I am beyond excited with my latest crochet pattern, the Deerly Beloved Blanket!

The Deerly Beloved Blanket is a unique design, full of rich texture. It features the popular deer silhouette that  gives you that “warmth of home” or a “weekend at the cabin” feel. This blanket is a show stopper that everyone is going to love.

The design of the blanket features a detailed and intricate frame that has twisting cables and an eye catching pattern. Likewise, the corner piece has a touch of whimsical charm in a circle pattern that also features textured raised cables.

What Yarn Was Used?

I have been in love with Lion Brand Heartland yarn and found the Grand Canyon color to be the perfect weight and color for the Deerly Beloved Blanket. Pairing it with Caron Simply Soft in White for the background resulted in the ideal look. The richness in the frame of the blanket is equally important as the striking white mat and perfectly placed silhouette of a majestic deer.

The details of the pattern are explained in detail however, to assist you along your way, I have created a video tutorial that is linked in the pattern. The video will walk you through the panels step by step.

The main silhouette panel has multiple formats for you to choose from. A chart, or graph, is included to help create the fish silhouette. At the end of the pattern the graph has been enlarged so you can print it off on 4 pages and tape together for a larger format to follow.

However, If you are not familiar with crocheting from a graph, a supplement has been added to the pattern. The supplement is a written form of the graph and is explained in detail, but essentially, it states how many stitches in each color to work. This piece of the pattern can also be a good way to double check your work.

    I really love your video! Is there , by chance, a lefthanded version? I can understand the righthanded one, but would love your videos lefthanded as well. I have been crocheting for aboUT 45 years and am always looking for new textures. I really want to try this one someday. ?

      Terri, I don’t have left handed videos at this time, sorry.

    I am having the hardest time with the panels. I have followed the pattern and video 4 or 5 times and I always end up with stitches left at the end of this first part of the video. its making me crazy

    1. SweetPotato3

      Send me an email and I’m happy to help 🙂

    I’m so excited to try this for my hubby. I’ve made afghans for all my kids and grands. Now it’s his turn.

    Do you have a video for the border rounds? The panels went fine and so did the chart but I can’t understand where the hdc stitches go or from which direction I’m to insert the hook on the second row of the border before attaching the side panels. I’ve tried multiple times but it just doesn’t look right no matter what I do.

      Go ahead and send me an email and I will help you out.

        i’m having the same problem. I’m not understanding how this border works. Could you please help

        1. SweetPotato3

          Did you watch the video tutorial? If you watch that and follow the pattern it should be the most help. If you are still having troubles send me an email and I’ll do my best to help you out.

    This may sound crazy -i bpught thos pattern tomake for my husband for Christmas -ihave been trying for six weeks just to do the graph and keep ending up with the worlds oddest looking buck. Ihave frogged it so many times-i have years of crochet experience but i just can’t seem to figure out the graph properly -is there a chance you have a video or counts for the graph as enlarging the pattern distorted the graph-i even tried redoing the graph. I just don’t know why it’s not working for me and any advice or suggestions are appreciated. Thank you

    I really love this pattern. The blanket is so beautiful. I am glad there are crafty people out there that make patterns like this come to life. Amazing!!!!

  8. Ashley Neumann

    Beautiful design! The panels and corners were challenging but so rewarding! I am wondering how many you chained when turning on the main graph part? Thank you so much for such a great pattern!

    1. SweetPotato3

      Hi Ashley, I recommend working a foundation hdc row instead of a beginning chain. It just make the entire panel have an equal stretch, there is a link in the pattern for how to do the foundation stitches. So glad you have enjoyed the panels, you will be so excited to sew it all together, I would love to see a photo of your finished blanket!

    Hi I’m also having some trouble with the main border is there a video I could watch?

    1. SweetPotato3

      Jennifer, I don’t have a video for this part. Send me an email and I’d be happy to help you out 🙂

  10. Olga Patterson

    I purchased the blanket pattern but I don’t understand how you did the deer head. Do you have a video on that part?

    1. SweetPotato3

      If you are a part of my crochet & conversations group, I do have a video in there where I show how to change colors and work from a graph. Here is a link to join, if you do, just ask the question in the group and we will get you tagged in the video 🙂
