    I live in Calgary, Alberta where the tempurture ranges from +30C (86F) in the summer to -30C (-22F) in the winter. A much wider tempurature range than this thermoter represents. Do you know if a weather blanket chart exists that accomodates that much of a range of temperatures? Or do I just have to get creative andinvent my own? Thanks

      Diane,
      Mikey has an afghan calculator on the website to help you determine the amount of yarn you need for your projects.

        I’m in North Dakota and I wanted a blanket to show the variation in temperature during each day, as well as snow or rain. I started Jan. 1 with a scale from -21°F to 91°, Lt pink -21° and below
        Peach -11° – -20°
        Lt yellow 0° – -10°
        Lt green 1° – 10°
        Lt blue 11° – 20°
        Lavender 21° – 31°
        Dark purple 32° – 40
        Dark blue 41° – 50°
        Dark green 51° – 60°
        Yellow 61° – 70°
        Orange 71° – 80°
        Red 81° – 90°
        Hot Pink – 91°^^

        We had a day last week with a 47° swing from high to low temps. I use white in the middle for snow, or a blue variegated for rain.
        I keep the high temps on one side and low on the other. So if I start the row with the high temp, the next row will start with the low temp. I only carry one one month at a time with me as I work on it while I care for kids. I will join each month to the next with grey yarn and trim it with either a rainbow yarn or grey.

    I’m starting my first temperature blanket in 2017. I was looking at making a thermometer to show off the colors. I will be adding tags to each color which they represent. I’m using 22 colors in mine as I live in Kansas, USA. We can have upwards of 103 degrees in the summer and the teens in the winter (F). Can’t wait to start here soon!

        Sylvia,
        You can use as many colors as you want and make your temperature range for each color different also.
