In Progress: Chunky Rainbow Patchwork Blanket


A few months ago I brought the Lucy rainbow pack from Wool Warehouse but could  bring myself to use it. I loved looking at all the squishy wool and dreaming of making something awesome. After thinking I decided to make a giant patchwork blanket. To get a chunky look I held two strands together and used a 7mm hook. Using my trusty crochet to corner pattern I set about to make squares 7×7 rows. Each ball of wool gives me 4 squares.

After a lot of maths I figured I need 15 balls of yarn to make this blanket a decent size. The squares crochet up fairly fast and it’s an easy project to carry around with you. This time I am making sure I weave the ends in before I sew them all together!
