This is the Linen Stitch blanket that I started on Election night … we may still be waiting for the certification of the election results but the blanket is done. I used a pattern that came with one of my BluPrint kits but you could Google linen stitch crochet blanket and find patterns or look at this post of mine where I linked to a couple patterns.
- Pattern – Linen Stitch Blanket from a Bluprint kit
- Yarn – Mandala Ombré, colorway is Mantra
- Hook size – I
- I used about 5 and 2/3 skeins and my blanket measures about 40 x 46
I love the texture of this stitch!
That is a lovely stitch..crochet just has a different texture and feel to knitting, doesn’t it?
I like crochet for blankets and afghans…hugs from afar…Julierose
Linen stitch in crochet?! Obviously, WAY faster than when knit. It’s gorgeous, Mary!!!
It is gorgeous, the colours and the stitch fit so well. Thanks Mary for sharing this.
Beautiful texture!! And the colors are very soothing. It makes me wish I still did some crocheting.
That is just beautiful!! Those colors are perfect for that stitch.
very pretty indeed…would be great in an ocean cottage….or anywhere to bring the ocean to mind
Very pretty linen stitch blanket. All those stitches! I’m being careful now of doing things with my right hand repeatedly as my arthritis has flared up this year. I did binding on four quilts while watching TV each evening and I think the next few will be machine bound. I do really love this stitch and colors though. I think this one would be a keeper.
I agree with Hedy. This one would be a keeper!
