21st Week of Crocheting a Weather Blanket

This week it was very sunny and warm all day, on the weather blanket it looks very monotonous in focus. But compared to the last week a nice contrast and you can clearly see how the gradient becomes more and more orange. Well and my magic ball has told me, that we already can get the next colour on the hooks in the coming week.

Attention Oversize!

Some of you have come to a much longer length in the projection, because you have crocheted with thicker yarn and bigger needles. Of course this is a problem if you want to reach a certain length, but not more. That´s why I collected some ideas for you, about how to continue the weather blanket.

  • No one dictates you how long you have to crochet a weather blanket, it can be one year, but also more or less. So you can just stop when the weather blanket has reached the wanted length. And the of course start a new weather blanket. 😉
  • A bedspread can look quite good with a wrapper at the upper end. However this should be not to big and who likes can also end up with a pretty border. So a little extra length is just right for a bedspread with a wrapper.
  • A reversible blanket is created when the oversized blanket is half folded at the end and crocheted together. Here you can also bring in a lining and whoever likes can also crochet two separate halves.
  • You can also just let the blanket get as long as it want to. This way you get a absolutely unique piece and such a oversized blanket is great to cuddle all together.
  • If you are bothered to work on such a thick blanket during the summer, you can simply start a new one. Of course it should have exactly the same width as the first and at the end you just crochet both parts together.

I hope this ideas will help you and if you also have some nice ideas for oversized blankets you are welcome to share them with us via a comment.
