3 Month Crochet Sky Watch Blanket

Look up and outside and take your own readings of what the sky is reading to you. Choose a time of day to look up or just give an overall impression of the day. From full sun to cloudy to snow, the sky will determine your shades of blue for your new blanket.

Print out 3 copies of the Sky Watch Worksheet and begin to record your daily observations of the sky.

Customize Your Afghan

I have selected colours from the Caron One Pound yarn family. I have left you blank circles if you would like to customize your own colours. If you prefer another yarn, the sizing of height I figured out is 3/4″ high per row.

Crochet a chain as wide as you need. Each daily reading is a row of 1 double crochet. I wouldn’t fasten off at the end of a daily crochet line as the next day could be the same sky observation.

Use the bottom calendar box to record. I have labeled each observation as a letter for your convenience to record.

At the end of 3 months, you blanket will just over a throw size of about 70″ long.

So look up and see the sky and record it into your new blanket.

    I have been thinking about doing it in calender squares and do the blocks for the days with the high, low and weather. And the blank spaces in black. Just trying to work it out.

      My mom and I both did the skywatcher blanket. I haven’t seen hers and she hasn’t seen mine. We have 4 days left and I can’t wait to see the yarn she picked. I’ve had so much fun making this and I know mom mom has enjoyed it as well. It’s a fun project and great end result.
      Thank you for the idea.

    Hi Mikey I love all your videos. I’d like to learn how to read written patterns for some reason I can follow better by watching videos instead.

    Thinking about doing this as a C2C blanket. Should be interesting.

    Thank you for this “Beat the Winter Blahs” idea:)
    I like the combination of colours you chose but could you please list the colour names?
    I have a weird form of colour blindness that makes it difficult for me to differentiate shades of blue or black/dark grays, as well as blue from black shades.
    Thank you.
