Free Tunisian heart Motif

1 Jan 2020, the first day of our temperature blanket. A high of 7 degrees Celsius today by they way.


Each day I will record the high temperature at midday in London and create a swatch that will join to the next day's swatch.


This will create a patchwork of swatches and make a unique blanket. I am using Tunisian crochet which is perfect for those who are looking to pick up a new skill and crochet technique as each swatch is easy and quick to complete and is an entry-level pattern.


I am using Drop Paris Cotton yarn for my temperature blanket which you can get at

Purple Sheep yarns.


The free motif pattern can be found on my YouTube channel.


Tomorrow I will post the next video on Tangle Tree Creative's YouTube channel on how each swatch is connected in a no sew method.


Please follow my Facebook and Instagram pages where I will post my swatch each day. Please join me on my journey and post your swatches too using the hashtag #heartmotif


Below is my colour chart and the temperatures in degrees Celsius that they represent. Note: for those of you who work in degrees Fahrenheit, I recommend a range of 5 degrees per colour. For example, your coldest temperature colour (dark purple) could cover the range 14 to 19 degrees Fahrenheit.
