Another new start

I’ve made good progress on the Rail Fence and Friendship Star blocks … just a few more blocks to make and while I should have frogged the Feather and Fan scarf and started over with a different pattern, I started a new blanket instead. The scarf is just not draping well with the yarn/needle combination and luckily I haven’t gotten too far with it. I like the pattern so I will try it again later … maybe with some sock yarn.

  • Pattern – Linen Stitch blanket – Pattern came with a BluPrint kit, haven’t been able to find it online.
  • Hook size – I
  • Yarn – Mandala Ombré – colorway Joy

This may be my new favorite yarn and I’m pretty sure I’m going to need an additional skein for this blanket so I ordered more, a lot more! I’ll cross my fingers and hope the dye lot is similar.


  1. I absolutely LOVE the look out linen stitch!! But in crochet? Magic! If only I had that pattern… and actually could remember how to crochet…

  2. I love this new blanket — both the yarn and stitch. I went to Craftsy and typed in Linen Stitch under Knitting and the pattern is there with photographs.

  3. I just realized you were crocheting and not knitting. Well Craftsy also has the linen stitch crochet pattern with photos!

  4. I love the colorway….and the stitch. It looks as though it would take a lot of yarn. I have some Mandalay…I must start something. It is beautiful.

  5. What do you mean by “frogging”? I have done knitting and crochet for years, but I am not familiar with this term. I like your new project.
