Polka-dot blanket

February 2, 2009

I’ve been obsessively making these little 5 1/2″ crocheted circles.  I’ve just learned to crochet, and it’s SO addictive to make circles!! It’s so fast, and you use up little scraps of yarn, and it is a great way to use up all the odds and ends of hand-spun that have been piling up on my desk.

Circles are so satisfying and beautiful!  These are all started with single crochet, and continue with double crochet, and finished with a round of single crochet.  I’ve got 39 circles done so far, and I think I need at least 88, so I’m not quite to half.  And I really have no idea how I’m going to join them all together, but I’ll get to that eventually!!  Probably with black yarn.  Maybe with little tiny intermediary circles?  It’s hard to say now.

    I would really love to know how you are going to join them together because I am trying to make a Polka dot blanket for my Little sister in law and I’ve got all my circles made but I feel completely lost on how to join them all together. Everything I try just ends up looking messy :(

      Hi Tyla, I didn’t really find any good way to connect them all together, and the blanket got left back in Canada in a box with a bunch of other unfinished objects when I moved to Scotland! Sorry to not have any brilliant suggestions. But I will be publishing a KNITTED polka-dot blanket in the next 2 weeks, so watch out for that!

    I really like all the color! Seeing all the circles and colors reminds me of folk art – very cool!

    That’s really cool! I found your blog through the Vancouver Knitting Meetup. I don’t think I’ve ever met you at meetup… do you go often?
