E-Book: How to Knit a Temperature Blanket
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
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.
