tapestry crochet blanket



I have just received my early copies of the latest issue of Inside Crochet and had to share the blanket I have designed inside. I have been meaning to master tapestry crochet - the art of colourwork patterning within crochet - for a while and have been toying with the idea of a geometric triangle pattern. Triangles are everywhere in homewares at the moment and I thought it would be perfect in a blanket for my littlun. So here it is! 
Using Sublime Merino DK, which is beautiful and comes in an array of gorgeous colours, this is my new favourite project, it was a joy to make and snuggly to use - I have to say I have used it more than the littlun! If you haven't had a go at tapestry crochet before, do not fear, the Polygon Blanket is published alongside a straightforward how to guide. If you aren't a subscriber, the issue is on sale in all good newsagents and supermarkets from the 23rd April.

Hi Claire, First of all thank you for sharing your beautiful work. I was thinking of trying such a tapestry crochet pattern myself and would like to know if you have an idea of how much yarn is needed. I imagine you need some more than normal crochet because you have to keep the yarn inside inside the new colour all the way. Can you maybe give me an idea for this kind of yarn (4mm needle)? I need to order online and the best is always to order all at once because of the colour differences... Thank you so much! Diana Dinis

Hi Diana,

I used 13 balls of yarn, 2 of each of 5 colours, and three of the main blue shade used in the edging. The finished blanket is 76 x 85cm.

Hope that helps!
