Temperature Blanket 28 day update

I ran into a couple problems with my blanket early on because I couldn’t get the yarn colors in the brand that I need and I lost track of my temperature chart. I went online a found a monthly temperature report for our region. I began ordering/shopping for yarn. I’ve finally got my stock ready to match whatever temperature Mother Nature Mood is.

I raveled the first rectangles out and started my blanket over again.

I couldn’t find a color chart I was happy with, so I made my own. I chose each color in the way I think it reflects the world, such at 50°F the plants start trying to sprout so I think ‘Spring Green’ fits its quite well. I may make a post later on and explain each color. I just wanted to give you the general idea.

I think the blanket will be pretty interesting when it’s finished. It isn’t going to be very large maybe about 38″x44″ (inches).
I designed the pattern myself. It’s rectangles for 364 days, then on the 365th day I’ll do a double crochet row of the color for that day’s temperature. Then I’ll crochet a border around it and call it finished.

Without further ado, here’s how the temperatures of the first 28 days of January 2019 look:
The Degrees are Fahrenheit.
Each color changes with the range of tens: 30° to 39° is blue, 60° to 69° is lemon and such as that
Yarn is Red Heart 4 ply
I’m joining the rows with ‘Aran’. I plan to do the border in it too.
0° & under, white
10°& teens, Amethyst (it’s more purple than in the photo)
20° Orchid
30° Blue
40° Light Blue
50° Spring Green
60° Lemon
70° Saffron
80° Pumpkin
90° Cherry Red
100° & above, Burgundy

 

I hope you all have a lovely week of sunshine and blue skies.

  1. I love it. What an awesome way to keep a record of the year! You are so creative. I’m not sure what the temperatures are tonight where you live – but where I live, today was a “white yarn” (below zero) day.

  2. Love it so far, E.C.! I’d be quite beautiful and colorful when done, I think.
    I like your interpretation of colors, and would love a future post about your thought process behind it. 🙂

    • Thanks so much Anita,
      I’ll probably put my interpretation of colors in one of my blanket update post. Thanks for the wonderful compliment, I hope you’re right and it looks pretty when it’s finished. 🙂

  3. Love it! I’m hoping to get to my own temperature blanket maybe next year. I have several color schemes I have been considering for years so I’ll have to settle on one of them if I ever do get around to it. I can’t wait to see what yours looks like as the year progresses!
