    I love this idea but I have a 10 month old so it’s not really possible. What I decided instead is to record the temperatures for the first year of his life (born April 15, 2015) and make him a temperature blanket based on those and give it to him as a gift when time permits for me to crochet new projects. Right now I’m just trying to finish up ones that were in progress prior to him being born.

    I decided to do corner to corner. 1 square for each month, (this way I will not be crocheting an afghan in July and August, just squares). I will attach them together later on. I love how it is turning out.

      I love that Idea, wish I had thought of it! My blanket is already quite large, with a half crochet stitch it will be 13 feet long!!

    Thank you for answering my questions, but I guess my blanket is going to be based on February temperatures since January is over with.

    Love this idea but I have a hard time with long term projects. I came up with the idea of doing 1 lap afghan a month instead of the whole year. I found a V stitch blanket that was easy to work up and show off the colors well and will be using that. I missed most of Jan so I went back and found all the temps for my area and started Feb as well. Jan is working up nicely and loving the change in colors. I can’t wait to show it off when I get it done and the progress of Feb. With all the craziness in my life I think this is the perfect project for me this year to kill a good amount of my stash and keep with my crocheting without taking away from everything else.

    Why is this called the Temperature Blanket? Is it super thick? I am looking for a heavy blanket to crochet besides the Basket Weave which I have done. Thanks!

      Never mind, I see it has to do with the color. However, I am looking for a thick blanket pattern using Red Heart yarn. I know the single stitch zig zag is and I have made the basket weave as I said. Any other ideas? My son wants a crocheted blanket that is super warm. THanks!!

        The heaviest blanket I have ever made is called Navajo Afghan. Check Ravelry, I’m sure I’ve seen it there. 🙂

    I’m using a mixed stitch pattern I found on Ravelry “Mixed Stitch Stripey Blanket” and 17 colors of yarn. I’ve been uploading to my ravelry account username: “angieshell” and also instagram username” “ourpaintedworld” if anyone is interested in taking a look at what I have so far! This has been a really fun project, I hope I keep up with it throughout the entire year.

    Love this Temperature Blanket, but can’t find how to do Linen Stitch. Do you have instructions on the site ?

    I want to try this blanket, but how many stitches are in the foundation row? I like the concept of the temperatures. Is there a specific pattern for this?
