Crocheting is quite a consensual art. While you may envision grandmas with giant balls of thread and armed with needles when you think of crochet, the art has actually survived the times, passing from grandmas to daughters and granddaughters. While crochet items are easy to find, yet sometimes expensive to acquire, they are also fairly easy to make yourself once you learn the needlework and find the right pattern.
If you need some baby blanket inspiration for your next project, start here! I love crocheting baby blankets with self-striping yarn for a couple of reasons. It picks the color palette for me!
The Blackberry Salad Striped Baby Blanket pattern was originally written up for a baby sized blanket, but of course, it can work for everything from a dishcloth to a king sized bedspread! Whatever you call it, it all worked out. Starting chain: Row 1: RS Dc in 4th ch from hook.
At the end of a long day at work or running errands, wrapping up in an afghan blanket is comforting. Working on a crochet afghan pattern also happens to be the perfect way to unwind. Crochet is soothing and has been proven to relieve stress.
Crocheting is such a wonderful skill. It is not too difficult to learn and once you do. Now, the hot summer season is over and the weather outside is getting colder and colder.
