Memphis 2018 Temperature Crochet Blanket

**UPDATE: 1/3/19** I’ve updated all the dates, temps, and colors! I just have yet to complete the blanket, but as soon as I do, I’ll post the picture at the very bottom. In the meantime, thank you to everyone who has visited this post! Let me know if you have any questions and if you try this in your hometown, I would love to see your completed temperature blankets in the comments below! ☺️

About this time every year I see posts about a temperature blanket and I keep telling myself I’m going to do it. I found a card online that showed how to crochet one using Caron Simply Soft yarn. I love this yarn because it’s soft and it’s cheap. Michael’s always has it in stock and I always have a coupon I can use for it. Here’s the chart I found:

I’m going to use a granny stitch for the blanket and here’s a link to a video that shows how to do that:

Granny Stitch Row Tutorial

The blanket should have 365 stitches by the end of the year and I’ll keep up with the temperature here which means I’ll be editing this post pretty regularly. Hopefully, by this time next year, I’ll be able to post the finished product. I guess this will be another New Year’s Resolution! 🙂

  1. Hi, Carol! I actually haven’t yet. Michael’s Arts & Crafts sells Caron Simply Soft, but if it winds up being discontinued (as I’ve run into before), I’ll either look in Walmart (they usually have a ton of discontinued yarn because for whatever reason, people don’t think of Walmart as having yarn) or I’ll just use whatever Caron Simply Soft replaces it with. If it’s not discontinued and Michael’s or Walmart doesn’t have it, I figured I would check here: Does that help?


    1. Thanks so much for your speedy reply. I returned to the Yarnspiration site and saw their Simply Soft Brites category and there I found the Super Duper Yellow.
