Crochet Temperature Blanket Chart

High-Low Temperature Blanket Organizer!

 

Temperature blankets are a simple concept but produce many varieties.  We are introducing one of our favorites “High-Low Temperature Blanket” which produces a stunning effect.  The High-Low blanket works in squares where the center of the square is the color of the lowest recorded temperature of the day and the outside of the square become the highest recorded temperature.  This leads to a smoother transition of colors and the variety adds design interest that blooms over the course of the year.

These designs become especially interesting for areas that experience large temperature swings.  Mary Maxim’s corporate headquarters is located in Michigan where it isn’t unusual to begin the day in the 40’s and experiencing 80 or 90-degree temperatures by mid-day.  These color variances will make your temperature blanket more representative of the actual temperatures and stylistically more interesting

I was introduced to the fiber arts like many crafters by my great-grandmother. She was determined that if I ever needed to repair some socks or make myself a sweater then I would know how. Little did she know that it has led to a rather large yarn hoarding addiction and fascination with needles. As a life long crafter I am always learning new techniques and improving my skills.

  • This is the very first temperature chart that actually goes high enough for the desert southwest where I live!! In 2017 we had a 117 F day again – and we have lots of days over 110 F as well.
    Thanks.

    • Hi Monica! Absolutely, We suggest going by block size if you are planning on doing a High-Low. If you are planning on working in rows instead of making squares then you may want to gauge your yarn, some temperature blankets end up being much bigger than what was originally planned.

  • Thanks for your advice. My plan is to do the current year . This way it won’t be overwhelming. The blanket will take shape every week.

  • Gwen, on the pattern placement the are squares that list the month name. What is to be placed there? Thanks Monica

    • Hi Monica, You can do a variety of things for those spaces. You could do a high/low for the month, or a granny square that represents that month, or even a solid color to separate the months. There are tons of options and lots of room for creativity in those spaces.
