My Blanket Stack

Good Vibes Blanket: Huge Tropical flower motif meets color-block linen stitch

You can finally meet the fourth Relaxghan of this popular series of free blanket patterns! The Good Vibes blanket crochet pattern is nearly done (Update: here is the pattern link!), but in the meantime, I thought I’d share the FO photographs!

Good Vibes Blanket Info

Color inspiration

Bold blocks of color and tropical designs were my inspiration for this piece. I came across an image on Instagram posted by @designsponge which completely drew me in. Instantly I imagined a blanket, with a color-block center portion and big dramatic floral motifs on either side. It was so crazy it just might work. I always say it: I see a blanket everywhere I look. It’s true!

My goal for the Relaxghan Series is to use up yarn remnants to lighten my stash up a bit and cut down on purchasing brand new yarn. I happen to have a stash of Scheepjes Colour Crafter and Velvet, but I have some nearly full balls and many small balls, so I felt like this would be perfect for my project since there are motifs mixed with large chunks of color in the middle.

My favorite part about this motif is that popcorn round that looks like it’s levitating there… I worked over the chain spaces completely on the following round, so it makes the popcorns… well… pop! I also did that round in Colour Crafter Velvet, which is the dappled, marled looking version of Colour Crafter. This Velvet yarn is echoed in the center linen st panel. I cannot get these petally motifs out of my system! Good Vibes crosses this stately motif with some very bright tropical colors with a stunning result.

Do you think you can see the inspiration picture in my design? The color block center, and the tropical motifs on either side? I really thought this one was true to the inspo. If anything, I hope you’re getting some Good Vibes from it! 🙂
