This unisex blanket has the smaller dimensions of a modern carriage blanket and is a perfect project for any season because it's crocheted with an incredibly soft and easy-care cotton-blend yarn held doubled. The pattern features an 8-row repeat that is designed to give the blanket a textural dimension that echoes the linear stitch design. The border includes a simple reverse single crochet stitch that imparts a firm, sleek finish.
The blanket shown was crocheted with 7 balls of Knit Picks' Comfy Fingering Weight yarn in the "Marlin" colorway.
4 stitches and 1.5 rows = 1 inch in double crochet
I'm a Long Island dweller who loves to design knitwear (and even a smidge of crochet!). My designs can be found here on Craftsy and on my website, www.makewisedesigns.com!
What inspires me? rich colors; clean, strong lines; modern interpretations of traditional motifs; and texture in all of its forms.
