Patchwork Crochet Blanket



I started this patchwork blanket around this time last year and finally finished it up last week.



It's a big blanket, it fits nicely on my full size bed. The pattern is from the wonderful Dottie Angel, t is called the Ordinarily Extraordinary Blanket. You can find the awesome tutorial here.


I used mainly Red Heart acrylic yarn for this project. I have to admit something, when I first finished the blanket I really did not like the combination of colors. It was even too bright and colorful for me, but then I put in on my bed and the colors softened and now I am completely smitten with it! One of my favorite finished blankets to date!




And of course Sophie is a fan :)


Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday! Lots of love! xoxo

  6. I love the look of something that is simple and yet so beautiful. This is that in a nutshell. It reminds me of all those wonderful nine-patch quilts that I see all over the place (only this being the crochet version), esp. at Mias land liv blog. Thanks for sharing, it looks great in your bedroom.

  7. Oh my goodness! I simply adore the colours you've chosen. In fact, I'd quite happily move in to your whole room and stay there. That is, of course, if Sophie doesn't mind!

    Really, truly stunning.

  16. What a beautiful, happy blanket! I think the punches of colour are just perfect - I completely relate to being a bit out of your comfort zone with certain shades, but like your blanket, when it's all finished and in situ, it looks rather wonderful! Chrissie x

  17. Hi Becky. What a gorgeous addition to your bed. I think it looks perfect. And it is so your color theme. Not too bright at all in my opinion. I've looked at that pattern before and I even started a row but stopped for some reason... Tat was a good 2 or 3 years ago. Now I'm tempted to pick it up again. Simplicity rocks in my opinion. Love the chair picture. Makes me crave for ice cream. 😃
