Morven – a striking new tapestry crochet blanket
Introducing “Morven”, my latest tapestry crochet blanket design, bursting with geometric gorgeousness and sumptuous texture.
The pattern is available now on Etsy, Ravelry and LoveCrafts.
Read on to find out all about it…
The Morven Blanket
Morven is a Scottish name meaning “Big Peak”, reflecting the series of “big peaks”, or triangles, that appear at either end of the blanket.
These “big peaks” are crocheted with tapestry crochet and the central part of the blanket is a lovely relaxing moss stitch section, perfect for some relaxing crochet time. The moss stitch section also gives the blanket a sumptuous texture and fabulous drape.
The Morven blanket is a wonderful gift for a new baby, or increase the size and you’ll have a gorgeous afghan for your home.
The pattern includes full written instructions and explanations of how to do each special technique used in the blanket. There’s also a chart for the tapestry crochet parts, and links to some super handy video tutorials (also provided below).
However, if you have any questions at all, please just send me an email and I’ll be happy to help.
The pattern details
My Morven blanket was made with the following yarn:
Hobbii Rainbow Bamboo (4 ply; 250m / 100g ball; 60% bamboo viscose, 40% cotton)
- 3 balls in Curry (20)
- 1 ball in Natural White (02)
- 1 ball in Ocean Blue (35)
This bamboo-cotton blend is super soft and smooth. It gives great stitch definition in the tapestry crochet sections, and a super drape in the moss stitch section.
You could substitute the yarn for other 4-ply yarns, or go up to a DK yarn or even thicker.
Two hook sizes are required: 2.5 mm & 3 mm.
My finished blanket was quite small, measuring just 66 x 86 cm (it would make a great baby blanket!). However, the size can easily be adjusted to make a bigger blanket and this is explained fully in the pattern. As such, you can use the pattern to make any size blanket you like!
