Forgive me! I’m a little disorganized sometimes when it comes to following a schedule. There are only 3 squares left (2 after this one) and they will certainly be completed in time for you lovely people to complete your blankets by Christmas. I can’t wait to see pictures of the finished product!
One of the main reasons I’ve been so delayed with writing more patterns for squares is because I was originally hoping that I would be able to catch up to you guys! I’ve come to accept the fact that it simply will not happen. My university courses are in full swing and I am madly trying to prepare for my upcoming markets as quickly as I can. This little project will have to wait until I have my winter/semester break.
I’ve chosen the infamous Falcon as the next Marvel square. I thought he was deserving of having his own square for a few reasons. 1) He’s super cool and super brave to fly around all of the time with essentially a winged backpack on. 2) He started off being somewhat “anti-Avenger” but eventually joined the party anyways. 3) Falcons are just really cool birds.
Let’s get started!
I tried to be a little more detailed with this one, so I included some shading! Consider this shading to be optional, as you need very small amounts of the different shades of gray.If you don’t have any scraps of gray lying around or don’t want to buy three whole balls of yarn just to get the shading right, don’t worry about it. Choose one (or two) and work with that! I would suggest definitely sticking with a dark gray and then if you want to try adding a second colour, use a medium gray or classic gray and opt out of the light gray.
I think this is my favourite grid so far. I was nervous about the shading, but I think it adds a little extra “something” that the other grids haven’t had yet.
My boyfriend took a look at this grid and didn’t understand what the little “sideways 8” was in between the two wings. It’s Falcon’s goggles, just in case anyone else was wondering!
Here is the grid:
As always, I highly recommend printing this out and crossing each square off with a pen as you go. This will help you not get lost in the multiple different shades of gray. This pattern was designed in a mirror image effect, so if one side is different the whole thing will look a little off-balance.
I used a D for dark gray, and G for gray (medium gray), and an L for light gray. R is obviously for red, but I’m planning on using a nice dark burgundy that matches his outfit in the movies/comics. Hopefully this isn’t too confusing!
I can’t wait to see your finished squares and blankets! Don’t forget to use the hashtag #marvelgraphghan so I can see your beautiful progress. This is going to be an amazing piece once it is all finished up, and if you are planning on giving it away as a gift, the recipient is going to be ecstatic!
