The “Study of Planet Earth” is a blanket or afghan inspired by the structure of the planet Earth, originating from a circular and radially-textured inner core, through to a hexagonal mantle and crust. It’s a great interpretation of the nature of our planet, and an interesting way to redner it in crochet. This will be a very fun project to make and will result in a 48″ throw or blanket with a dense structure and a nice drape. This project will enable you to learn and practice a number of stitches, which you will be able to adapt to future designs . A link to the free pattern is at the end of the post.
