Persian Tile Blanket Update

A few weeks ago I started the Persian Tile blanket (check out my post HERE to find out more information about the blanket) and here is what I have gotten done so far, one of each of the motifs, I decided to make one of each that way I could see how each one was put together.



Motif #1 is the Octagon Motif is has 16 rows and measures 11-1/4 inches (28.5 cm) across, this took the longest to create and was fun to do! This motif is very colorful and looks just like a design you would find in a Persian city!  Since this motif is the focal point and makes up most of the blanket I have 15 more to make!


Motif # 2 is the Persian granny square in blues and white and measures 4-1/2 inches (10.5 cm), this is a granny square with a twist, this was easy to make since most of the square is like a basic granny square. I have 8 more to make of these granny squares.


Motif #3 is the Large Persian granny triangle, another blue and white creation, it is 5-3/4 inches
 (14.5 cm)by 3 inches (7.5cm), 11 more to go!


The last motif #4 is the small Persian granny triangle, it is 4-1/2 inches (11cm) by 2-1/4 inches (5.5cm), since this is small it was a little challenging but doable. Since I only have 3 more of these to make, I will be making the rest of these next.


I love this pattern and since it is written in UK terms it is helping me to convert the crochet terms from UK to American crochet terms, this is why it is taking me a little longer than normal, it is very helpful that the pattern has a conversion chart!

I will keep you posted on my progress, has anyone else already completed one of these blankets? Can you share your thoughts and photos?

Keep Crocheting,
Da

  1. Hi!
    I hope you don't mind me commenting, I'm currently making this pattern for my baby niece and got stuck on the large granny triangles. Your photo totally saved me, I realised I'd just started in the wrong spot on the last row. Thanks so much for your awesome pictures, and good luck with it!
    Chloe.
