Hearth Side Blanket

This cozy blanket, woven by our good friend and master weaver Yvonne Stahl, is proof that you can be productive while on your European tour—the squares for this blanket were woven while driving by car to see Europe’s historic sites.

Yarn: Nature Spun from Brown Sheep Yarn.
Weave 68 squares in color 124 Butterscotch
Weave 36 squares in color 104 Grecian Olive
Weave 36 squares in color N93 Latte
Total : 140 squares

Use color 601 (Pepper Black) for joining the squares with crochet

To crochet the border of the squares, start in the corner of a square. Slip stitch to join, chain 3, (skip 4 warp threads and go into the fabric about 2 weft threads, double crochet in that spot). Repeat 8 times on each side of the square. In the corners, chain 3 between the double crochet stitches. Slip stitch to join the first and last stitch, chain one to start a new row. Single crochet around the entire square.

To make the large squares: Take four squares of one color and join them using a simple whip stitch in the back loops of the single crochet border.

Assembly of blanket: 7 rows of 5 large squares in this pattern:
B A C A B
A C A B A
C A B A C
A B A C A
B A C A B
A C A B A
C A B A C

Finish by single crocheting around the entire blanket twice.
The color combinations are endless for this blanket. Have fun!
