A new Blanket

I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of this combination of yarn and linen stitch pattern. And it’s such an easy stitch too. This will be the 5th one that I’ve made.

  • Pattern – from a BluPrint kit purchase several years ago
  • Hook size – I
  • Yarn – Lionbrand Mandala Ombré, colorway Balance
  • Chained 140

  1. The colors in this shawl remind me of walking into the Lilly Pulitzer store with my favorite aunt as a tween. The bright colors combined to create what in my mind is tropical beauty. Love the colors and the memory it brings.

  2. Frosting on cupcakes! That’s what the colors made me think of. That linen stitch gives such great texture.

  3. I love that yarn/pattern combo too. Last winter I made 5 blankets with Mandala Ombre and liked it so much I bought about 7 more colorways (6 skeins each).
    I ended up chaining about 168-172 and getting about 36-39″ width, but I know I crochet “tight” and I should go a size bigger on the hook, but I didn’t on any of those.

  4. This blanket is lovely! Rookie question: How do you know when to end the rows so that the colors line up correctly? I haven’t crocheted in many years.
