Crochet Harlequin Blanket #4

I seem to be on a bit of a roll recently and have a finished blanket to show for it!  This is another Harlequin blanket in a lovely cool colours.  I like how this one turned out.  I think these diamond blankets would make good cot blankets and have tried to make them around that size, although I don't have a cot in the house anymore to test them out!

This one was made using the tapestry crochet technique again, I really love crocheting this way! 
So heres a little bit of info if anyone is interested,  the yarn I used and the colours:

Loyal DK:
Spearmint 915
Mid green 928
Teal green 936
Duck egg blue 945
Pale blue green 932
Aqua 931
Mid blue 924
dark grey 905 

Lime 408

BabyWool 8ply:
Light aqua 456

Some colours I used for one row and some I repeated for a bit of balance.
( These are some of the wools I stock in my shop)

Anyway, on to the next thing now.  I think I'd like to make another skinny stripe blanket, I have some colours picked out that I think would look great all striped together.  We'll see.  Or these blues and greens would be good for a skinny stripe too.  Hmmmm......

Have you finished anything recently?
What are you making now?



  1. I love it! I am about to knit a jumper for my baby

  2. Love everything about this blanket, Julie. The pattern, the size, the colours ... scrumptious!
    I'm finishing one item at a time, rather than thinking I can juggle lots, so for me, it's a mixed stitch granny squares blanket for my youngest. Ciao! Trudy x

  3. I am doing some English paper piecing patchwork at the moment! I have been doing quite a lot of crochet so I am giving my sore elbow a rest! Love your blankets! :)

  4. Olá amiga, passando para lhe deixar um carinho, e já estou te seguindo,beijokas

    Amigo é coisa para se guardar Debaixo de sete chaves
    Dentro do coração
    Assim falava a canção que na América ouvi
    Mas quem cantava chorou Ao ver o seu amigo partir
    Mas quem ficou, no pensamento voou
    Com seu canto que o outro lembrou
    E quem voou, no pensamento ficou Com a lembrança que o outro cantou
    Amigo é coisa para se guardar No lado esquerdo do peito
    Mesmo que o tempo e a distância digam "não"
    Mesmo esquecendo a canção
    O que importa é ouvir
    A voz que vem do coração
    Pois seja o que vier,
    venha o que vier Qualquer dia,
    amigo, eu volto
    A te encontrar
    Qualquer dia, amigo, a gente vai se encontrar.

    Liebe Grüße Heike

  6. I love your harlequin blankets loving these cool colours ♡

  7. Oh Jules, you've done it again - another Jules classic, I absolutely love it ! It looks like it has such a lovely weight to it.
    I still haven't tried this method of crochet - but I'm going to have to give it a try soon I think.
    Have a lovely day,
    Kate x

  8. My favourite colours. I would make one big enough to cover my antique dining room table to stop the sun from bleaching it through the window, that would be the ideal use for me. I am getting ready to post my mandala to Attic 24. Jo x

  9. Lovely Jules! They are very pretty indeed in all of their different colour guises. I have been making crochet strawberries - now I can't seem to stop!! xx

  10. super pretty, love the colors!! i have just started my very first blanket following your mixed stripey blanket instructions, really exciting!

  11. Gorgeous! The colour scheme reminds me of beautiful lakes. Very dreamy.

    Have a super week!

  12. It is beautiful! I have two ongoing knitting projects (sweater for me, and a shawl for my mother), but I have a friend who got a baby four days ago, and I would like to make something for the new little girl!

  13. Lovely. I must google this pattern and see how it is done.

  14. Lovely colours! All your work is beautiful ! I have knitted a hat and now back to working on a little doll. And in between I am working on your CAL blanket, I am about half way :)

  15. Beautiful! I love the style and color scheme. I'm currently working on my first blanket in ages. I think I'll keep mine cot sized too... great idea!

  16. Love the colors. Have been making prayer shawls working through my doll clothes slump. Have to get back to finishing my doll donations though. While it may only be June, that November deadline always seems to be an issue if I'm not working on them during the summer.

  17. I really love the afghan! And, oh, that color scheme! All of my favorite colors wrapped up into one cuddly afghan!

  18. It's really nice looking - I love it. :)

  19. it's stunning! kudos! I love it!!

  20. Julie, the harlequin blanket turned out lovely. What a unique design. I will have to give it a try. How many skeins of yarn did you use for each color? I just finished my stripey blanket with the rolled edges that was inspired by yours.

  21. i love tapestry crochet, you were the one that introduced me to it. Love this blanket, BUT, i must be doing something wrong, as my edges on my patterns within the crochet are not as neat as yours, how DO YOU do it ? In total awe, well done you x

  22. It's beautiful, I love it. :)

  23. Oh it's beautiful!!! I love the cool colors, It also reminds me I have yet to try my hand at those dish cloths, that may be my next project, right now I'm working on a ripple in the round in pink, green and white to use as a table cloth for a round table I keep on my screened porch.Have a great day!

  24. Lovely! I'm trying hard to finish a stripey crochet cushion at the moment.


  25. These harlequins are just so charming! I love the shades of this one! Chrissie x

  26. I love your harlequin blankets and now that I've dragged out the crochet for the winter, I'm going to give it a go. I just have to finish a couple of other projects first.

  27. Another masterful, perfect piece of artwork, well done you. Keep it coming, your work is so inspirational.


  28. I love the colors. They really remind me of the sea and the beach. I have to try tapestry crochet for myself. Can't be that hard...I already looked at your tutorial. Maybe I find time on the weekend to try it! Lovely blog, by the way! :)

  29. The diamond pattern is lovely and your colour selection is perfect. x

  30. Julie you are so creative. I love your work especially your tapestry crochet. You have inspired me to do some tapestry crochet of my own. I have completed a few tapestry crochet projects and am actually working on a harlequin blanket -which I love! The possibilities are endless ! Julie you have brought this type of crochet to my attention and I thank you. Helen

  31. ..gorgeous blanket, I really must have ago at making a harlequin one.. love the colour choices too.x

  32. Wow, that really looks great!!

  33. It's awesome Julie! I was looking for ideas for a baby blanket so I'll have a look and see whether this is within my skills range because it's completely different to anything I've made before :-)

  34. Dear Julie, it´s beautiful patern and colors too........have a nice days. :-)

  35. aawooo,, soo beautiful, I am going to try it, is it HDC stitch?

  36. This is so nice, the colours would make this ideal for a boy. I need to try this technique.
