Curated Grey Gingham Box Collaboration with Yarnspirations!

Hello friends! I’m excited to let you know that we have collaborated once again with Yarnspirations to bring you a special deal on Caron Simply soft yarn. We curated this box to help you crochet a grey gingham blanket without all the guesswork of finding the perfect shades of grey.

We know how hard it is to find two perfect shades of the same color to achieve that gingham look. So we were very excited to be able add Feathered Grey, the lighter shade and hard shade to find, into the box. 


And, as a little bonus, Yarnspirations added a special Daisy Farm Crafts logo tape measure into the box. We wanted to add just a little extra fun to the box. 

The box is specially priced at $46.99  (regular price $71.99.) That is 12 skeins, 4 of each color, which is plenty to make a good size throw or a baby blanket with extra for another project.

I do have a grey gingham blanket as a work in progress currently, and as soon as I’m finished, I’ll be coming back to this post to link you to the pattern. But, this box can work with so many of our gingham patterns that we already have on our site. 

We have over 25 different gingham patterns, many of them use two shades of color to create the gingham look that will be similar to what you can create with this box. We also have patterns that only use 2 colors and the combination of the two colors create the gingham look. Here is an example of that type of gingham, (sort of like a picnic blanket gingham.)

In the above example, I like to use a 3-weight or smaller yarn since I am working with two strands of yarn to crochet. You need to use two strands of each color to create the third color. 

But for the type of gingham blankets that use two shades, the trick is to find two shades of the same color for the best effect. 

I also have a specific post I’ve written in the past called, How to Crochet a Gingham Blanket that can help you further with the technique of carrying yarn and how to create your own gingham look. 

There are also videos linked in that post and there also are videos linked in most of the blanket patterns. I highly recommend making a practice swatch after you choose a pattern to use. Not only do you need to get the hook size right, you want to make sure you’re confident in switching yarn colors and carrying yarn along the row. 

As you scroll through the following list, I hope you have fun choosing a great blanket to make! I have experimented with all sorts of different stitches and stitch combinations. If one isn’t working for you, don’t hesitate to switch it up and try something else. 

Overall, most people let me know that the look of a gingham blanket feels intimidating at first and seems too hard to make, but when they give it a try, they find that it’s easier than they thought and so very fun to watch the blanket grow. 

I hope you give it a try! 

XO, Tiffany
