I decided to make a temperature blanket for this year. How do you make a temperature blanket? You choose colors that reflect different temperature ranges. Then you record the high temperature for each day throughout the year. Crochet one row each day in the correct color. Here is my temperature gauge:
I recommend using a chart to record the temp each day. That way if you can’t crochet a row each day, you can catch up on the weekends.
Here is the Word doc form to customize for your needs: crochet-temperature-blanket-blank.
I chose to do a chevron design for my blanket. Here is the first month!
And here is the finished blanket! My final measurements were 66″ wide and 107″ long.
I also recommend embroidering the year in the corner. So when you get addicted to making these year after year, you can remember which year you made each one.
