All Bundled Up Legacy Blanket

It’s almost Fall, ya’ll!  I don’t know about you but I am looking forward to a little less humidity and some cooler days ahead.

For this month’s Legacy Blanket pattern, I have teamed up with Shelly from Daisy Stitch Co to offer you a fun fall blanket using some of her beautiful hand dyed yarn. This yarn is so soft and dreamy I know you are going to love it! Shelly has also put together a kit so you can purchase all the yarn you need to make your own All Bundled Up Blanket as well (the kit is enough yarn to create the blanket size for this pattern.  If you would like to create a larger size blanket, I suggest purchasing 2 kits 😉).

If you don’t know the story and mission behind our Legacy Blankets, I encourage you to CLICK HERE to read more.  During this time when so many people are not gathering together, our makers are still creating blankets at home and planning to give them away when they can.

Assembly:

Now it’s time to assemble our blanket.  Take all (25) squares and lay them out like this chart:

Daisy Stitch Co Blanket Layout

Once you have all your squares laid out, place your triangles at the end of each coordinating color row. (one navy triangle on each end of the navy row, one mauve triangle on each end of the mauve row, and so on…)

How to connect your squares/ triangles:

For this blanket I have used the mattress stitch to connect all of my squares and triangles.  This method uses less yarn and allows you to have more leftover for your tassels.

Heart Hook Home has a great video showing you just how to create the mattress stitch when connecting crochet granny squares.

How to create your border:

Once you have connected all of the squares and triangles you can also create a border on each side of the two straight edges of your blanket for a finished look.  This is completely up to you!  I did a simple slip stitch border, so it didn’t show where each of my squares connected.

Finish off and weave in remaining ends.

How to create the tassels:

Depending on the amount of yarn you have remaining of each color, you can choose to do solid or multi color tassels.  You will need a total of (10) tassels.  I had enough left over to use (15) strips for each tassel.  You can use more or less depending on how much yarn you have.

This is a great video I saved from YouTube that will show you how to make these easy tassels! 🙂
