I have some exciting news! I’ve collaborated with Lion Brand Yarn on a new C2C (corner-to-corner) crochet project: An owl baby blanket!! So cute, right?! You’ve seen me give a couple sneak peeks of this on Facebook and Instagram but now that I am about halfway through, I’m able to give you a better look at the design. I created the graph in Photoshop and am working hard on writing out very clear instructions. Even beginners will be able to make this blanket! The tutorial will include the printable owl graph, detailed photo tutorials, a written pattern for the color changes, AND a written pattern for the entire graph (I’ve never seen this done before but we are breaking the mold!). The final post and pattern will be available in early November on the Lion Brand Yarn Blog. I will be sure to let you know when it is finished and give you a link to the final post and pattern when it’s ready!
If you want to get prepared and purchase your yarn right now, I am using Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Yarn in these colors: Aqua, Sapphire, Silver Blue, Linen, Terracotta, White, and Black. I won’t have final numbers on skeins until the end. But go ahead and stock up now! Great for a gender neutral baby gift or customize it for a boy or girl. The Vanna’s Choice Yarn line has so many wonderful color options!
If you haven’t tried pixel crochet, this is going to be a great project to start with. I’ve purposely created simple lines that work well with the corner-to-corner (C2C) technique. Tips like how to change colors and carry your yarn up without cutting ends will all be included in the tutorial. A big thank you to Lion Brand Yarn for commissioning this project and providing me the tools to work up this adorable little owl!
Stay tuned for more!
