The Crochet Study of Geometry is the next study blanket in my (Mikey’s) designs. Scheduled for Summer 2021.
This blanket design is considered an easy level and is 60″ x 60″.
Keeping in line with the concepts that my blanket designs are texture-rich. This design was the 3rd attempt of 3 designs that were written to hit the goals for the summer stitch along.
- Blanket number one required too many colours that ended up with a lot of yarn leftover.
- Blanket two was considered too simplistic and truthfully only took me two days to design.
- Blanket three, this one, took me several weeks to design with an obsessive about of frogging.
Each one of the three designs has been written but not released and will be saved for a rainy day, sort of speak. One will most likely end up in a Crochet Crowd Book in the future.
Daniel pushed me further for this design that I really wanted to go. However, I would regret it if I submitted to you a design where my whole heart wasn’t put into it. The final blanket had 3 attempts to get the blanket to the standard I needed. I was mathematics big time and a many trials and errors. I thought this design was going to be my nemesis in the end.
The first finished prototype was done in just 3 colours but the texture and stitches needed a push. I wasn’t firm on the yarn choice on the first run-through. So the second prototype push was the final colours and final run-through. Teamed up with our testers to get it to be readable.
During the final run-through, one of the colours was really bugging me half to death! I sat on the blanket for a week trying to convince myself that I was okay with where one of the colours ended up. I couldn’t bring myself to push it out as is and frogged back out a section and redid it with a new colour sequence.
The blanket would look amazing as a one-colour piece or splash it with colouring. It’s a multi-textured blanket.
The blanket will have us start at the coffee shop outside of the park. Where we will meet up and begin our walk-through during the stitch along. Passing through botanical gardens, a pond with the band playing on the pontoon to doing some paddle boats to get to the rides inside the park. Eventually having some refreshments and make our way back home.
The entire stitch meandered through pathways to follow it through to the end. It will make sense once you see it.
Pathways and Gardens are the hints for this. Smell the flowers, follow along the established pathways. There are no flowers to sew on but that doesn’t mean you won’t see flowers. There isn’t anything in our video or pattern collection that looks like this. I pushed and did the math to make it work!
Finally, the name of the blanket was affectionately named by Jeanne. I was doing a lot of math trying to get the corners not to pucker! It’s like the geometry wasn’t working. In the end, the geometry was solved. Therefore a lesson in geometry!
