Gradient Blankets to keep you warm and cozy

Finally finished the gradient Chevron blankets I started months ago. I made each one in 3 panels then crocheted them together with a contrasting colour. This made it easier and lighter to make especially if you have arthritis or other issues with your hands or arms. The top and bottom panels are the same with the center one a bit different to add interest and make each one unique.

I made my first chevron blanket last year and enjoyed the simplicity and easy to make pattern. The perfect project to make while curled up on the couch watching your favourite movie.

The yarn I used was Tough Love Sock yarn by SweetGeorgia Yarns. I chose 4 colours for each and it took 5 plus some skeins to make a nice lap size blanket. I loved working a gradient effect. I want to make a Christmas theme blanket next. Off this to check out some patterns to try. Sometimes I like to take a break from designing and enjoy making something with someone else’s beautiful pattern.

Elegant Rose Scarves and Hand Warmer Collection Crochet Patterns

A collection of elegant rose inspired designs including 3 styles of scarves and 2 lengths of hand/arm warmers. The Elegant Rose collection is a great addition to any wardrobe and can be made with beautiful neutrals as shown or add colour with the base one colour and the flowers and leaves another. See more information or to purchase on my Etsy store. Etsy store: www.valeriebaberdesigns.etsy.com

For the Elegant Rose Collection I used beautiful yarn from Sweetgeorgia Yarns in the worsted weight yarn. Most other worsted weight yarns will work for this design. Try a hand painted effect with solid coloured roses to pop the floral accent or a beautiful neutral colour as shown for an elegant touch. The inspiration for these designs is a walk through a rose garden enjoying a beautiful warm day and to keep these memories near to warm you on the colder days of winter. The design on the base of the pieces is inspired by the stone tracery of Gothic Architecture of the past on beautiful cathedrals and buildings. These buildings were often embellished with beautiful stone tracery of leaves, flowers and vines. I love adding an architectural essence to my designs.
