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.
