This pattern includes a planner which you can colour in to keep track of your moods.

The Moody Blanket will be a super cosy blanket and at the same time - a unique visual diary of your moods. Each square will represent a week and you will choose your colour for each day based on your mood.

A knit-along will begin on Monday 2nd January 2017 and you can follow my progress and share your your own on Instagram using #moodykal
UPDATE The 2017 knit-along has now finished but please feel free to continue sharing pics!

You can also join my Ravelry group for Moody Blanket chat and tips.

If you’re late to the knit-along…don’t worry! If you’re starting your blanket later, you can just knit for a full six months or a year from the point you start.

There are two lovely colourways to choose from – Moody Blues or Purple Haze. Each of the five colours has a little list of moods allocated to it and you can add to the lists if you’re in a mood that doesn’t fit. The pattern uses Almerino DK by Rooster yarns which is a super soft and warm blend of Alpaca and Merino.

UPDATE Rooster have now discontinued Almerino DK (November 2017) so if you are starting a Moody Blanket now I would recommend choosing a different DK weight yarn.

You can choose to knit-along for six months and make a small Moody Blanket which would make a lovely cosy sofa blanket. Or you can knit for a full year to make the large Moody Blanket which would sit nicely across a double bed to keep your toes toasty!
