February has come and gone and I want to take a moment to reflect on the second month of my temperature C2C Make Along 2018. I am using 35 shades of Scheepjes Maxi Sweet Treat, which are 25g balls, but you can just as easily use the bigger Scheepjes Maxi Suger Rush which are 50g. I use a 2.5mm (US 4) hook, but I know that many of you needed to drop a hook size to get your work to look nice.
Scheepjes Suger Rush and Sweet Treat yarn is available from Wool Warehouse (UK/Int), Knotty House (US), Love Crochet (US), Caro’s Atelier (NL) and many other Scheepjes Stockists. Under Resources you find everything for need for the Make Along.

What shall I say about February? I can summarize it in one word; COLD, wait, let me make that two words, VERY COLD! January was warm with greens and even yellows, but February was insanely cold with daytime maximum temperatures below freezing for a few days of the month.
February started out cold which introduced the first deep blue colors in my blanket, half way it was bit warmer again which resulted in the return of green shades, and the last week was really very cold and saw the introduction of new blue colors to the blanket. In my Facebook group It’s all in a Nutshell Crochet Nuts I have been sharing a few extra WIPs, along with many others. So nice to see it grow day by day.
Looking ahead I see that March will bring a bit of warmer weather, which I am really looking forward to. Although I love the blue colors in my blanket I have totally had it with the cold. I want it to be warm again so that I can sit outside and enjoy the sunshine.
How to make your own #C2CMAL2018 blanket
To make your own blanket you need to align temperatures to colors. I have given you an example in my Color Chart C2C Temperature Blanket Make ALong 2018. However, feel free to change the range of the temperatures to better suite your local situation. I have decided to use the maximum temperature registered by the official weather station in my city as the temperature for each day of the year. You can use the Empty Color Chart to register the temperature in your city so that you can keep track of which color goes where. Finally you need the pattern, we are going to keep increasing the diagonal for some time still, so just keep going for the time being.
Small update in the pattern
I have done a small update of the pattern; version 3 corrects an error in stitch count that was in version 2 of the pattern. Version 1 also had an error in stitch count, so hopefully all stitch counts are correct now. These errors originated from the fact that I changed the pattern after writing it up the first time.
I am contemplating if I will change the point at which we start to elongate the blanket. At this point it’s after 120 days (which is the end of April), but possibly I may extend this a bit longer if the blanket is still a bit narrow after 120 days. Will keep you updated on this.
