Beautiful Ocean Shell Blanket Ideas

Beautiful SHell Blanket Ideas

Cozy, yet attractive blankets, here we come!

So, as its absolutely dreary outside, I thought we’d look at some lovely, ocean-inspired blankets to help us reminisce of summer beach holidays. Thus here are some gorgeous, shell-stitched blankets in gentle, tropical ocean hues. Undeubtedly, the soothing, smooth color transitions are just the thing the doctor ordered to help soften a dark, sombre fall mood. Indeed, there are few things as serene and calming as a blanket like this, which will be perfect as both for the baby and for yourself. Indeed, one would also be a cherished and prized gift.

Beautiful Shell Blanket

To begin with, here is such a blanket using a gradient yarn. Consequently, the transition from the white to the pale aquamarine/cyan is ever so gradual and placid. Overall, there are no hard contrasts to distract you from the meditative beauty.

However, an ocean shell  blanket can also be made using different yarns of carefully chosen colors, not a pre-made ombre one. Therefore, here is a beautiful blanket that presents gentle color transitions, yet is made 4 distinct colors. In particular, I think the transition is well combined with the alternating textures of the color bands.

I was clicking through for the free pattern ‘beautiful shell blanket’, but there is no link. Only links for all the advertisements.

I made the square with the 4 colors. But how do I do the row to make the edges straight and what about a border and sewing them together. I feel like the pattern isn’t complete.

Yes, I also want to do the beautiful shells blanket but want to know the 4 colors used? Thanks!

Love the beautiful shells blanket. What brand and color yarns did you use?
Thank you!

Your link takes us to the beautiful shells blanket which is done in one piece. I would like the pattern to the blanket that is done in squares. There should be a pattern to tell the square directions, how to join the squares, and the boarder used. This is the pattern I would like, not the one done in one piece.

I have finally got my yarn together for my beautiful sea shell blanket. I’m like everybody else I wanted the blanket that done in blocks like in the pictures. Tha pattern I’ve got is not that pattern. Thanks!
