Use this free crochet blanket pattern from Daisy Cottage Designs to create a color block blanket for your next project. Video tutorial & chart included. | color block crochet blanket, Daisy Cottage Designs crochet pattern, blanket crochet pattern free, easy crochet blanket pattern, crochet tutorial

As I’ve mentioned before, I love creating beautiful color block crochet blankets. However, many of them tend to be tedious and slow. Since I have crochet project ADD, this isn’t good for me. When I’m working on afghans or other blankets, I want to have something that’s going to work up relatively quickly and give me a lot of “bang for my buck” as far as time goes. This blanket does just that.

If you missed the first color block blanket that I posted, you’ll want to check that out before you go. You can find the free crochet pattern here.

Let me just start out by saying the stitch is a lot of fun and has a great texture. But, when you’re reading the pattern, it’s going to seem a little odd at first. Don’t despair – it’s not a difficult stitch and I created a video showing you exactly how to work the stitches. You can watch it below so please be sure to do so before you get started – or refer back to it as you’re working.

I used two different brands of yarn for this blanket. I used Vanna’s Choice yarn in the shade Mustard for the pop of color. For the other shades, I used Paint Box Simply Aran in Washed Teal, Misty Gray, and Champagne White. Despite the fact that I used warm and cool shades, I love the way these colors worked together. It took about 2 skeins of each for my blanket. It’s a child sized blanket or lapghan, in my opinion.

The free crochet pattern is right after these pictures.
