My friend Katie from The Handcrafted Collective, loved my Fan Whirl scarf/cowl and asked me if I could make a blanket in the same design for her new baby. Of course I jumped at the privilege! I loved making the Fan Whirl and was eager to have a reason to turn it into a square so that it became more versatile. So now you have my fan Square.
This is a very calming pattern to make. The blanket can be adjusted to any size that you desire. I have made it with a Stenli muffin cake and a 3.5mm hook, but you can use any yarn of your choice.
If using the Stenli, the finished size is approx 150cm on each side.
Stitches used (US terms) are double crochet, 2double crochet together, chains and single crochet.
Pattern contains both US and UK terms, colour coding to make it easy to follow the repeats and has some picture guides too.
I taught myself to crochet in August 2016 in honour of my Grannie, Mabel Eileen. I have fallen in love with crochet and I’m passionate about creating new things, adapting patterns to make them unique to me and I’m venturing out into the world by creating my own patterns too. This shop is to further honour my Grannie and share my love of crochet with as many people as possible by making patterns and crochet items available to everyone.
I hope you’ll follow me on this journey…and join me in my mission to bring a unique and modern vibe to the world of crochet. I have a vision to lead others into learning the craft and to encourage them to bring their own style into the items they make. I will do this by providing versatile patterns, that I love and that represent me and my unique, yet elegant and timeless style.
