Faded Fantasy Temperature Blanket 2020 Update #3

It has been too long since I showed you my temperature blanket, somehow time has been getting away from me a bit. I am making my Faded Fantasy Temperature Blanket using pretty shades of pink Scheepjes Metropolis yarn.


Faded Fantasy Update #3

The year is starting to draw to a close, and so is my blanket. In July the blanket literally turned a corner, and since then each row has been progressively shorter than the row before. These last few weeks I find it’s easy to keep up with working the rows. I can easily work two or three rows in the time I wait for my son to finish music rehearsal.

There have been some insanely hot days in June and July, and that resulted in thick bands of dark purple in my blanket. Identifying when we had our heat waves is really easy! The past few days we have had cooler weather with rain, so the lighter shades of pink are finding their way back into my blanket.

About Faded Fantasy Temperature Blanket

Have you missed the announcement of my new temperature blanket project, or maybe you are curious? The idea behind my Faded Fantasy Temperature Blanket is to choose a color you love, and then make a fade in that color using 8 shades from light to dark. I have selected 3 fades that I think you might like in shades of pink, blue, and green, but you can also make your own fade. I have named my 3 colorways Precious Pink Fade, Bubbly Blue Fade, and Graceful Green fade. Find all the info on yarn amounts, the free pattern in Dutch and English, and the colorways HERE.

Scheepjes Metropolis yarn is available from Wool Warehouse (Ships International) and Caro’s Atelier (NL/EU) and many other Scheepjes Stockists.

    1. At the start of the project I think about the look I am going for, in this case a fade. So I arrange my colors from light to dark, and connect them to regular temperature intervals, resulting in the distribution given in my temperature chart.


  1. It looks wonderful Esther, I was thinking of making a temperature blanket for next year, so I’m looking forward to see what you come up with next 😍


    1. yes, there are a lot of end to weave in. I usually work on this blanket once a week, and then also work away the tails from that week. This way it stays managable. And sometimes there are like 2 weeks with the same temperature, and then you are lucky because no ends 😀
