PATTERN: Queen Bargello Wave Bedspread AND Bargello Blocks Throw!

Hi everyone! 

Obligatory acknowledgement here that I've been terrible at blogging consistently again, along with vague intention to do better in the future... 

This year has just been bananas for everyone! Hot tip: International Student Exchange and Regional Human Resources Consulting are NOT relaxing industries to work in during a global pandemic, 0/10 do not recommend. The jobs themselves are fascinating and interesting, but after the constant tsunamis of feelings coming at me for months on end, the idea of doing anything constructive other than staring at the wall has been too much to contemplate.

However, I have made progress on my goal of getting written/designed patterns actually up there and published this year, and today is one of those red letter days!

In August, I finally published (to no announcement and fanfare) my Impossible Hexagon Sweater and Cardigan patterns, which I'll blog about another day (but here are the links to the patterns if you want to have a look:

But, to today's news!

After the success of our Bargello Wave Baby Blanket, we decided to try and figure out how to make a bigger version that didn't lean even harder to the right, and by goodness we cracked it! Today I can share with you not one, but TWO larger bargello blanket patterns! Both of these test beauties were made by my partner in crochet crime Anne, and I'm sure you'll agree she's done an outstanding job.


Pattern Link: 

This design is worked corner to corner using a unique block method, along with the classic bargello style of maintaining the same block height whilst changing the width of each column of blocks. This is what creates the wave effect! Anne took her test blanket to the beach and my jaw literally dropped when the photos came in.


Pattern Link:

The bedspread is a massive 210cm square (unblocked) to fit your queen size bed, and is made with larger blocks and two strands of yarn held together. 

If you love both of these patterns, for the next two weeks 
(until Saturday 21 November), 
put both patterns in your Ravelry cart and use the code

  1. Good day, I bought the Bargello pattern from Rvelry but I cannot open the picture tutorial.
    Please help me with that, The video link also does not work.

    1. Send me a message on Ravelry and I'll reply with the links :)

  2. I also cannot open the picture tutorial.

    Also for the Bargello Blocks Throw is the pattern repeat 5 3 1 1 3 5 7 9 11 13 9 7 or 5 3 3 1 1 3 3 5 7 9 11 13 9 7 as both are mentioned in the pattern? I have sent a message by Ravelry but had no reply.

    Lastly is there an explanation anywhere on how to join the single stitch block where there is the stacked sc to the adjacent colour block?

    1. You should have got an email from Ravelry updating the pattern repeat and adding a video of the single stitch block :)

  3. Hi Michelle
    Indeed a tutorial to get me started. I am a visual learner and the sites in your pattern won't open. I am keen to get started. Making a sea theme blanket for my daughter. Cheers Marg.

  4. Thanks for sharing such a good information about Bargello wave bedspread. It is helpful me...
