the patchwork blanket has been done for over a week, but here are finally the pictures.
the blanket is made of scarves and shawls and it feels very soft and comfortable, but i don’t think it is very pretty. it was a pleasurable project to do and i can imagine that it’s nice to create a blanket like this of family scarves, that – for example – can function as a warm rug for children to play on.
all the parts i sewed together, with visible stitches because i thought that suited the character of the blanket. before i sewed all the pieces together, i worked a row of half double crochets around some scarves.
next to scarves i also used these sleeves.
first i disconnected the squares and then neatly sewn them back together and i had also two blocks left from this blanket.
then it turned out i ran out of yarn and i bought two new balls.
the edge i kept as simple as possible but i’ve done quite a long time making it, because it took long before i was satisfied with the result.
because the parts of the blanket are made of very different stitch patterns, one part is much looser and more flexible than the other part.
if you like to make a blanket like this, it might be useful to know that it probably won’t be a neatly straight blanket. but i think it will feel comfortable like an old sweater that you love.
project is finished!
hope you will have a lovely weekend!
