Fixing Torn Crochet Blankets
Poor little Ruby, her beautiful little blanket has been torn. Sarah from Repeat Crafter Me is going to demonstrate how she is going to fix this crochet blanket.
Fixing a torn blanket requires a bit of patience and preserving the stitches with whipstitching techniques. Sarah demonstrates by connecting the loops to prevent the work from unravelling further.
As Sarah says, it’s about trying to match up the stitches. Most times for the issue, it’s trying to fix the same colour of yarn and styling of yarn. That you may have to settle on a substitute.
While it will be fixed, it will never be the same but to a person where the blanket is invaluable, the repair may be the ticket of being devastated to finding the inner peace once again.

Thank you for your prompt response. Your advice is appreciated and I will follow through with your suggestion. Stay safe and healthy!
My mother, who is deceased, crocheted me a blanket many years ago. I took it out of the drawer to use and found the corner is unraveling. I started to cry. I don’t know how to crochet so I don’t know how to fix it. Would you recommend someone who can fix, or would you be able to fix it? Thank you for your kind response.
I would look in your area for a local yarn shop. They should be able to lead you to someone. Or just post to your own social media and ask your friends. There may be someone in your circle that crochets and can help.
