Over the Christmas break I was checking my Pinterest feed and noticed a thing called a Temperature Blanket. I was intrigued so clicked on the picture and was immediately hooked. I quickly messaged my sister to see if she had heard of this wondrous thing. She hadn’t so we hatched a plan to crochet one each using the same colour palette. She lives in the Northern Hemisphere so her blanket will look different to mine and we will do a comparison at the end to see how they turned out.
We decided on the size, stitch, and colour and will be starting on the 1st May. The idea is you crochet one line of the blanket per day using the colour of wool that corresponds to the temperature where you are on that day.
We are going to be using Stylecraft Special Chunky in the following colours using a 6mm hook:
Silver – 0 – 5 degrees
Cloud Blue – 6 – 9 degrees
Meadow – 10 – 14 degrees
Pale Rose – 15 – 18 degrees
Saffron – 19 – 21 degrees
Pomegranate – 22 – 24 degrees
Plum – 25 – 30 degrees
Emperor – 30+ degrees
I will check back in with updates as to how the blankets are progressing so watch this space!
