Music To My Soul Expansion Pack – 10 Crochet Blanket Patterns

Last year I designed some music blankets for each of my children. I did this to show them how important music is and that whole heartedly encouraged them to continue their love of music. The blankets where a huge hit and I received so many requests for more instruments that I am now releasing a Music to My Soul Expansion Pack!

You got it! It includes 10 popular instruments in the percussions, string and brass groups.

Expansion Pack Music to my soul blankets

Behind the Designs of the Music Blankets

When I designed the original Music to My Soul Blankets I was striving for a modern look to classic instruments. The result was a silhouette of the instrument with the added twist of a split colorway which created a unique, modern and young vibe that has been loved by all generations.

You can see how amazing these blankets turned out in the image below. BUT, please take note that these 3 designs are NOT included in the Expansion Pack. You can find more info about them by clicking HERE.

Instruments Included in the Expansion Pack

As I was deciding which instruments to include in the Expansion Pack, I was looking for the most popular instruments and the ones that had a distinct shape. Looking into all the different instrument groups I decided to include the following:

Percussion:

I included a snare drum in a equally vertical split color block which creates a fun balance to the instrument. A full drum set in a diagonal split helps emphasize the many dimensions and layers of drums.

Percussion Expansion Pack

String:

The string instruments are always a hit, this expansion pack has 3 popular instruments included. The harp is a statement piece and is elegant in just a silhouette, so I kept this design basic with another vertical split silhouette. The electric guitar is bold instrument that wants lots of attention resulting in a double split, eye catching design. Then, there is the banjo, what can I say? Simple is sometimes what speaks volume and I believe this design is perfect for such an upbeat instrument.

String Expansion Pack

Brass:

The Brass Expansion Pack is the larges, there are so many fun, bold and big instruments. It was hard to decide which ones to include. But, I settled on the trumpet, tuba, saxophone, sousaphone and trombone. All the angles where carefully picked to express a vibe ideal to the instrument.

Brass Expansion Pack

The Stitch

Are you looking at these graphs and thinking, “no way am I crocheting a blanket in single crochet!”. Haha, that would be my first thought too. I searched high and low and played with so many stitches to find the right one that aligned perfectly for graph designs. I came up with a fun stitch that works up quick.

Stitch Sampler Music to my souls

The pattern includes photo tutorials on how to work the stitch and how to work the color changes for the graph.

Grandioso Guitar Crochet Blanket Pattern

I have always felt that music is an important part of life. The best way to appreciate music is to play an instrument. Growing up I took piano lessons for 5 years. Now as a Mom, all 3 of my children play an instrument.

When a musician learns to read, play and perform music, they gain mental, cognitive and emotional health benefits that will last throughout their lifetime.

Guitar

Here my son is playing at his first guitar holiday recital. He was so cute and so proud of his performance. I cannot wait to see and hear many more.

Grandioso Guitar Blanket

My guitar player is my 2nd son, he loves trying new songs out and is a great musician. He is a very cheerful kiddo and so I was immediately drawn to the Red Heat Roll with It Melange (color: Paparazzi). Wanting different angles than the violin, I had the silhouette split center of the guitar by to one side of the blanket for a unique look. The blanket is reversible (all the designs are) so the guitar can be on the left or the right side.

The name Grandioso was suggested by, Chasity, as soon as I heard it I knew this had to be the official name. Grandioso is Spanish for “Great” and this just fits this blanket and the kiddo it was designed for.

Grandioso Guitar

The Grandioso Guitar Blanket is a fun, funky, unique, modern and classic blanket with a young vibe to it. However, any generation will love the classic design of the instruments and the music theme.

The blanket is made from the bottom up (this is NOT a C2C).

Music to My Soul Stitch Sample

I love the beautiful transition in the colors of the Red Heart Roll With It Melange yarn. It is a soft yarn and the color changes are natural, there won’t be any huge jumps in color or abrupt changes. It is a beautiful change in colors and specks, the yarn itself reminds me of sock yarn only because of this. The yarn is a worsted #4 weight.

Vibrato Violin Blanket

The Violin was my first design that I crocheted. My oldest son really wanted me to use purple and the Red Heart Roll with It Melange (color: Autograph) was perfect. The name of this blanket is self explained, thanks to Shanan for the suggestion:

vi·bra·to/vəˈbrädō/a rapid, slight variation in pitch in singing or playing some musical instruments, producing a stronger or richer tone.”a clean, light sound without vibrato”

Piano Recital

Here my daughter is playing at her first piano recital, she even composed her own song after only a few months of lessons. She was very nervous (if you couldn’t tell) but played so well.

Piano Pizzazz Blanket

What a fun way to describe the jazzy colors in the Piano blanket (name suggested by Angela)! My daughter is the pianist in our family and saying she is the Pizzazz in the household is an understatement-LOL.

Piano Pizzazz Blanket

The piano blanket has the keys laying along the top or the bottom edge. In my sample photos the piano keys are shown along the bottom of the blanket. However, with no adjustments the keys can lay along the top of the blanket resulting in the keys being at your hands when you pull the blanket over you!

The Piano Pizzazz Blanket is a fun, funky, unique, modern blanket with a young vibe to it. However, any generation will love the classic design of the instruments and the music theme.

The blanket is made from the bottom up (this is NOT a C2C). The piano blanket begins with the details in the keys, this can be a little tricky but is so worth the time. Just be patient and once you finish the first 30 rows, you get to sit back and enjoy a fun stitch that works up quick.

I wanted to emphasize to children how much I love that they all play an instrument. Therefore I combined my crochet skills and came up with the Music to My Soul Blankets.

Music to My Souls

Behind the Designs of the Music Blankets

Whenever I sit down to crochet a new design I research and see what is already out there. I saw many graph piano blankets and even some C2C guitar blankets. However, I wanted something different and needed something completely new. I was in search for a fun, funky, unique, modern and young vibe.

I finally decided on the split silhouette of instruments resulting in that modern twist. Next I knew my kids wouldn’t want traditional colors, therefore the popularity of self striping yarns was a natural pick. I couldn’t be more happy with the results.

Red Heart Roll with It Melange

One of the most difficult parts of this blanket was finding a unique stitch that would work in the graph. It was important to me to work the design from the bottom up and horizontal rows. I finally found a fun, easy and quick stitch that stacks directly on top of the stitch from the prior row. This results in the best graph with nice lines.

Howling Wolf Blanket – Crochet Pattern

The Howling Wolf Blanket is a new individual pattern that coordinates with the rest of the blanket designs in the Interchangeable Wildlife Blanket ebook. All the blanket patterns feature a striking animal silhouette that is framed with a beautiful crochet texture in a frame (border) of the blanket. 

The Howling Wolf blanket was inspired by the lovely bold Native American decor that I love seeing in so many different settings. This blanket will appeal to so many different people though. It will touch everyone on a different level giving them that “warmth of home”, “weekend at the cabin” or “my native land” feel.

Howling  Wolf

The design in the blanket panels features a unique feathering look to the stitches. This is actually a very easy stitch to crochet and you will love the look and feel it creates.

Howling Wolf Side Panel

The corner pieces of the Howling Wolf blanket feature a whimsical look. Resembling a dream catcher or some have said wagon wheel, this cornerstone to your blanket will set off just the right detail to make it pop!  

Howling Wolf Corner Square

About the Pattern

I used Lion Brand Heartland yarn for the rich burnt orange color. I love working with this line of yarn. It is soft, works up nicely, makes your stitches stand out and washes up well. For the white background color it is essential that you either use the same brand and weight of yarn, or use a yarn that has the same WIP (wraps per inch). I used Caron Simply Soft for the background resulting in 2 different yarns that worked well together.  

The main silhouette panel has multiple formats in the pattern for you to choose from. A chart, or graph, is used to crochet the bear silhouette. At the end of the pattern, there is an included enlarged graph, simply print off all 4 pages and tape them together.

howling wolf

If you are unfamiliar with crocheting from a graph then your in luck. A supplement has been added to the pattern to assist you along the way. The supplement is a written form of the graph and is explained in a little more detail. Essentially, it states how many stitches to complete in each color. This supplement can also be used as a way to double check the accuracy of your work.

Interchangeable Wildlife Blankets – Crochet Pattern Bundle

Growing up in one of the most beautiful states, Idaho, I have a deep love of the outdoors. The forests and mountains are where I feel the most relaxed and recharged. Watching wildlife is always so mesmerizing and I wanted to capture that in a handmade crochet blanket.  

A blanket is used to wrap yourself up and keep you cozy and warm, howeder, it can also be displayed across the back of a couch, on a blanket ladder or just draped across a bench. Essentially, it can be turned into a piece of art. No matter what you do with the blanket, these wildlife blankets are a masterpiece. 

Interchangeable Wildlife Blankets

The Interchangeable Wildlife Blanket Bundle is a unique set of crochet patterns. Each blanket features a bold silhouette of a animal found in the forest, the animal stands out against a contrasting background. The wildlife animal is then framed with a tich textured border to finish off your masterpiece.

Why do you call the Wildlife Blankets bundle “interchangeable”?

INTERCHANGEABLE [in-ter-cheyn-juh-buh-l]: adjective

1. capable of being put or used in the place of each other:interchangeable symbols.

2. capable of replacing or changing places with something else:an interchangeable part.

source: https://www.dictionary.com/browse/interchangeable

Each piece of the blankets can be changed out for the same pieces of another blanket. Each pattern is a stand alone pattern, but they are all made the same size so they can be interchanged.

Wildlife Animal Silhouette Information and Options

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

There are 5 different animal silhouettes that you can pick to crochet. Each one is very distinguishable and pops with a bold contrast in colors, therefore, it may be a tough decision. Now choose from a: fish, moose, bear, wolf or deer.

Wildlife Animal Silhouettes

However, If you are not familiar with crocheting from a graph, I have also included a quick written out reference. This is a written form of the graph and is explained in detail with how many stitches in each color to work. This piece of the pattern can also be a good way to double check your work.

Choose one of the Textures Side Panels

Once you have chosen a silhouette you can then pick one of the beautiful textured side panels. These panels are used to frame out the silhouettes, because they run along each side, top and bottom of the blanket creating an astounding look!

Pick a Corner Square

The corner pieces of your blanket can be detailed or simple, however, they all can look very pleasing with any of the panels. The possibilities are endless. Which corner square is your favorite?

I hope you get excited about all the possibilities in designing your own blanket. I need to mention that all these designs (with the exception of the fish on blanket) are available in a book by Leisure Arts. If you have already purchased this book, then you will only need to add the Fish On Blanket to your collection.

Where to get the patterns for the Interchangeable Wildlife Blankets Bundle

I hope you enjoy crocheting these masterpieces and seeing them come to life. As you work all the pieces and seam them together, the result in each step, is a rewarding process. I would love to see your finished blankets, so please share them in my Crochet & Conversations group (info to join is below).

Fish On Blanket – Crochet Pattern

Releasing a new pattern is always a nervous moment because I question whether others will love it as much as I do. As I release the Fish On Blanket today, I am pretty confident this one will be loved by many. I poured so much energy and love into this design that I made for my hubby. 

The Fish On Blanket was designed as a new matching afghan to the entire Wildlife Cables Afghan Book. The striking silhouettes of the animals with an intricate border make designs appeal to many. Anyone who love the great outdoors and wants that “warmth of home” or a “weekend at the cabin” feel will think this blanket is a show stopper.

Fish On Blanket Crochet Pattern

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. It is designed in a circle pattern that features a little more elegant look of maybe a wildflower. Well, that is kind of what I think of as I sit streamside watching my husband fish.

Fish On Side Panels    Fish On Corner Square

About the Pattern

I used Premier Yarn in Christmas Green and White for the Fish On Blanket. I really liked working in this yarn, it gave the blanket a little more of a plush feel than the other wildlife blankets. The bright, but not too bright, color of the Christmas Green was just what I was hoping for and it paired perfectly with the stark white contrast of the silhouette background.

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 you can 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.

Deerly Beloved Blanket – Crochet Pattern

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.
