But thanks to his busy schedule, and the Netflix and PBS web sites, I breezed through the entire show in a matter of weeks, landing me right on schedule to enjoy the Season 3 Finale with the rest of the world. (And no, those of you who watch the show, I’m not talking about the afghan that the midwives made for Chummy… There's probably a better way to figure that out, but I'm not above a little improvisation to get a job done. Because I did not create the original blanket, I do not claim copyright on this pattern.If you have not yet discovered this show, believe me — you want to see it. ) One really fun thing about “Call the Midwife” is its wide array of gorgeous baby blankets. though that is definitely one of the most beautiful! I do, however, have written permission to keep it on my blog from the company that published the original version.
😉 It’s a fun project, one that will keep your brain engaged, and when you’re done you’ll have your very own straight-from-1950s-London baby blanket!
(Well, at least straight-from-the-set-of-a-1950s-London-tv-show.) Have fun! This is a FREE pattern, and by using it, you're agreeing to the following legally-protected conditions. Ch 1; DC in next St (which is part of the Ch 4 from previous row).
Tartans originated in woven wool, but now they are made in many other materials. Tartan is made with alternating bands of coloured (pre-dyed) threads woven as both warp and weft at right angles to each other.
The weft is woven in a simple twill, two over—two under the warp, advancing one thread at each pass.
This forms visible diagonal lines where different colours cross, which give the appearance of new colours blended from the original ones.
The resulting blocks of colour repeat vertically and horizontally in a distinctive pattern of squares and lines known as a sett.Please note: There is a version of this blanket floating around that has red stripes with added heart-shaped sections.I’m getting a lot of questions about where that pattern is (I’ve even seen pattern roundups that show that blanket but link directly here).The blanket is begun with a chain in multiples of 16, plus 6 to account for the spacing that occurs at the beginning of every row. I created mine with a light weight, super soft acrylic yarn, and a size G hook, however I think my pattern scaled out larger than the one in the photo.
