Boston Love Blanket Square

When I saw this Boston Love Blanket project I immediately wanted to get to work and make a square. The finished blanket is going to the family of one of the Boston Marathon bombing victims. I hope they feel all of the love packed into each stitch.

For my square I decided to finally try this beautiful crochet heart pattern I discovered on Pinterest several months ago. I would love to make a full blanket someday, but I really enjoyed playing with this stitch on a smaller scale. I love the blue/green ombre color scheme too!

Even though one crochet square is a small gesture, I believe handmade creations are one of the best ways to show love. I can’t wait to see all of the squares sewn together for the finished blanket.

I hope you are having a great Monday so far? Did you make a square for this project? I would love to see!

  1. What a wonderful effect. Lovely colours you’ve used :)

    I’m so glad to see this as I crocheted some squares and was concerned they might not be right (http://plainjane66.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/boston.html) Yours is beautiful – the love that has gone into it will shine through. I hope we might get to see some of finished work. Well done x Jane

    So pretty. I made four squares but neglected to take pictures! Two were just garter stitch (nice and squishy), one had a garter stitch border with stockinette in the inside and the fourth was the Massachusetts state square from here: http://www.knittingknonsense.com/massachusettscloth.html

  19. Casey says:

    This looks great! I think a blanket of smaller squares using this stitch joined together would look really amazing!

    reason to do so. There are on only three major GSM network operators in Turkey – Turkcell,
    Vodafone (formerly Telsim), and Avea. As soon as a cellphone contract has dissolved, providers are likely to lock the cell in order to prevent unpaid use.

    Duncan Bannatyne is known for keeping a careful eye on finances and spending, so woe betides anyone pitching for his money that is
    looking to buy huge volumes of stock or products, even though they haven’t identified
    a buyer for them. I spent an entire year searching for the perfect illustrator for Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy.
    Even without the magical undertones, it must have been a pretty nifty sight.
