Fantasy Blanket: the Reveal

(Crochet * Stash-buster)

This is the official reveal of my Fantasy Blanket (in full view), as well as two others, made by my mom and aunt.  I just love that each one is unique and has its own “personality”, but in essence it is the same Fantasy blanket...
Esta es la presentación oficial de mi Manta Fantasía (en vista completa), al igual que otras dos, tejidas por mi madre y mi tía.  Me encanta que cada una tiene su propia personalidad, pero en esencia son la misma “Manta Fantasía”...

a. Fantasy by Ana BC 


Made with medium yarn, in 12 colors.  Small (baby size).




b. Fantasy by Beatriz 




My mom changed the order of the sections, and made the First Section (Stripes) with a "granny" center.  
Mi mamá cambió el orden de las secciones, y el centro de las Franjas la hizo al estilo "granny". 


Color inspiration:  a flannel receiving blanket. 
Inspiración para el colorido: una manta de franela.



c. Fantasy by Chichi




My aunt added an extra stitch pattern: alternating Dc and sc (and the opposite in the next row.
Mi tía añadió otra puntada, que alterna un Punto alto y un punto bajo (y lo opuesto en la siguiente hilera). 



She made a lacier border. 
También hizo un borde diferente, más calado.


Let me know if you make a Fantasy Blanket of your own.  I´d love to see your version.  If you are participating in the Stash-busting Challenge, don´t forget to share it @ Linda’s Link Party.
Si se animan a hacer una Manta Fantasía, me gustaría mucho ver su versión.  Si están participando del reto de Lanas Acumuladas, compartan el enlace y foto @ Linda´s Link Party.

  21. Hi Ana, I hope you are well, its been ages since I had the time to visit my lovely blog friends! It's actually way too late to be visiting now, I will regret it in the morning! But I just wanted to catch up before we go away for 3 weeks. You have been sooooo busy! I love the waistcoat you made for your niece, such a sassy style :) and this blanket is great, I have seen a few of these mixed up stripe blankets and I love the look they make, it is definitely one I am bookmarking for after my ripple has finished ...
    Hope you are well, Em xx

  25. Ana es una manta preciosa, además es una buena idea para combinar diferentes lanas. Yo sigo parada con mis manos, me lancé con las pulseras y ahora no puedo hacer nada.
    Me encanta lo que haces y la manera de compartirlo. A ver si tengo fuerza de voluntad y estoy todo el mes de agosto sin tocar ni una aguja y en septiembre retomo las mantas.
    Un abrazo y sigue con este blog tan estupendo. Saludos a tus familiares que también son creativas.

  26. Ana, I have really enjoyed seeing your colourful fantasy blanket in its various stages, it really is a beautiful dreamy pattern. Its so great to see lots of others joining in the creation of their own combinations - well done for all the inspiration and injections of colour, style and texture all over crochet blogland and beyond!

    1. Wonderful, Monika! Thank you for asking about selling a project made with my free patterns. I have no problem with that! :-) I just ask that people give credit and link it back to Lanas de Ana when posting about it in their blogs and sites. Let me know when you finish it. I'd love to see your version ♥ Ana BC

    1. Hi Zaida. That one was made by my mom, and she used DORA (by Madame Tricote Paris), except for the very pale pink in the waves, which is Super Bebe (Tamm). Are you planning on making one like that? Greetings, Ana BC

  34. Hi

    1. That´s lovely! Can´t wait to see your version.
      My aunt explained that she started with a simple crochet row, all aroud. Then, thee following rows are just * 1 Dc + chain 1*.
      For the last row: (in chain space) 1 sc + 1 ch + 1sc.
      Hope this works :-)
