Hello everyone, see you again in my another crochet story and pattern to share here! 🙂
As you can see, this is my long overdue project blanket. Why I say it’s long overdue, because.. it got started last year June 2020 and it hasn’t finished yet while I am keeping doing other projects (oh dear.. again and again ha-ha..). Who else is just the same like me? But never mind that, as long as we can finish it at least.
Okay, let’s get to the point. This blanket is made up with V-Stitch only, and it is arranged with so many colors of yarn. Actually, this project was inspired by Anja from Ophelia Talks. You may see her YouTube Channel here how to make crochet the V-Stitch. I love the way she talks and explains things about crochet, tips, yarns and all that. Of course I could not follow 100% of her instruction there as I didn’t use the type of yarn she used, and that is Stylecraft Special DK. But as she said, just use what you have and substitute with other similar colours and yarns. As for me, I used Milk Cotton Yarn because that’s all I have many. It is also soft yarn and suitable for making any kind of comfortable project. Anyhow, you may purchase yarn other supplies such as Deramores, Shopee, Lazada, Spotlight or IceYarn.
When I first started this crochet blanket last June, 2020, I am super excited you know. This V-Stitch pattern is easy to make, friendly beginner and I am so enjoying making it especially in arranging the yarn color. Really excited. A few months later, I started slow down with it because I was quite busy with my crochet workshop sometime in October, 2020. After the workshop settled, I move to another project crochet. There I go.. I abandon it for a while until this year I started thinking about it.. Oh my. I decided to finish it and share it with you how grateful I am (at last ha-ha). If you want to follow the color ordering by Anja, you can go to her website.
For me, I follow whatever yarn color that I have based on this palette:
If you see Anja’s V-Stitch blanket, she made about four rows of each color. She started with single crochet (sc) in US term or double crochet (DC) in UK terms for the foundation. Total number of foundation stitch, begin is multiple of 3 (you may chain, according to your own choice how big is your blanket you would prefer). For me, I did not ch sc, instead I straight started with V-Stitch on first row and I made 5 rows of each color. If I don’t have enough color, then I made less row.
So, here you go. I presented you my V-Stitch Blanket that I named is as V-Stitch Rainbow. Why I chose the rainbow to name it? Rainbows are a beautiful spectacle of colors and vibrancy that brighten the sky after the rain. Our life also is something about it. As someone once quote, “A rainbow is a promise of sunshine after rain. Of calm after storms. Of joy after the sadness. Of peace after pain. Of love after loss”.
I hope you enjoy making this project, with so many yarn colors changing. See you soon in the next crochet project of mine 🙂
