Crochet Mood Blanket 2014 - Week 1

Hello everyone! So far my progress in the crochet mood blanket is 4 rounds of purple and a round of cream. I am going to add more every week, next addition will be tomorrow since the 8th January is the beginning of the second week of 2014. Does that make sense? For those who haven't read about the crochet mood blanket, the details are on my first post right here.


I finally settled on what colours will represent my moods, and I kept it very simple as I didn't want the finished blanket being too sore on the eyes. 

Purple - Happiness
Blue - Calm
Green - Refreshed
Yellow- Excited
Orange - Creative
Pink - Loved
Red - Extremely Emotional (Anger/PMS)
Grey - Meh

The only thing I am still undecided on, is whether to do 52 small squares bordered by cream which could look something like.....



Or make a giant granny square blanket by adding each week onto my square above to make something like this...



Which one do you think I should follow for inspiration?

I am posting my progress every Tuesday with a Mr Linky, so if you want to share your progress every week on your blog...here is the place to do it!! Can you please share this, so people know they can link their blogs here in future, I would appreciate it very much!

  1. I'd stick with small squares and join em together afterwards; if you go down the giant granny route you'll end up having to do ever increasing amounts of crochet for each week!

  2. I'd have said the giant granny square but Tink does have a point about how you'll end up doing more and more crochet each week. What about 1 giant granny square for each month? So you'll have 12 big squares but none of them get so big they take forever

  3. Definitely the small square, bordered with the cream. That's my favourite.
    Will be linking up with you sometime today with my Mood Blanket progress, really excited and inspired by this challenge :)

  4. Small squares - you don't want to be having a Red Week during holiday stress times next December and having to crochet a massive square! ;-) I really look forward to seeing this project develop! Chrissie x

  5. I would also stick to small squares. Fully agree with Chrissie no massive red week(s) during holiday stress time in December. Looking forward to how your blanket will turn out in the end! :) San xx

  6. Go for the small squares. The variety of your colors sound great.

  7. I like the big one with a row or two of each mood colour per week. It might take a little longer each round but you won't have all the joining to do :)

  8. I love that blanket with the small squares! The cream border makes it look very soft and pretty. I'm having fun seeing all of these mood blankets around the internet :)

  10. My favorite is the mainly cream one bordered one. I love that you can see all the different colours

  11. Both are awesome - but i think Loopsan hit the best reason, you don't want to be crocheting the largest round right around christmas (but would you also want to be seaming all around christmas?)
    Now I'm back to liking both of them. It's making me wish I had used this idea rather than just doing a blanket based on whatever colour I feel like crocheting with at the time.

  12. I realise that this is where I meant to post that it was a good idea! I personally like the small square idea. All those little colourful squares are so cheerful. :)

  13. I also like the Granny Tiles (u have seen what I am doing) - I was also a bit worried about the blanket hurting the eyes! - I think that using a neutral to separate the colours whatever you do will certainly make it more pleasing to look at!
