Painted Pixels Blanket Crochet Pattern!!

Tee hee hee!! I'm trying not to be too silly, but this new little hooky happening makes me all just a wee bit giddy!!

I'm calling it "Painted Pixels Blanket" because the little boxes look like  pixels and the delightful blending of colors reminds me of blending little pots of paint on an artist's palette.

I am thrilled with it! Serious color happiness going on here! Coolest thing is, you get all the creative color-play you want. I used 7 different colorways to get this effect, but it can be worked up in any number of colors you want! 

Look at these little color sections...

It's like each little section has it's own delightful little personality. 

Now, if you are one of those folks who thinks joining is a dreaded task, let me tell you, I came up with a very simple technique here that makes it all happen very quickly without needle and yarn, but rather your hook. I like easy joining.

The pattern includes instructions for making a baby size blanket or an afghan. Actually, it could be made in any size or dimensions you want with this pattern.

Color, texture and options. That's what Felted Button is all about! 

You can find the pattern in my shops...

I hope you enjoy painting with yarn! I know I do! I had a friend call me a "yarntist". I like that! With this pattern, you can be one, too!

Hugs and happy days to you!

    1. Thanks, Annette! It's always so satisfying to have something that you can envision in your head clearly with only the hope that it will translate into what you pictured actually turn out just as you imagined. It has been like that with this one and I'm very happy! Glad it makes you smile!

  5. What yarn did you use for this and how much yarn is required for a baby size blanket?

  6. I forgot to add to my comment, that I think the beautiful of your blanket is really complemented by the gradient colors you used for it. It's lovely.

  13. Susan,

    Did you use self-striping yarn? Maybe that's what "colorway" means? Still a bit of a newbie here. :)

    1. Hey, Tammy, we've all been newbies at some point! When I say 7 colorways, I'm essentially saying 7 different colored skeins. But, yes, this is self-striping yarn with really long runs of color. So each little motif gets its own personality. It's seriously fun!
