Sharing is nice, right?! I worked up this awesome lightweight blanket with a nifty corner-to-corner stitch (sometimes called Crazy Stitch) and I thought it would be nice to share it for FREE with you!!
I'm calling it Spring into Summer Blanket
because it seems to be the perfect project for working on as things warm up (well, at least on this side of the world!).
I love the corner-to-corner stitching, because essentially you can work the width until just under half your yarn is used up (remember extra for the border) and then start to decrease. The repeat is so simple, too, that once mastered it doesn't take much brain energy. That's a good thing for me!!
But, of course, the thing I love the MOSTEST about this blanket is the COLOR!! The yarn is Red Heart Unforgettable in the Candied colorway. The super long color runs do all of the striping for you and guess what??? No ends!! Well, only when one skein ends and the other begins. You don't even fasten off to start the border!! Wahoo!
Isn't that border just so stinkin' cool the way it blends those colors? You never know exactly which one will happen next. It's a little happy color surprise every round.
You can find the pattern in my Ravelry shop here, or my Craftsy shop here.
Enjoy your little Spring into Summer!!
Remember to keep in the "Button Loop" by staying connected with me on Facebook and Pinterest. It's a load of colorful fun!
