Classic Mushroom Pixel Blanket by LunarJadeStyles Classic Mushroom Pixel Blanket by LunarJadeStyles
This is my third pixel blanket.

It took about 60 hours and measures 109cm by 120cm. (It seems to have stretched a bit while I was working on it..)

This blanket was donated to the Desert Bus 5 (2011) craft a long. Money made from this craft goes to a charity called Child's Play.

It ended up selling for $2600.

Please check out these links for more details:

Child's Play: [link]

Extra information about the blanket:
It's crocheted. Completely made up of separated Granny Squares that were whip stitched together into strips and then the strips were whip stitched together.

I cried a bit when I read that you donated it to a charity and they raised so much money with it :tears:

Thank you. So far most of my blankets have gone to charity. I've got one that I'm just finishing up for Desert Bus again this year. :)

Wow way cool! If its not to much trouble to ask, can you send me the patter for the little squares? I have been wanting to make a Bat symbol rug for my room but cant find a good pattern to make the squares.

Its known as a Granny Square. I use the pattern from a book called Happy Hooker. However most are generally the same. I did a quick search and found this one online: [link]

It looks like a pretty good tutorial with a some decent photos. I'd also recommend searching youtube for tutorials if this isn't enough. I know I sometimes work better with seeing it happen.

If you have any other questions feel free to ask, I don't mind sharing and I like helping others out with their own projects when I can.

WOW THANKS SO MUCH! This will really help! Now all I need to figure out is how to make the actual rug... Hahahaha but one step at a time, I will learn to make the little squares first. Thank you so much

I'm trying something like this and i have a question, When you sew the squares together, how do you hide the knots from the end of the yarn used to sew them together? I'm having issues trying to hide the knots and its gotten to the point i'm afraid that I'll have to use fleece for the back to hide it all.

I don't knot anything. I bring the tail end through the seam I make and then I weave it into the stitches in a back and forth pattern. I pull on it a bit to make sure its in there pretty well and then I cut off any excess.

Does that help at all?
