and feel. You can also use other worsted weight yarns, but the final size of the blanket may vary.
Do the safety eyes poke through?
I’ve used safety eyes for several of my blankets with no issues! When I use my blankets, I never notice them sticking out or poking me.
I have seen safety eyes clipped down in the back or melted down with an iron to avoid concern of any poking.
However, you can use black yarn in place of the safety eyes if you are more comfortable with that especially if making for a baby.
