As my own 2020 Temperature Blanket drew to a close I found I wasn't ready to say goodbye to it altogether. It's was quite the year - to say the least (and 2021 has continued in the same vein) and knitting this blanket gave me so much comfort and support during some very unsettling times. During the year-long project I have learned a lot and there are definitely a few things I would do differently if I ever did this again.

In essence, this e-book is the resource I wish I had, before I started.

I wanted to create a resource for those who'd like to knit their own Temperature Blanket and this 19 page e-book contains tips, suggestions and resources such as:

  • Working out a temperature scale
  • Yarn choice
  • Estimation of yardage
  • Size and gauge
  • Choosing colours
  • Ideas for construction
Like any big project the idea of starting a Temperature Blanket can seem a little daunting. Decisions on yarn, needles, colours, temperature scales etc - can all seem a little overwhelming. That's why I thought it might be a good idea to do this together as a group project - within a separate group in the Everyday Knitter Mighty Network.

When you purchase the e-book there is a link in the PDF which will take you to the dedicated, private group which, whilst quiet at the minute, will hopefully provide you with a year long source of support and encouragement from others undertaking a Temperature Blanket of their very own.

For this project I used fingering weight yarn with 3.25mm needles, however no yarn recommendations are given here - the choice of yarn/needles used is entirely up to the knitter and the type of year-long project they wish to create.
