What Is a Crochet Temperature Blanket: Crafting a Year in Yarn

A crochet temperature blanket is a unique and creative project that captures the essence of a year through color. Each color in the blanket represents the temperature range for a specific day, creating a visual diary of the year’s climate.

This blog will guide you through everything you need to know to start your own temperature blanket, from understanding its concept to the steps involved in making one.

What Is a Crochet Temperature Blanket?

A crochet temperature blanket is a vibrant and meaningful project that visually represents the temperature changes over a specific period—usually a year—through colors in a blanket. Each color corresponds to a temperature range, making the blanket a chronological temperature record.

How to Crochet a Temperature Blanket

Creating a temperature blanket involves several steps, from planning to execution, ensuring the project is both enjoyable and successful.

Planning Phase

  1. Determining the Scope: Decide if the blanket will represent a calendar year, a specific climate-related event, or another period.
  2. Sourcing Temperature Data: Gather historical temperature data for the chosen period from weather websites, apps, or local meteorological services.
  3. Design Layout: Plan the layout—whether each row represents a day or a larger unit like a week. This will dictate the blanket’s size and the amount of yarn needed.

Crochet Techniques

  1. Starting the Blanket: Begin by crocheting the first row in the color that corresponds to the temperature on your starting date. Most people use simple stitches such as single crochet (SC) or half-double crochet (HDC) to keep the focus on the color pattern.
  2. Daily Crochet Routine: Add one row for each new day’s temperature by referencing your color chart. This routine can be adapted to weekly changes if preferred, using broader stripes.
  3. Joining Techniques: If you prefer not to crochet continuously, you can make individual squares for each day or week and later join them using techniques like whip stitch or slip stitch.
