The soft gray days have rolled in, and with them my crochet color palette has taken a gentler hue. Typically one with a penchant for bold color combinations, I decided to craft a blanket in the neutral and lovely Wool of the Andes Dove Heather. Its misty tweediness is so apt to usher in autumn.
In order to prevent myself from getting bored working an entire blanket with just one color, I took a sabbatical my typical granny stripe technique and went with a puff/v-stitch combination (thanks to Simple Crocheting) for the body, and a half double crochet border.
It’s quite a lady-like and beautiful effect, yes?
With my cozy new blanket, a delicious book and doodle pad, I am genuinely excited about the wet days ahead. I am beginning to suspect that rainy seasons were created just so I can crochet more!
