This free pattern is for a Temperature Blanket, Scarf, or Tabler Runner that you can actually finish. The pattern is for a chevron style pattern with a granny square center. All the yarn is from WeCrochet.
It’s almost the end of the year and many start planning the new year. We’ll reflect and want to remember certain times of our lives. This means we make crochet projects to remember certain events or we want to gift them to others.
That also means, many crocheters either will attempt their first temperature blanket, try a different one or never want to do one again.
Well, I hear you! The hardest part about temperature blankets is to finish them and keep up to crochet a small section in a specific color each day.
Can it be done easier, faster, and more fun?
YES, I can! Let me show you!

What is a Tempature Blanket?
A temperature blanket, traditionally, is a project to crochet one row, round, a geometric shape in a specific color per day, depending on the temperature that day, until the crocheter finishes the project after 365 days.
However, many crocheters give up after a few weeks or months, as something held them back to get it done.
Sometimes, they will use weather websites such as this one to go back and figure out the past temperature of a certain day.
That website can also be very helpful if the blanket is a project for a specific person(s) that celebrates a special event (e.g. birth, wedding, etc) for a specific year and the days within it.
However, these projects still seem very daunting, and many “hate” temperature blankets for that reason.
Will you finish a Temperature Blanket?
Well, that depends on who diligent you will be in crocheting each day on a specific project for an entire year.
But can it be easier done?
Other Temperature Ideas
If you dial back the daily event to the following, you can make the project less tedious:
- average temperature per week
- highest temperature per week
- lowest temperature per week
- average mood per week
- hourly temperature per hour for only one day
- goal tracker for any time frame (e.g. for exercise, weight or measurement, reading a book etc)
There are many other ways to create a “temperature” project, even without using temperatures.
What about Mood or Tracker Crochet Projects?
Yes, as I just in the above list, you can even create mood projects. Using the same color scheme as a temperature project, you could create a mood or tracker project. And they do not need to be done for an entire year unless you wish to. Feel free to make them for a shorter period of time. Like 30 or 90 days, for example.
Here is an example:

Great Patterns to follow for the Temperature Blanket, Table Runner or Scarf:
- for a blanket, may I suggest this Chevron Blanket Pattern or this Baby Blanket Pattern
- for a scarf, I would suggest this Chevron Scarf Pattern
- for a table runner, I would suggest a chevron pattern with a granny square in the center – pattern is below
Temperature Yarn Scale
Chevron Crochet Temperature Table Runner Pattern
R1: 1 atc, ch 2, 2 dc in the same st, 1 dc in next 27 sts, sk 2 st, 1 dc in next 27 sts, 2 dc in the same st, ch 2, 1 dc, turn
Pattern for all other rows:
1 atc, ch 2, skip ch space, 2 dc in the same st, 1 dc in next 27 sts, sk 2 st, 1 dc in next 27 sts, 2 dc in the same st, ch 2, skip ch space, 1 dc, turn
Adjusting the pattern:
If you want to make the pattern thinner or wider in the width (stitches per row), you can adjust the numbers colored above. Make sure the number per row in blue is the same per row. If you add or remove numbers from the blue number add or remove the total from the orange number.
So for example, if you want to make a skinny scarf with this pattern and want the blue number to be 7, then you would remove 40 from 61 and crochet 21 chains to begin the pattern.
How I will be using the table runner pattern for 2022?
I’ll be crocheting the table runner such that one row equals one week with the average temperature for that week. Because we have 52 weeks per year, I’ll have 26 rows on each side with the white square in the center.
Another fun idea: you could split up the chevron in left and right and have one side reflect the lowest temperature per that week and the right the highest temperature. Would that be fun?
Make a Magic ring or ch 4 and make a circle with a sl st
R1: into the circle add: ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, *3 dc, ch 2, repeat from * 2 more times, sl st to the ch 3
R2 – 10: ch 3, 1 dc in ch space, *1 dc in st until ch space, into ch space do the following [2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc], repeat from * 2 more times, then 1 dc in st until ch space, into ch space do the following [2 dc, ch 2] sl st to the ch 3
Then sew the chevron parts to the square, and optionally add tassels.
If you wish you could even use this Traditional Solid Granny Square Pattern.
The below picture shows a Seasonal Table Runner Granny square pattern using the above pattern with different colors to reflect Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter Colors. That pattern will be published soon.
