blanket with neon accents


welcome back!


the last few weeks i worked on my gray-brown blanket. 


when i started this blanket i did not feel for crocheting granny squares or ripples or another familiar pattern. i decided to use a simple stitch pattern and to make it a little unusual. as you can see it has a block, lines and angles. maybe a little weird to your opinion?



brown and gray is a little too faint for me and i embroidered on it with neon colored yarn. the neon yarn i bought last year because i wanted to crochet a white scarf with neon accents, but crocheting with the neon colors made me almost cross eyed:) crocheting did not succeed, but embroidering with it was fine.


the stitch pattern gives the blanket a very comfortable feeling. it feels really good and i become attached to it already. i had actually want it slightly bigger, but then it would be too heavy for my washing machine.

someone asked me how i’ve made this blanket and therefore i will write a global description of it later this week here on my blog.

for now i hope you like the pictures!

have a lovely week!

  7. The brights really give it an extra touch. I don’t think the pattern is “weird” at all; I think that bar really leads the eye and adds something more unexpected!
