THE YARN That I used for this Colorblocked Crochet Blanket
I recently finished a crochet Three Striped Blanket for my living room couch and still being inspired I attempted to make something similar for son Sam’s bedroom.
I used Red Heart Soft Yarn for the whole blanket and let Sam pick out the colors. I think he did a pretty good job on his color choices. I love how this colorful throw turned out and how much he enjoys using it.

I promise if you are new to crochet, then this blanket is for you! The best thing about this simple beginner blanket is that it works up so fast and uses only single crochets throughout the entire design! Single crochets are the perfect stitch to use when first starting a crochet journey.
