Yuli Summer Blanket Tutorial

DSCN0473_Fotor_Fotor_Collage 1_Fotor

Hey hey ;)

Unfortunately lately I have very little time to spend on my crochet projects and almost no time for new patterns/tutorial. I had few free hours and it was enough time to create this … so it will be short photo tutorial with diagram… and very little writing;))

This motif was found on the web long ago… I have a feeling its from Japanese site… really don’t remember. I started this blanket last winter and finished it this summer, posted some pics and few people asked for pattern… here it is;) Enjoy xx

Summer Blanket Tutorial

You will need

  • Yarn of your choice in DK in 7 different colors.
  • I used Vinnies Nikkim in Natural, Peach, Pale blue-grey, Ruby grapefruit, Pacific blue, Grey, Plum; Note – I had enough yarn to make 5 motifs from each ball (50gr), but it’s all depends on your tension;  
  • 4 mm hook;
  • tapestry needle and scissor for weaving in threads
  • This pattern uses American Standard Abbreviations
