Ridgeline Spiral Blanket to crochet
Ridgeline Spiral Blanket is my newest crochet design. This blanket was made with only 2 skeins of Lion Brand Ice Cream yarn with a size J (6 mm) crochet hook. (788 yards of sport weight yarn)
The blanket is worked in a continuous spiral with no joined rounds. Working in the BLO produces a ridge that spirals around the blanket. Work in one color, multiple bands of color, or a yarn with a long color run like I used.
Although this is sized at 33” across as a baby blanket, it can be made any size you wish with any weight of yarn. You will need to choose a hook larger than usually recommended for the yarn.
The same size baby blanket made in worsted weight yarn uses only 600 yards of yarn with a size K (6.5 mm) hook.
The 4 page pattern includes written instructions, two photo tutorials and a crochet chart. The pattern sells for $3.00. You can purchase it through my pattern store on Ravelry. Pattern prices subject to change without notice. Check my Ravelry Store for current pattern prices.
