You can make this blanket as wide and long as you'd like. There are about 50 photos to guide you through stitching the intricate motif, but you probably won't need to use the photos after a few repeats of the pattern stitch.
This blanket is a happy combination of both different stitches and repeats, so it's enough to keep you thinking without getting too bored. You'll need to know most of the foundation stitches — single, double and treble crochet — to crochet the blanket.
Designer F r a n c e N a d e a u crocheted this blanket with leftover baby yarn. If your leftovers are in small yardages, no worries; the brick can be multi-colored too! You can customize the border, too, adding more double crochets to make the border wider.
Ombré Blue Sky Baby Blanket
The color combinations for this blanket are endless, but the ombré certainly is inspiring! This is another great opportunity to use up scraps. If you're using different brands of yarn, just check your gauge to make sure everything is nice and even when you change colors.
Big Bold Chevrons Straight Blanket
Chevron lovers, rejoice! This blanket pattern combines bright colors with neutral ones for a chevron that is bold and gorgeous. Designer Amelia Abran does give you this warning: "Beware: This pattern contains adorable ruffles and flowers." We're definitely OK with that!
Happy Harlequin Blanket
If you need a travel project, this blanket is for you. The diamonds are crocheted separately then joined together , so you can crochet each small piece on the go without dragging too much yarn with you. The final step is to add a pretty border using all the colors of the blanket.
Forget that classic ripple afghan that's been on the back of your couch for decades. This crochet blanket puts a new spin on the classic ripple and gives it a cool new shape.
