This is a large throw/afghan that is made using the multi-sequence color pooling technique. Then a beautiful solid color border is added to really frame the beautiful argyle look of the throw. I love the soft shades of this super saver colorway combined with the matching solids. Once you get the hang of pooling and set up the number of color sequence repeats you want for the throw this blanket works up rather quickly. Choose any variegated pooling yarn and a coordinating solid and make a throw for yourself.
Using different shades of blue, green and orange, you can work up this amazing Colorburst Granny Hexagon; you can choose your own crochet colors as well. The double crochet stitch is going to allow you to make these pretty hexagons. Here's the thing, you can join your hexagons to make a crocheted blanket one of two ways: you can join them once they're all complete or you can join as you go. The join-as-you-go method is discussed in the pattern as an easy method to choose. Either way, you're finished crocheted afghan is sure to look stunning and make heads turn when it's displayed in your home.
"The Percy Pig baby blanket has been on my list for a while to do and i really love how the pattern has turned out with all those cute little piggy faces! It did take some time trying to get the ears and the nose right though mind you but after changing it a couple of times i am actually really happy how this turned out even though it ended up a lot bigger then what i originally planned! For this crochet filet blanket pattern i used Paintbox Yarns Simply Aran for the main part of the blanket in the color Paper White, this is a filet crochet blanket pattern meaning the crochet pattern is worked in double crochet stitches and chain spaces to create a design like this, this is quite an easy pattern to follow and i have added an extra bonus in the paid pattern that will make it much quicker to work up instead of reading the pattern line by line."
This Billow Blanket is a stunning patchwork blanket crochet pattern that's quick easy and fun to crochet too! Constructed from 4 long rectangles of half double crochet stitches (2 of which have an optional easy crochet cable stitch running through them), you don't have lots of squares to join at the end, only a couple of long panels and you're done!
A wonderful piece of crochet home decor to add to your collection, a great yarn stash buster project and a beauty as a baby blanket too. The pattern includes a colour planning chart for you to plan ahead and customise yours to match your home and style perfectly.
Christmas is just around the corner and I have a quick and easy blanket pattern for you to make this holiday season: Christmas Snowflakes Afghan. You can adjust the size of this afghan and turn it into a bed spread or baby blanket by simply crocheting more or fewer hexagons. For this pattern, I used the granny snowflake hexagon for the blanket and a modified version of the dot border. I designed the blanket using aran (worsted) yarn and so it works up in no time. Change the colors to match any theme or color palette.
