Temperature Blanket Stitch Pattern
With so many options of stitches for your blanket you will want to consider a few things. To keep your blanket from getting too long and still recording all 365 days, you will want to consider a shorter stitch. Here are some suggestions of great stitches for your temperature blanket.
If you prefer to work something other than straight lines you could use one of the following techniques.
- corner to corner
- mini squares (one square for each day)
- monthly ‘scarf’ joined together at end
For a project of this size you are going to need a large storage container. I suggest getting a large bag (I love the $1 ones in the checkout line at TJ Maxx) or a plastic storage bin.
Keeping all of your yarn for this project and your hook will be crucial. If you are doing a pattern that requires multiple pieces having a storage bin will be a big help along the way.
