Crochet inspiration - Pixel Crochet Blankets



Pixel crochet blankets or pillows are made of series of little crocheted granny squares where each square represents one pixel of the picture. When joined together, the squares or "pixels" make large images. 

An artist that masterfully makes wondrous blankets, bed spreads and pillows is Yasemin_Gungor. On her page she also shares pixelled images you can use to make an item. 

I have never tried pixel crochet, although I am seriously in love with this technique. It is no secret that roses are my favourite flowers and when it comes to crochet, I can crochet roses all day long. Eventually, I would love to try my hand at this and make a pixel rose blanket in the future.



Some other pieces made by Yasemin included these:

Gorgeous, I’m now determined to give it a go, although I don’t think it will br roses

Yes, I agree Divya! This is an amazing technique giving the creations Monet effect :)

I like the way pixel crochet looks and I love the pretty flower blanket. I never tried this technique before but it looks like it would be challenging.

It's stunning isn't it? I'm just thinking of all those ends to sew in! Totally worth it though I guess.

These are gorgeous! I just posted a Pixel rose quilt - Never thought about a crochet version. Thanks for sharing

I can't imagine having the patience to sew it all together. Beautiful when done though.
