One of my favorite parts of celebrating the holidays is preparing for my temperature blanket. By Christmas, I have my yarn prepped, the pattern picked, and my hooks standing by for the first stitch. Get prepared to knit or crochet your temperature blanket with the ideas in this post.
4 PRO TIPS
- Temperature blankets don’t need to be from January-December of the coming year. Use any 365 day time frame that you’d like. Some blanket ideas chronicle the first year of marriage, the first year of a new baby, or from one birthday to the next. Personalize your blanket how you want.
- Include a marker either in your notions pouch or in the pattern itself. If you get behind on your blanket, having a marker will help you figure out where you left off. I like to keep a stitch marker in my bag and make note of what day the marked stitch or row represents. I’ve also added a white stripe or accent in my blanket to represent the first day of a month.
- You have more options than straight rows. Classic temperature blankets are worked in basic stitches with a full row representing one day. Consider a corner 2 corner blanket, chevrons, or granny squares to shake things up.
- Pick a pattern that you love, even if it’s simple. The best temperature blanket patterns I’ve seen are pretty basic, allowing the yarns to really shine. Try to find a pattern that you can commit to that won’t get too mundane over the course of a year.
