Today’s post is a little bit different than all the others, because I decided to focus on specific project, not a stitch. I’ve seen so many stunning versions of Nature’s Walk CAL blankets, that it seemed appropriate to share them with you and give you a little bit of inspiration. I’ve had this project in mind for months now, and I think that after this research I’m ready to try it myself!

Free crochet pattern in both US and UK terms is available on Ravelry. In addition to this, you can find a lot of informations on Sandra’s website Cherry Heart, for example in this post. Grab your crochet hook and let’s dive in!

Subtle color changes of stonewashed yarn are one thing, but artisan yarn is a different story. As you can see in the pictures, squares in this version feature delicate ombre effects and interesting color spots. Crocheter behind Clumsy Craft Lady used natural beige yarn to join all of them together, so that it has true vintage vibes. The squares are lovely, but just look at this scalloped edging!

  1. Hi Kate I am new to making blankets, I was wondering if this blanket would suit 100% rayon yarn. It’s very soft. I was thinking of doing the squares in it and edges in cotton

    1. Hi Kathy! I think it would, but as always, I recommend making one square and just checking it for yourself. When you have it in hands, you’ll be able to tell if it’s not too delicate, shiny, or drapey for your liking. If you’re going to pair it with cotton, make a mock edging on this one square and see how they interact with each other. If the cotton is much stiffer than rayon, it will look odd! Hope it helps and sorry for the late reply 🙂

  2. Hi, Kate, thank you very much for your beautiful blankets!
    I love this kind of patterns – but I should like if you get for me (and for others) the pattern of the white frame, please!
    Have a nice week!



    1. hi Marianne, this is not my pattern – I linked all the details and links in the first part of the article 🙂
