Lumberjack Flannelghan

Recommended Posts

I finally downloaded photos today for the Lumberjack Flannelghan by RoseRed I made for my GS's 20th birthday. GS loves it and it matches his bedroom perfect.

I used a M/ crochet hook and 1 strand each of RHSS Blue and Black yarns (3 skeins each color). After adding a round of sc around each strip, I would have preferred not to since I think it took away from the strips blending together better for the flannel look. Next time. :)

The pattern was very easy to follow with several tips. Thanks RoseRed!

That is so cool looking!  I love how using the 2 colors together give it the look of flannel.  :)

I LOVE that blanket:). You did great job. :clap

Yours is a lot nicer than the one on that picture-pattern.

 

I might try that, I think my granddaughters would like that.

Awe thank all of you. You are so kind.

One thing I forgot to mention, I used a mattress-stitch to join the strips and I probably should have used a whip stitch.

Sigh- oh well. The kid likes it. ( Can you believe- he still has the first baby blanket I made for him!)

Your mattress-stitch looks great!

I do not even know how to do that stitch LOL

I absolutely love it! What shade of blue did you use? How big are each of your squares ?  I see that it is 7 squares wide but how many tall? Just pickin' your brain for a future project  :)

Hi Pam- I used RHSS Blue- E300-886. It's between a medium and a Royal Blue. I don't remember the color number for the Black.

I also made 7 panels 7- 9" squares each. I was going to make it 9 panels long because my grandson is tall, but ,it would have been too heavy since it's 2 strands of yarn.

First of all, I'm wondering how I missed this whole flannelghan phenomenon? Apparently its a pretty popular thing here on the ville and yet this is the first I have ever seen/heard of it. wow. It's gorgeous. I LOVE your color choices and this is definitely in my top 5 of next projects to do!!!

Well that's easy enough to do. Sometimes there's so much going on here, I miss a lot too. The great part about the pattern is the range of color choices to make it masculine, feminine or neutral. Plus it's so easy to follow.

The only problem I had was the two RHSS colors I chose are not the same thickness (weight?) and some squares were a bit longer than others. So joining them was tricky in some spots. Can't wait to see what you choose in colors when you make yours. :)
