The idea for Tucked In, a collection of crochet afghans designed by everyone here at the office had me reaching for four of my favorite Wool of the Andes Superwash colors and immediately crocheting up a storm of test swatches before we even finished outlining the concept! After the first hour, I knew I wanted to do a mixture of granny squares and granny stripes, all that was left to do was to work out how Brass Heather, White, Clarity and Cadet would work together throughout what would become the Squares + Stripes Blanket.
My favorite part of the pattern, however, is the Brass Heather pop of rich yellow bordering the blanket and in the center of each granny square. It’s such a simple detail that really anchors the rest of the blanket and ties everything together.
This blanket turned out rather large and it would be so easy to adjust the size down to a smaller afghan by taking out two granny squares and then working the granny stripes from the new foundation of squares.
I loved photographing each blanket with the different designers in mind. Each blanket reflects parts of our personalities and crafting sensibilities, I can’t wait for our next group project!
