Crochet temperature projects are year-long projects full of fun! With careful planning, you will have a beautiful crochet project.
How does making a project over the entire year sound? I am not talking about huge projects that will take a whole year to complete.
Adding row or round a day on your crochet temperature project sounds like great fun! It allows you to record an average daily temperature for the entire year. I personally think it is such a cool idea to let the weather decide what color will be next! The color of the rows depends on the temperature gauge you create at the beginning of the year.
You can then look back and see how the year has gone by in a form of a nice colorful crochet temperature project. Of course, sometimes we do not have time to crochet every single day. However, there are lots of helpful resources on recording the daily average temperature each day. Then you can come back to your project and add a few rows at a time.
Most of the time, the crochet temperature projects record the temperatures of the current year. However, you can also crochet a temperature project that records a special year. This can be a birthday, anniversary, or special achievement year.

Ideal Yarn to use to make a Tempature Pattern Project
I personally prefer using yarn that is very affordable. Brava yarn from WeCrochet is for sure amazing. It’s easy to use, soft, and very very affordable.
But Swish Worsted yarn is also very soft! It is wool yarn. So if you’re allergic, don’t get this one. But if you love wool, this one is great and extremely soft and warm.
11 Beautiful Crochet Temperature Blankets and Other Projects
Most of the time, you hear a lot about crochet temperature blankets. However, this idea is not only limited to blankets.
I have compiled a collection of various crochet temperature project ideas. If crocheting a blanket is not your favorite, there are other projects where you can apply this great idea to.
Firstly, we will look at different ways you can construct a crochet temperature blanket. These blankets are created in different ways and using different stitches.
Secondly, we will explore some different crochet temperature project ideas you can make throughout the year. I have found a great scarf pattern which is a smaller version of a blanket. Crochet shawl is another project you can use as a temperature project. If you enjoy crocheting garments and wearables, I have found a great dress pattern you can make.
Table Runner – Non-Daily Temperature Project
Yes, you can attempt a temperature project without having to do it daily. How about weekly only one row! Yes, it’s doable.
Tunisian Crochet Temperature Blanket
The first crochet temperature project I have chosen is this Tunisian crochet temperature blanket. This blanket is broken down into smaller strips. This prevents it from becoming a huge project which means you can take it with you and crochet on the go too.
The strips of fabric are made using Tunisian simple stitch which is a great beginner stitch. You can either sew the strips together after finishing. However, you can also crochet the strips together as you go so you do not have the big task of sewing them together at the end. You can CLICK HERE for more information about this project.
Crochet Temperature Blanket
You have to be careful when choosing a stitch for your crochet temperature project. Keep in mind that the project will have at least 365 rows to represent each day of the year. This can make for a very large blanket if you choose the wrong stitch.
Smaller stitches like single crochet or moss stitch are preferred so your blanket does not end up super long. Moss stitch is used for this blanket, FOLLOW THIS LINK for the pattern and tutorial.
Another thing to think about is all those pesky ends as you might have to change the color of each row. The above website has some great ideas on how to deal with those ends without having to sew them in.
Corner to Corner Temperature Blanket
The following crochet temperature blanket is worked diagonally. It uses the box stitch worked in the corner to corner technique. It consists of three different parts. The increased part, the middle part which is the same width, and the decreased part.
The pattern clearly splits the blanket into these parts according to the dates. It dives deeper into color choices and yarn amounts so you will have all the necessary details to complete your own blanket. Find all the details on THIS WEBSITE.
Crochet Temperature Scarf Project
If crocheting a large blanket sounds like too much to commit to, you can still join in with the idea. Why not crochet a smaller version of a blanket and make a scarf?
This temperature scarf works much the same as the crochet temperature blanket idea, you just make a much smaller sample. It makes it a more manageable project for you to take with you and complete. You can find more information ON THIS BLOG.
Crochet Granny Square Blanket
This colorful blanket is worked diagonally and joined as you go. And there are no set rules to how you can design and make your blanket.
The blanket uses squares as they are quick and easy to make up. These are a three-round traditional granny squares that literally take 10 minutes or less to make.
You can also mix it up and arrange the squares on rows or make a large square for each month where each round of the square is one day. You can get the free pattern, FIND IT HERE.
Crochet Bohemian Temperature Wrap Project
This is a beautifully large crochet temperature wrap that will be a lovely accessory to wear. The pattern for the wrap is a triangular shape worked in linen stitch, starting from one corner and gradually increasing along the diagonal. January 1st has only one stitch, and December 31st has around 170 stitches.
This makes it manageable as a side project along with other projects during the year. You can opt for a bold rainbow color palette or keep it toned down with more subtle pastel colors. THIS WEBPAGE has the free pattern and instructions.
Crochet Corner Temperature Blanket
The construction of this blanket is slightly different. It’s worked two sides at a time, starting from a corner and working outwards, always forming/staying a square at the end of each row.
For the first six months, you will work one row a day around 2 sides of the square. Then for the last six months of the year, you will work one row a day across one side only to increase the length and make it into a rectangle.
You can get the pattern by CLICKING ON THIS LINK.
Birth Year Temperature Blanket Project
There is a great idea behind this crochet temperature project. Unlike some of the other temperature blanket projects, this one does not record the current temperature. This blanket records the high temperatures of the birth year in the birth city.
There is one little advantage to doing this project. If you fancy crocheting more than one row a day, you will have the temperatures recorded already. That means you can add as many rows as you fancy in a day. You can access the pattern by FOLLOWING THIS LINK.
Crochet Temperature Dress
If you love the idea of making a crochet temperature project but have no use for a blanket, this one is for you. Maybe you live in a warmer climate where blankets and scarves are rarely needed, this temperature dress would be a great alternative.
This is a very basic, mostly unshaped sheath dress with instructions for optional shaping if you prefer a more fitted dress. Find the free pattern HERE.
Row By Row Blanket
Most temperature blankets use colors in a rainbow color spectrum. However, sometimes a rainbow just isn’t going to match the decor of your house. You can also go with a style that would match the aesthetic of your home and the room you intend to use the blanket.
Firstly, by specifically choosing your colors, you can make a classic and classy, but still functional blanket.
Secondly, if you struggle with picking matching colors together, you can pick an item you already have at home as an inspiration. Then choose color combinations as close to the item as possible. CLICK HERE for the free blanket pattern.
