Baseball Blanket


Baseball Field Graph by KatiDCreationsWho does not love baseball?!  Once again my home team (can you guess who it is) has made it to the post season.

Well the story of this Graphafghan starts a few months before this WONDERFUL fact was to be known……
My Cousin who also works as an Umpire, informed the family that they were expecting their first baby (YEAH!!)…during the time that the Post Season would be going on.  I already had my Baseball Bat Cocoon and Baseball Hat that I knew I would be giving them, but I decided I needed to Torture Myself make something to go with it.

However, I really had no clue what to make; until I stumbled across this amazing Facebook Group – ‘Lovin’ Stitches Free Crochet Graphs.  Making a graph afghan was a style of crochet I had never tried….and I love trying new things.  Well after sending a several messages back and forth with The Most Helpful Admin, I was confident that I could make the afghan.

I had recently been introduced to a completely new and different way to crochet – Tunisian Crochet.  After spending a bit of time on Youtube watching Kim Guzman’s videos and doing a bit of practice felt confident in my ability to do this new stitch.

So I set out drawing my graph, on graph paper.  That took forever.  So I bought this nifty little program (that I was informed is not at all intended for the use of crochet) to make the job a bit easier.  Personally I think it worked GREAT!Baseball Field Graph by KatiDCreations
The screen shot is what the pattern you will receive will look like, it was updated a bit after I finished mine.  I did not include the STL as it is a Trademarked image.  Feel free to draw in your own image for your favorite Baseball team.  The PDF consists of 4 pages of graph and 1 page of colors (that you can customize to your own liking)

The pattern is 100×100 with the intention that each colored square equals one stitch of the indicated color.  There are no finished dimensions or gauge for this pattern as it will vary depending on what yarn and size hook you chose to use.  I used Loops and Threads Impeccable yarn and an I hook, which produced a nice lap afghan.
On one small note…make sure, double check and then check again that you have the same Dye Lot!  This project does require several skeins of green.

This is the list of videos I used to make this pattern:

Of course this pattern can also be worked using your traditional Single Crochet.
