The Bell of the Fall





I made up the edging.  It’s just a few rounds of sc, then a round of sc, ch 1, sk 1, sc, repeat.  The last round is done in a 3dc shell in ch sp, sc in next ch sp, repeat. Five-dc shell in corners. 


Thank you to Kate for her Orphan Annie Pattern.  I’d link you to it, but I believe she has made some corrections to the pattern since she posted it.  If you want it, I’m sure she’d be happy to give it to you.  Or if she doesn’t mind, I can email it to you.  The name of my finished blanket, Bell of the Fall, is for her.  I giggled out loud when I thought of it this morning.  She is such an inspiration to us all with her beautiful crochet and photography work.

I really enjoyed crocheting this blanket!

Details:  Worsted Weight Acrylic Yarn in various solids and variegated colors (Various Brands but mostly ILTY)

Hook:  Size J

Finished Size:  Approx. 52” x 72”


  1. I would definately work this into my home even though i'm shabby chicy... I might just have to give up a room for prim/country decor just for beauties like this one. Extremely beautiful. Insane!! Love it. Tammy

  2. Oh, humble one. I'm so honored. The name truly is perfect, if I don't say so myself...chuckle-chuckle. This turned out sooooo nicely. Isn't the pattern too fun. It goes so quickly. You know I don't have to tell you what I think about those colors. ADORE EACH and EVERY ONE.

    So, you didn't sleep last night. Me either. I almost Skyped you at 2am but then thought better. Back to D.S. of M. and the border. I'm finishing it up and should have some pics tomorrow to post if the weather cooperates. Heading down into the 20s tonight.

    What's for dinner tonight? You always help me out in a jam. I so, don't want to go shopping today. You know how it is when you are on day 2 of the bad hair after tossing all night. The barettes are out in full force.

    Thanks again for having fun with O.A., you truly are the best friend in blogland.

  31. Hi Pammy! I love reading your blog and had to drop a quick note to ask where I could get this pattern. I turned out so pretty..

  32. So I'm over on Flickr having a look around your Flickr site and saw this blanket and had to come have a look. I've now been over to Kate's and found the pattern in her archives and have saved it down to my PC. I LOVE this! So many pretty colors. There is SO MUCH on your Flickr site that makes me say oooooh and aaaaaah! LOL
