The 4th Week of Crocheting a Weather Blanket is done. Hooray! Here we come to the weekly status report. If you have no idea what this is about, you can read it in the Pattern to Crochet a Weather Blanket nachlesen.
The year has already lost 4 weeks, so we have 48 weeks left. Madness, how fast time passes. But we have already done a lot for this and our weather blanket is growing and thriving. Anyone who loses their lust now can turn it over once as an oversized scarf, because slowly we have come to a stately height. Here, too, the weather is still in white and purple with a few blue blobs in between. The patterns then make it interesting again and so far no row is like the other.
Today there is only 1 ° C and some snow, which does not lie down, but at least snow. So I crochet the snow pattern in white.
The thermometer climbs to 7 ° C and the snow of yesterday becomes the rain of today. Finally, I’m allowed to crochet rain on the snow and decide to stitch for the deeper stitches with purple into white snowflakes. That looks great and makes the new snow row looking diffrent apart from last week.
The temperature climbs further to 11 ° C and the sky is overcast. I crochet this time in blue and the overcast pattern. Is it going to be a slow spring?
It stays at 11 ° C and it remains covered. Somehow the weather god seems to have run out of ideas. Now again in blue the covered pattern with double crochet stitches.
Nothing with spring. Today it is only 7 ° C and it remains cloudy. With this I unpack the purple yarn again and continue to crochet with the covered pattern.
It’s only 7 ° C again, but it’s a bit friendlier than yesterday. It is not sunny, but not completely covered. I need something in between and that would be the “clear” pattern. Now I also notice that this name is a little bit unhappy. It would have to be called “slightly cloudy” and I’ll adjust that a bit. So well, I crochet the slightly cloudy pattern in purple.
The last day of the week is again sad and cloudy with only 7 ° C. I hope it goes up a bit next week and crochet the covered pattern in purple. Slowly I feel like you: I would like a colour change and my mind would inspire better weather too. Let us pray to the weather god!
Let’s get to the usual projection for the Weather Blanket. My blanket now measures 17cm and weighs 364 g. The factor for 28 days is 13 and this results in 221cm and 4732 g for the entire blanket.

My weather blanket looks like a plucked chicken on the edge, because there are still the whirring around all the thread ends. I did not crochet them in, because I think that it always looks a bit unclean with the different patterns. But maybe I´m just a little bit behaving at this point. Now, slowly I’ll have to begin to weave in the thread ends before they become too many. I think it makes sense to consistently do this every 4 weeks, so it does not kill you at the end of the year.
Here comes the next hands-on-task! Write a comment describing the work on your blanket and attach a photo of your blanket! If you are not ready yet, you can do that any time! The following questions could help you: Are you up to date? Did you crochet your thread ends right in, did you already weaved them in or do you have to do that too? What tips do you have for others? If you like you can also send your projection again!
