Stash-Busting 'Attack the 'Block' Crochet Blanket (Free Pattern)

Posted by on


In Craft for the Soul: How to Get the Most Out of Your Creative Life, Pip Lincolne discusses how she uses crafts to focus on goals and achieve happiness.
"We can benefit from relaxing into things and going with the flow sometimes," Lincolne explains. "But overall goal-setting is really important. Your goals might be big and loose, like ‘Be happy’, or they might be smaller, like ‘Remember to eat breakfast.’ Perhaps they’re precise: ‘Become a brain surgeon.’ Nice. Goals are good."
This crocheted blanket pattern, featured in "Craft for the Soul," helps you both get into a flow state and set goals.

stitch in the row below. Each stitch has two loops – you only
want to crochet through the back one. Do this all the way along
the row, then chain two and turn.
D. Repeat until you have 12 rows. They’ll be lovely and textured and
neat. Go you!

Step 2

Make 24 rectangles.
Sew them into rows of three with neat whipstitches.
Then sew these rows together, matching joins and edges
neatly. Weave in any loose threads with a yarn needle.
Marvel at your gorgeous work and get cosy!
Note: You could make this in three strips and change colour as you
go – but I like the hand-sewn, patchy effect of having individual
