Sometimes a crocheter craves a project that doesn’t require that much attention or experience. Last summer I had the same feeling. Vacation time was coming up, and all I wanted was to do something relaxing and straightforward. So, I made some samples and came up with a fabulous idea. Indeed, this pattern also blows you away by choice of colors and yarns, but it is very calming to crochet away those meters and see different colors passing by. For that reason, I believe this pattern could also be related to color therapy. Besides that, there are almost no ends to weave in, and no blocking is needed. So, did I convince you to give it a go? Enjoy it !

General information:

  • I used Scheepjes Whirl and Whirlette for this pattern. The combination is made out of 1 Scheepjes Whirl 759 Jumpin Jelly and 3 Scheepjes Whirlette 851 Liqourice. One color needs to be the gradient type of yarn, and the other must be the solid color. You will need approx. One thousand meters of gradient yarn and 1200 meters of solid yarn for this pattern.

  • the pattern is straightforward - beginners level. You only work with some basic stitches, and you can easily change the length and width of the pattern.

  • Finished size of the blanket will be 70 x 140 cm.

  • the pattern includes a written version, a small photo tutorial on how this technique works, and a chart.

  • pattern is available in English (US) and Dutch.
