Retro Vibe

Jag har lääänge tänk att jag en dag måste virka ett överkast och äntligen har jag kommit igång! Hurra! Bestämde mig för att göra ett klassiskt överkast men ville ha något lite extra eller annorlunda. Tillslut blev det denna glada och färggranna retro vibe-ruta som fick äran 🙂 Jag har valt att virka i dubbelt acrylgarn för att få en lite tjockare och fastare struktur samtidigt som det inte blir för tungt.

For long I have been thinking about making a bedspread and now I’m finally on my way! Yay! Decided to make a classic crocheted bedspread but wanted an extra touch to it. Eventually I decided to use the happy colourfull retro vibe square 🙂 I make this bedspread with double acrylic yarn to make it a little bit more thick and sturdy but not to heavy at the same time. 

Nål / Hook: 5.5 mm

Två trådar av / two strands of Scheepjes Colour Crafter

Scheepjes Colour Crafter är ett 100% premium acrylgarn som kommer i 100 g-nystan om 300 m. Det är mycket mjuk och varmt. Mitt garn kommer ifrån Favoritgarner.

Jag vet inte vilken garnåtgång det blir ännu eftersom jag inte är klar ännu / I don’t know the amount of yarn I need yet since I’m not done.

  1. Hello from Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. I am 71 years old this week & I have decided to make all your patterns. You are so generous, talented & creative & take so much time to write them out so precisely & simple to print. I really love the color changes, for example, on the tips of flowers, which make them POP! Thank you so much for the opportunity 2 learn new stitches, shapes & color changes. I appreciate knowing you from far away!

    1. Wow! Thank you so much for this lovely message ❤ This made my day! Im so happy to ba able to inspire, and of course I get even happier when someone takes their time and write to me.

      Thank you again, and I wish you a great day filled with alot of crochet 🙂


  2. Does anyone have a diagram or maybe a stitch count for each round? I’m making a mistake- and I keep rereading and re-doing with no luck. I think my error is in round 3, but I can’t find it. This is so lovely, I’m hopeful to master it…


  3. A great big hello! Thank you so very much for sharing your talent and patterns with others on the internet. It is very generous of you to take your time to carefully write out each pattern and supply us with all the information necessary to make each of your patterns. I am very aware you do not have to do this and cannot express in words how very kind you are to do so. Thank you so much. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. Your work and color combinations are stunning! I will keep checking back for your post about how much yarn you ended up using when you complete this Retro Vibe bedspread you are making. Cheers to you!


    1. Hi Helen, and thank you so much for your kind words. It makes me so happy to read comments like this 🙂
      Im still working on my Retro Vibe bedspread, it has been a little neglected during the summer, but hopefully I will start working on it again during this winter 🙂


  4. This is great! I am making this blanket with the colors of each square based on a specific Grateful Dead poster/postcard from the 1960s! It is for someone who has a collection of posters AND a Yorkie!


      1. Will post a photo when I am finished, but that may be a while! I am trying to discipline myself to work more slowly so that I don’t aggravate my tendonitis!

      2. I have finally finished my “Fillmore Auditorium Poster” version of your afghan pattern! It isn’t very large but it is very colorful, and will serve its purpose! I am happy to send you a couple of photos of it if you let me know how to do that.

        Thanks again for the pattern! I had a lot of fun using it.


  5. Hi! I have been crocheting for around 20 years now. I’ve decided to use this pattern and make my mom a queen size blanket for the first time!
    Do you have a suggestion for the border?


  6. I cannoy get to the pattern. Just keep going in circles trying to get to the pattern. It is beautiful and I would love to try it. Can you send me link to this pattern? Thank you!


  7. I love bright colours ! – and I love squares that are interestingly different. 😀 If I were not right now involved in 2-colour lace briohe, I would start on this.
    So I’ll download the pattern for Ron – that’s Later Ron, right ? [grin]
    Thank you very much !, with regards from Downunder.


  8. Love ALL your patterns. Got issues opening this one, it downloads and opens 1x, the next time I try to open it denies access staying it is DRM protected. I suspect it is the photos?


  9. I finished your pattern using colors from a big collection of Fillmore Auditorium posters and postcards. If you let me know where to send you a photo, I will do so!


  10. This is so lovely! I’m wondering if you have finished, because I would love to know how much yarn to buy! How big is the blanket?
    Thank you!


    1. Hi and thank you!
      Actually, I never finished this blanket (shame on me!), so im sorry to say that i cant help you with yarn amounts. I suggest you buy the colors you want and then make squares, wheight them and then calculate how much more yarn you will need to get the number of squares you want.
      Kind regards,


    2. Hi! I did finish this blanket, once at the size it was written for, and then I added more squares to make it cover the top of a queen-sized mattress. I used worsted-weight wool. Let me know if you are interested, and I can share the amount of wool.


  11. Johanna, I did finish the blanket using a worsted weight yarn and would be happy to share the information, if Johanna is still reading this thread.


  12. Molto bello questo lavoro e stupendo l’accoppiamento dei colori! Peccato non ci sia la traduzione in…italiano. Ho difficoltà a capire i passaggi. Come potrei fare? Sto utilizzando i SOLI abbinamenti per creare una giacca ad una mia nipotina (14 anni) sempre fondo nero, MA con un disegno Granny classico. Mi sarebbe piaciuta molto di più QUESTA mattonella ma…
