This simple color blocked crochet blanket pattern featuring fun stripes is extremely easy to make which makes it perfect for beginners.
I decided on using double crochets throughout the entire blanket because I love quick projects and I knew that using just one stitch would make it work up so much faster! Can anyone else relate? 🙂 I love the fact that when I needed to put it down and pick it back up I didn’t have to worry about what stitch I was on and could just keep double crocheting along.
For my whole blanket I used my favorite yarn, Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Dusty Blue, Charcoal Gray and Linen. The colors go so well together and are pretty neutral color palette which is just my taste! But feel free to make this blanket in any color you choose! Ready to get started? Follow along with the free crochet pattern below to make your very own blanket! Happy Crocheting!
