Welcome to yarn station. I wish you a peaceful day and I hope that your days are full of joy, interest, and work. Because you can’t stop! Because as soon as we stop and be lazy, black, dark thoughts immediately attack us, and the longer we spend in mourning, the harder it becomes to rise to the surface. Seasonal depression, I think, worries many of us, and that’s why it’s necessary to wait: a little more, and the sun will gather strength!
Today we want to introduce you to a colorful, beautiful, and cute blanket suitable for spring. Its name is The Whisper of Joy Blanket by Dragana Savkov Bajic. Just what I needed! That’s what makes me happy because I’m a fan of beauty. I am also very glad that this project does not require special skills. I’m not as good at crochet as you are.
“I named this blanket “The Whisper of Joy” because it reminds me of my childhood, of that carefree time when joy was an important part of almost every long, seemingly endless day. So, I tried to bring you at least a little joy with this colorful and easy-to-make blanket pattern.
This blanket is made of 64 granny squares. Each square has only four rows. The squares are joined with single crochet. The border is very simple and has 5 rows.
Skill level: Advanced beginner – Intermediate
The tutorial is written in English using US and UK crochet terms.
Size: 82 cm (32”) x 82 cm (32”), but you can make it in any size simply by increasing or decreasing the number of squares or rows of the blanket.
Gauge: the square measures 10 cm (4”) x 10 cm (4”)
Crochet hook: 4 mm (US – G / 6)
