Crochet Flying Geese Baby Blanket

In celebration of Canada 150, Yarnspirations has the Crochet Flying Geese Baby Blanket. This is a small baby blanket that is rectangular.

There is a strip of Tapestry Crochet Work making triangles along the one edge. You will then make the body of the blanket. You will join both sections together with a single crochet using both panels to bring them together.

For the Tapestry Crochet, you cannot see in the sample photograph that the cream colour yarn is carried under the triangle colours. Due to the tightness of the stitches, it’s pretty hidden. I have the sample to double check as I would have expected this to be typical graphghan work. Speaking bluntly, I’m glad it’s Tapestry Crochet verses Graphghan Style. It’s much easier and quicker.

The pattern includes written instructions and a simple diagram of the triangle. You will use tapestry techniques for this. I will include a tutorial below

  1. I can’t find a way to email you offline, and I have looked and looked to make sure I wasn’t telling you something you already know 🙂 but did you know that Stitchboard Pattern Wizard creates free word patterns? https://stitchboard.com/pages/pattern/freePatternWizard.php and look at the section 7

    The only requirement is, I think, that you register. I’d post a snippet if I could. I haven’t started yet but it LOOKS like a good pattern. I want to change the original image a bit and once I do I’ll have a go. I also want to say I thought the video on bobbins and colour change was outstanding. Thanks for all the tips.
