Crochet Blanket

True Autumn Day Crochet Throw

Hi there! Here I am presenting you my first project done in the year 2021. If you see all those yarn colors on every row of my project, you would understand that is the color of autumn. I do not know why I love this season though in some part of the world, autumn has already over. But, don’t forget about Australia. For a country like Australia, it has an opposite times to those in the northern hemisphere such as December to February is summer, March to May is autumn, June to August is winter and September to November is spring.

DESIGN INSPIRATION

This project is designed to connect myself with Australia’s autumn season, which their season will be starting sometime in March. So indirectly I made this project because I am connecting myself to the beautiful nature in Australia. Yes of course, some of you must be wondering why I prefer to look something for my crochet ideas from which I never experienced before. For example, an autumn season! Ha-ha.. YA, I know. I am Malaysian. My country doesn’t have this kind of season, not even winter, spring or even summer (except for the hot and rainy weather). As I told you before, I love to imagine things. “Because when you are imagining, you might as well imagine something worthwhile, ” (Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables). So here it is, I made this crochet throw with a very simple stitch or design and of course it is a friendly beginner. Even though the project is aimed for making the throw, but you can turn it into a baby blanket or an adult, according to a gauge or measurement that I stated in here. You can make a little bit different, as well as a little different of yarn colors, just do as you wish.

YARN

For this project I used Milk Cotton Yarn, worsted, DK 5ply, which is produced with 80% of cotton and 20% of fiber milk. You may purchase this kind of yarn through Shopee with variations of colors, or from the Iceyarns, but of course with different price offer. Before you choose to purchase you might want to compare the price according to your own choice. Anyhow, you can also use any kind of yarn you prefer to as long as it is suitable for making a comfortable project just like this.
