Worksheet!!

When I started working on this pattern, I just started with an idea. I needed a way to visualize how it would look so I created the following image on my computer:

I used this picture as my reference while designing the blanket and since it was so useful to me, I decided to create a downloadable worksheet for you to be able to use for your blankets! The worksheet does not have accurate stitch counts so this is only to help you visualize how your blankets will look with the colors you picked. Click here to download the worksheet.

If you choose to share your colored worksheets on social media, please use the following tags so that I can find them and feature them:

Pin It and make it later!

The process of coming up with a new design starts with selecting yarn and colors. I was yarn shopping some time back and I picked up some Scheepjes Cahlista yarn in 4 colors. I started with the idea of trying something new and incorporating all four colors in my design.

Before I started working with this yarn, I wanted to make a scarf with it. When I started experimenting with it, I tried some overlay stitches to make the honeycomb pattern and I loved the texture that I could achieve with it. I then decided to make a blanket instead.

There are two different parts that make up the blanket. I used overlay stitches in both the honeycomb section at the center and the border to achieve the different looks and textures.

I have been snuggling with this blanket on my couch since I’ve made it! ūüôā

While the stitches I have used to make this blanket are not reversible, the blanket looks great at the back too!

I think the yarn plays a huge role in how the blanket looks. I loved working with the Scheepjes Cahlista yarn. The colors are gorgeous and the texture is great!

I am very grateful to all my testers. They did a wonderful job with their blankets! I LOVE each one of them! You can check them out in the projects on Ravelry. Here is how they look:
