Crochet Temperature Blanket Thoughts

I’m attempting to crochet a temperature blanket this year. I’ve been looking at beautiful ones posted online. I’m really impressed with them. I like the idea of making a blanket, adding additions by changing the colors with the temperature of the day.

I designed a pattern for a reasonable size blanket to include all 365 days.
There’s several color charts posted online for the temperatures, but I decided to work up a color chart of my own.

The only year long daily project I’ve ever attempted was many many years ago, on one of my ex-blogs, I challenged myself to post a photo of my yard every day. It got really monotonous, but I managed to do all 365 days. I was happy when the last day of the year arrived and I decided not to ever try another 365 day project again.
However, I hope that crocheting a blanket by matching the colors each day with the temperature, will be something that might hold my interest.

Have you ever took on a project that required daily updates for 365 days?
Was it difficult to keep up the daily additions?

I wish you all success in your projects.

  1. I have been meaning to make a temperature blanket for years but have never gotten around to it. One of those things I will do eventually. Maybe. Lol I do not think I have ever stuck it out with any year long projects/challenges.

    • Hey CW
      I figure when you’re not so busy all the time and have some free time, you will make a beautiful one.
      I’m hoping I can stick it out the whole year, but we shall see.


  2. Never tried a daily project, but I did try an year-long SAL last year – I guess maintaining interest is a bit different there since the expectation of progress is monthly. You’re definitely right about a temperature blanket being more varied than photographing the same location, though, so wish you happy crocheting! 🙂

    • Thanks so much Anita,
      I’ve been tempted to do a SAL, but I’m not brave enough to commit to one. I get sidetracked too easy.
      I think the temperature blanket pattern that I’ve planned will help me stay active on it.
      Thanks for the happy wishes. 🙂

  3. I’ll need to research a temperature blanket. I’ve never heard of the term. Sounds quite a project, EC.

    The only daily challenge I’ve ever completed was NaPoWriMo and that was to write a poem everyday in April. Nearly killed me.

      I wouldn’t even attempt NaPoWriMo. That’s a lot of pressure and creativeness. ~Applause~ Good on you. 😀
      So far the temp blanket is going well. I hope I can keep it going.

  4. Temperature blankets are beautiful! This is a good 365 project. I attempted one many years ago but struggled to maintain record of the temperature in my area. I also couldn’t find resources to research the temperature if I missed a day. I eventually gave up. Good luck and keep us updated on your progress!

    • Hello crochetworksbykris
      Welcome to my blog.
      I lost track of my temperature sheet. I went online and thankfully found a monthly weather thing. I restarted my blanket using theirs. Now I feel more confident that I’ll get further into making this blanket and can catch up when I fall behind.
      Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving me a happy comment.
      I hope you’ll visit again some time.


  5. I tried- my struggle was finding the time to add a row every night
    I think I made it 3 months- I now stare at it in the basement maybe I’ll pick back up March

    • Hi SimplySam,
      Welcome to my blog.
      I understand what you’re saying. I knew that I would burn-out or get distracted if I tried to do a long row each day, so I designed my blanket to be in small rectangle increments each day. So far, so good.
      Thanks for visiting and leaving me a comment.
      I hope you’ll visit again some time soon.
