AWESOME BLANKETS & AFGHANS ROUND UP
( #Blogaday 16/365 )
With the cooler temperatures presently (in India), I thought this would be a good time for a quick round up for awesome blankets and afghans.
If you have been following my blogs from the start, then you may have seen / used some of these patterns before, if not, then here’s a neat space where they’re all listed.
Some of these projects have been made before I started blogging – and looking back at the photographs, I decided I’d write one comprehensive blog about them all – as I would like to share all these beautiful patterns with you all J
The first blanket I’d like to mention is my Satrangi blanket.
Satrangi means Seven colours a.k.a rainbow ( pronounced ‘sut -rung-ee’), so my stunning blanket is made up of 7 brilliant colours using our Indian Vardhaman Millenium yarn. I used one skein of each colour and the pattern link above.
I loved the pattern with its pineapple-like look and the shades of color that make it look that much more WOW!
This lovely blanket was also made for a challenge by the Crochet Crowd sometime back. It got some notable mention then, and was loved and well used by the recipient too.
My blanket was 42” x 55”.
I used our lovely Indian Vardhaman Millennium acrylic yarns with a 4.5 mm crochet hook
For the superb Satrangi baby blanket, I used the really lovely pattern from Redheart http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/rainbow-view-throw
The next blanket is the Tulip set afghan, which is absolutely stunning. This is a pattern by +Pat Ford and is a pattern for a baby afghan as well as a really cute little afghan for her little doll. The little tulips are so well made and this is a thoroughly well tested pattern. I’d say that this is an Intermediate skill level.

My little girl's afghan was 36" x48"; and the doll's blanket was 16" x 22.5" . I used about 3 skeins (300 gms = 1700 yds) of 4-ply Indian Oswal acrylic yarn (Mango colour) and under 1 skein of white for the border.
Enjoy creating your blanket and afghan. Do remember to tag me, so we can both drool over it together. Thanks.

I love art and craft - and am grateful for this hobby that keeps me busy and out of 'mischief'.
We (as a family) are also staunch protectors of stray animals and will continue to do our bit to make this a safe world for them.
We strongly believe in R-R-R and several of my projects will show this.
