Collegiate Crafting

Just another WordPress.com site

For all your knitting and crocheting projects. These are the best yarns I have found (so far) but I will continue the search for each perfect collegiate color. *Note, don’t trust the web images, most yarns look significantly different in person.

It’s been a tradition for me to crochet a blanket for my family in their school colors as a high school graduation present. So I thought I’d share my patterns and success with you. Every true college student, alum, or even fan, should have a blanket in their school colors.

Pattern: (2 color school)

Chain 300 with A
Row 1: Single crochet in each chain (300)
Row 2-11: Double crochet in each stitch
Row 12-22: Change to B. Double crochet in each stitch.

Keep alternating between 10 rows of A and 10 rows of B until desired length. Then single crochet with A. Bind off.
